Dan Leithauser If you listened to mid 90's 4AD releases, love shoegazing influenced music, with a variety of vocal styles, guitar work, electronics and strong production, you will enjoy my violent ego. Favorite track: Pesky fly.

spacefox is it weird that Velvet Cacoon stealing a number of tracks from this album turned me to them? in any case, this is a good collection. the vocal arrangements are definitely the highlight Favorite track: What if She leaves.

    NOTE: it came to our attention that some folks are sharing this same record (as also the early demos) for free in internet, - that's kind of flattering, I mean, we think that sharing music is fine, we download music, too, - but you know, this is your chance to support My Violent Ego if you really like our Music, and if you know you can contribute for it. Thank you.
