A couple weeks back, after a bit of an absence, I wrote a review.

See, I just wanted an excuse to post a South Park clip, although everybody knows that Randy Marsh has convincingly overtaken Cartman as being the funniest character on the show.

No, no, it wasn't me - it was a SPOOKY GHOST!

All tangents aside, the review covered Digital Daggers’ debut EP, entitled Human Emotion. Sonically, it sounds a bit like Frou Frou meets Boards of Canada. The group is comprised of Andrea Wasse (The Weekend, not to be confused with newcomer artist The Weeknd) and Space (he of many hats, including his solo effort, Memento, and Kevin Martin & The Hiwatts), the band has garnered a bit of buzz from their covers of “New York New York” (Liza Minelli, Frank Sinatra) and “Head Over Heels” (Tears for Fears), not to mention their original tunes being spotted in various television shows (“Surrender” on ‘One Life to Live;’ “No Easy Way” on ‘Nikita’).

Today, I wanted to highlight the title track, which is my personal favorite from the EP.

Digital Daggers – “Human Emotion”

Never again with your human emotions
I won’t take the hate from your heart
I’ll take my chances outside of your kingdom
You know when I stop I won’t start

I long to be where the stars still shine brightly
You know they won’t breathe where you are
I try to run but my feet move too slowly
And I feel the earth fall apart

Human emotion
Set it free piece by piece
Let love leave piece by piece

Never again with your bitter convictions
I won’t let them live in the light
Sever the ties
Leave you here in your fiction
Alone where the dreams only die

I won’t take the hate from your heart
I won’t let it tear mine apart
Never again

You can buy the Human Emotion EP, complete with album art, at Digital Daggers’ Bandcamp for less than $4. Songs are also available for purchase on iTunes.

Since it's so quiet in here, I'll be the first to say I fell in love with this after about 24 seconds.

look at all this... this... ECTOPLASM!
