XU Expanding Universe Digital EP Release

I am excira, delira and gratified from an artistic point of view to be releasing even more new music. This is my second release in May. The first was the stupendous rocker “Stupid Is As Stupid Does’ released as a single & digitally available everywhere for streaming and download on May Day.

Now comes a delicious acoustic treat – I wanted this to have a freshness, a just made feeling on it. Like they made what were known as records ‘back in the day’. And it was so fresh we nearly ran out of XLR cables to get all of that lively liveness into the engineering tubes and whatsits.

AVAILABLE on digital format for the very first time:

The theory and scientific posit is that the Universe started from a single explosion of a concentrated source of energy. A starting point and everything moved out from that point of origin. Adam and Eve on a starburst flying with the snake as cosmic flight attendant…apple, apple, apple?

The Big Bang:
“The model describes how the universe expanded and the farther away galaxies are, the faster they are moving away from Earth. If we extrapolated backwards in time using the laws of physics, the prediction is that just before the big bang there was a time before time (a singularity)”

Ah John! C’mon! You’re losing us. Ye can’t be serious singing songs about physics.

Well fair enough, give it a listen it’s not about cosmology exactly but it’s not, not about it either.

Ah here! Ye are doing our heads in. We give in, where can we play the ting?
