I received an automated email from Bandcamp alerting me to a new song by Melbourne band Skipping Girl Vinegar. I could tell it was automated by the way it started:
“Greetings Peter Scott”
That sounds to me as if I was being addressed by an alien. They may as well have said “Greetings Earthling”.
Anyway, Skipping Girl Vinegar’s latest song reminded me a lot of their 2008 song “Sift The Noise” – the choruses of both songs are virtually identical.
Because I enjoyed “Sift The Noise” and posted it on the blog in 2010, I thought I’d post the new song too.
Well, why not?

My friend Scott (Hi, Scotty!) posted this on Facebook yesterday, but I felt the need to put it here too (‘cos I like it):
Skipping Girl Vinegar – “Here She Comes“ (2011)
By the way: two more Mike Viola CDs arrived in the post, so I’m going to be a-pesterin’ you with at least two more Mike Viola songs shortly. Be warned.

I’m usually allergic to all that New-Folk* stuff – the kind of music that’s full of scruffy artists armed with acoustic instruments and earnestness (there’s only so much thrift-shop shirts and sensitivity I can take) – but I do like this:
