SAMIAM: Orphan Works: 2 x LP

Mar 07, 2011

I’m going to be perfectly honest; this is the first time I’ve ever actually listened to Samiam. These recordings are a collection of some studio outtakes, covers, and live on the radio sets taken from their more “popular” active years. What a sucker I was for ignoring them for this long. These songs are earnest, heartfelt, and deeply emotional for a band that at one point was heavily commercially promoted. It makes sense why people with no actual taste in music never caught on. I don’t know what my excuse is.
