Heh, just saw this now - true electronic minimalism here:

I look at Pitchfork fairly regularly while in various states of internet-trance, mostly to see if there are new things I'm interested in because otherwise unless they're on LPTJ I won't even know they exist, but I almost never read reviews of anything except artists I already know. It's a system that serves me fairly well--hadn't realized there was a new Circus Devils album till it showed up there last week, for instance.

Anyway, in the past few weeks I've tried out a couple of random well-reviewed bands, and I don't know, they just don't do much for me. That Fang Island thing has this compulsory-fun vibe that kind of skeeves me out, and then this Harlem album is striking me as okay, but not really very memorable, and I find myself already skipping its tracks when they come up on my MP3 player.

I'm sure there's a counterexample or ten out there--Gaslight Anthem comes to mind--but I can barely think of any bands that have cropped up since, say, 2003 or so that I really have much interest in. Which I guess is what happens, but always kind of weird to recognize it.

Finn just started rapping "Welcome to the world of the plastic beach" out of nowhere. I knew he liked that Gorillaz album but I didn't realize he was picking up on the lyrics.

In conclusion, when your 4-year old starts imitating Snoop Dogg, it's pretty awesome.

Check it out, this is D's high school: http://www.daytondailynews.com/dayton-sports/high-school-sports/northridge-launches-hall-of-fame-634023.html



I heard recently from a friend of ours that another college acquaintance and native Daytonian has since moved back and started hanging with the Pollard crew. Apparently he was hospitalized with alcohol poisoning twice in 2009. If you can't hang, Vince...

Yeah. But this time we're hearing from his kith and kin, apparently.

Record Store Day tomorrow. I'll be at the high seas most of the day. BBQ & live performance with Stefan Neville (Pumice), Jordan O'Jordan, The Broken Heartbreakers, Ghostwave, Mr. Slackjaw, Golden Axe.
Good times.

So Chris Corsano, Ben Chasny and Richard Bishop are now together in a band called Rangda, and they have a record out next month, and judging from the mp3 and the other snippets up on Drag City's home page, this might be really, really awesome.

I see they're touring Europe soon, but not anywhere that's at manageable distance, sadly.

Guess my visit is ill-timed! But yeah, let me know if you make it to one of those - I'm sure you've seen both Bishop and Chasny already, and I can vouch for Corsano's greatness live.

There would be Motorpsycho in Eindhoven on the Sunday of your visit, if you feel so inclined. I think it could be fun! Also, if M. found out that we were passing up on the chance, we'd be in trouble.

Why not? M. might want to come along, actually? (provided she can take Monday morning off work, I guess)

I asked her a little while ago and she said she wouldn't be able to make it that weekend. However, I was unaware at the time - and I assume that she might have been too - that this is actually Pentecost weekend, i.e. she wouldn't have to take Monday off work as it's a holiday anyway. (Pretty sure it is in Germany, anyway - it definitely is here.)

Does anyone remember Cold Water Flat? They were a Buffalo Tom-esque obscure band from the 90's, and apparently their drummer has won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. The world can be so strange.

Bill spent like twenty minutes yesterday putting together a song for his joke hardcore band to put on a comp:

Quote
"Eyjafjallajökull is a Fucking Sellout"

It was decreed by Odin
That Iceland's volcano would start explodin'
The eruption lasted so fucking long
It was smoking more than fucking Cheech and Chong

being trapped in Scotland is not to my liking
But the ash cloud's controlled by the power of vikings
That norse bullshit fucking cancelled my flight
so I paid for hotels for five more fucking nights

Eyjafjallajökull
What you're doing is not fucking cool
I can't get home any time soon
You barfed lava on my honeymoon

I wish to lodge a formal complaint
That Mount Doom over there is being a total taint
I'd demand reimbursement for my travel debt
But that asshole mountain won't cut me a check

Dude, I just want to go home
But I'm trapped by a fucking cloud of smoke.

Eyjafjallajökull
What you're doing is not fucking cool!

Unfortunately, Eyjafjallajökull rhymes with, approximately, 'Foot'll'.
