    Good Monday, Whitechapel. I'm up early this morning, may as well turn this one over.

    New week's releases are up at - just choose a genre from left and click "magic mix" to stream excerpts from the new releases. I usually swing by Largeheated Boy's Try it before you buy it posts on Tuesday mornings, too (mostly because I like to put an album cover to the mp3s, yes).

    So what's on your playlist for this week?

    J.H. Kapsberger - Lute Works (Paul O'Dette)

    Dave Douglas' Tiny Bell Trio - Songs for Wandering Souls

    Dead Low Tide:: former Murder City Devils powerful noise-rock masterpiece

    Bali Gamelan and Kecak:: primal, soothing, and intense... does that contradict?

    Chromeo: Fancy Footwork:: if you took all of the high points from the Breakin' 2 soundtrack and threw in a little Midnight Star this is what you'd get.

    Battles: Mirrored:: futuremusic.... sounds like the music that robots will make... in the future....

    Yo La Tengo - ...well, I would say I'm listening to their album "I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass" a lot, except the truth is that out of the 15 songs on it, I really only listen to two--the first one and the last one. Between them, "Pass the Hatchet, I Think I'm Goodkind" and "The Story Of Yo La Tango" [yes, the misspelling is intentional] are 23 minutes of the album, and they're so far above the rest of the songs on there that I can't stomach playing the rest of the album at the same time as those two songs. So yeah, really just those two songs. A lot.


    Lemuria - Get Better
    Stereolab - Peng!
    Motorpsycho - Little Lucid Moments; Black Hole/Blank Canvas
    Oasis - Definitely Maybe
    Suede - Self-titled

    Funny kind of mood today - looking for a mixture of the old and new. This is what I found:

    David Holmes & The Free Association - Come Get It, I Got It
    oddball 60s sounds and funk dug up, unstitched and sewn back together with a rusty needle

    Eliza Magill - Fingers And Fists
    friend-of-a-friend, short and sweet piano sounds, delicate and perfect production, growing on me

    Telafonica - Morpheme
    trawling through deep house, trip hop, abstract and ambient pop and resurfacing with pearls from all of them

    I need to say how fond of DOUBLE HELIX I have grown in a short time.
    This time I'm going to listen to my friends Steeple Remove
    They are releasing a new lp. I'm proud of them. They've been playing music like, for ever.
    (You can also hear scraps of what they did before here

    They used to be on SORDIDE SENTIMENTAL the first label who signed Joy Division. Now you know.

    you've no idea how angry i am with the world.

    been mostly listening to damn water fountain because they said they'd kill me if i didn't.

    My band (Verbatim) released tonight to the internet a free record called Pool Party.

    The whole idea is that we lock ourselves in the studio for the weekend and must release to the Internet whatever we have done by Sunday night. Anything goes. So we threw a party and just sorta made a record while it was going on. Very little rehearsing, very little dubbing. A whole bunch of first takes. Feels to me like a mid-80's Replacements record. And oh yeah, we have a song inspired by the Great Zombie Debate.

    We also did another one like this in March called Pizza Party.

    Enjoy, and lemme know what you think.

    King Tuff - Was Dead

    Sounds like if Marc Bolan was fronting the Velvet Underground.

    Statues - Terminal Bedroom

    A mix of 70's punk and 80's power-pop, somewhere in between The Undertones and The Replacements.

    I just got Destroyer 666's Cold Steel For An Iron Age and it's jettisoned them to the top of play list rotation. Nevermore's Dreaming Neon Black is coming in around number 2, after that it falls apart, I'm currently listening to some Rollins Band. Some Smashing Pumpkins is extremely possible along with my usual arrangement of Nick Cave, possibly changing to some P.J. Harvey in the wee hours of the morning.
