what started out as an outlet to explore sounds, ended up having 2 EPs which are conceptually linked.

Here's the review:

Episode 1.

The Durio Dulcis EP

Daring. Non-conformist and radical. These 3 words describes 8 ears after my listening session of the EP. On the album cover a warning of some sort of is issued – either you like it or hate it. There is no middle way path.

I was told that in Latin Durio Dulcis means sweetest durian. However the music by 8 ears is far from sweet. The EP portrays a dramatic electronica soundscape, at times angry and sometimes sarcastically dark. Definitely not for the faint hearted. Perhaps it reflects the hidden thoughts and emotions of the songwriter during that 24 months when this EP was conceptualized.

Atanos Thgilnoom is achingly sad and painful. Perhaps the erhu gave it added emotive weight. Listen carefully and see if you can catch traces of Moonlight Sonata in reverse mode.

On Luv Unltd the tone is more cherubic. Duo-lo features more strings and the erhu with a dash of asian flavour.

If you are bored with the general mainstream music and feel kinda cheeky and experimental, The Durio Dulcis EP would be an interesting proposition. Ther... (+) expand

we are from kuala lumpur, malaysia. we just released our debut cd call ninetyfivezeroeight. it's currently available for download at Amazon MP3.

it'll soon be up in all iTunes stores. our official website is in the works at the moment. do visit our myspace site. there are some FOC songs for download, as part of our promotions. these remixes are very much inspired by the 80's 12" mixes.

in fact, we are very much influenced by the music from the 80's. do check us out. feedbacks are much appreciated.

thank you


ps. sorry for the spam. don't know how else we could get ears to our site.

No problem. I'm often short on time so, if people don't come to me it's hard to find them. :)

Hello dear Zuba listener

Our dear friend mbjorgen has been reaaaaaly nice and helpfull to us yesterday in 2 ways:
1. She changed her vote for Mes Fantomes so finally we've got a winner and it's from now on downloadable for a week, feel free to add it to your personal collection!
2. She revived Hail Africa for it to go on the home page, so, be nice with her (and us of course ;-D) and bump it up!!!

A few bumps would be nice anyway because we'd looooove to share more songs with you, but unfortunately we need to beg for bumpybumpies becos we're stuck on level 13... even our friends Cactus Bob are now in front of us again!!! (cheeky blink blink blink)

Thanks for the support

the weird thing is that your msg is telling people to sample your tunes and not to come and have a listen... even if not many listeners mix music. Spamming is helpful when it's well done and a bit personal!

It's not SPAM, don't worry about it. How else am I supposed to find new bands? Mr. Jordano should expect to hear from artists on this site. That's the beauty of the Sixty One and something most people aren't privy to.
