Samiam have uploaded some vintage demos for your listening pleasure. Frontman Sergie Loobkoff said this about the tapes:
“I [discovered some] demos and stuff for [two] Samiam records. I guess that isn’t stupendously interesting, but within them were six songs I only the vaguest memory of writing, rehearsing or recording. lost songs from the decade before last, I emailed them to the other guys (of that era) and they didn’t remember either. I’m sure it’s 17 years ago…but you’d think we would go, “oh yeah that shitty song….’ They aren’t that great quality, but one of the Clumsy songs (called “Issues’) was an actual studio song from that session, unmixed and discarded…similar to the song, “I want more’ that went on our Orphan Works compilation record. Then there is a ‘YAFMO’ rehearsal room recording (called ‘lie to me’) that is better than most of the songs that went on that record. stuff like this isn’t going to win fans…but I think samiam peoples would love to hear….it’s a wierd thing to uncover.”
Check out the songs here.
Samiam’s latest release was last year’s critically acclaimed “Trips.”
