Hey, did I somehow miss the new Algernon at the merch table at the show I was at just two weeks ago?!  They certainly didn't mention it from the stage, nor do I see it mentioned currently at their myspace or blog sites.  You'd think these dudes were trying to bury their own damn record.   I'd buy a copy if I could only FIND THE FUCKING THING!  Sheesh.

According to this entry on their blog, they were selling it at the show you saw. Like I said, though, it is CD only at the moment, so maybe that's why you didn't notice it. They don't appear to have it available for mailorder right now, which sorta makes sense since they pressed it themselves, though you'd expect that they'd be able to set up a way to receive orders that they would just fill at the end of tour. Maybe they're afraid they'll sell too many copies on tour and be unable to fill the orders they'll get? Who knows. Anyway, you can download it for free all over the place--it's too bad it's way easier to do that than actually buy it.

Arrived in the mail today:

Pink Reason - Shit in the Garden LP
Hatefuck - Rock 'n Roll Letdown 7"

How you liking The Pink Reason Jeb? It's quickly crawled under my skin. Great stuff.
I've not heard the Hatefuck 7" though I've seen it around. Kevin's old hardcore band or something right?

fucked up are amazing, i want that album. the lead singer singled me out when i saw them play last year but it really did get my attention having him jump off stage to spit-spray beer in my face and pinch my cheeks, then again to give me a kiss and then drop to the ground to silently pray on his back. in his underwear. i'm pretty sure the rumour is true that his band mates are scared of him.

not today but most recently:

I don't own nor have I ever really heard Fucked Up. It often occurs to me that's kinda ridiculous.

That Actress album is great.

I haven't spent enough time with it, even though I've had a digital copy for like four months. It's not really doing it for me the same way the first album did, but there are a few tracks that are really, really good. It's a little too optimistic-sounding for me so far, though.

HF is indeed (one of) Kevin's old hardcore band(s). I haven't actually listened to this record yet, because my turntable took a shit, but I've heard most of this stuff before.

Finally got D Plan's Emergency & I on vinyl (damn this thing is pretty) and a 2-disc Motorhead compilation for eight bucks.

Also: forgot that I'd bought both Icky Mettle and White Trash Heroes a few weeks back and stuck 'em in my bookbag.  Found 'em today.  It was like a surprise gift from myself!

Pre-ordered the new Richard Buckner, Our Blood, yesterday.


It comes out first week of August I think. I may get an album art poster along with the CD, which would be rad. There are really only three artists whose stuff I would pre-order without first listening to it: Elephant Micah, J. Tillman, and Buckner. Dude is so amazing, and his stuff seems to get better and better every time I hear it. I ran across some Buckner covers and compilation tracks I'd never heard before recently, and if anybody's interested, I've already created links for them. Here's one of them, I think from a tribute album to Tom T. Hall (who I've never heard of):

Richard Buckner - Rarities 1994-2009 - 09 When Love Is Gone (Tom T. Hall Cover)

Hey, I bought some records yesterday! It was fun! L & Finn & I were walking back to my car from the restaurant and popped into Wuxtry Records as we passed by. Picked up a couple records I already had on mp3:




Phosphorescent - Here’s to Taking It Easy (gorgeous vinyl)  /  David Kilgour - Left by Soft

And actually took a risk, which I *never* do anymore. On turntable yesterday, I’d heard this this track “Home” by a band called Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. I really loved it but everyone in the room was talking about how overplayed it was, which baffled me of course, since I’d never even heard of the band before. But poking around in the record store yesterday, there was the album, right there in a shoebox on the counter.

Man! It was such a thrill to make that impulse purchase! The digital era has really made it difficult to experience that sort of record shopping these days, but it was so much fun (“Is this going to suck? Maybe! Let’s find out!”) that I think I’m going to make a concerted effort to surprise myself more often.

Here’s the record in question (and hey! I’m halfway through so far and it *is* good! Woo! I did recognize one song from a car commercial, so I feel a little guilty for liking it but whatevs.)

The 40 Watt Club hosted a record swap on Saturday. I didn't have much time to browse--went down there on my lunch break--but I looked through enough records to find 3 worth taking home (all on vinyl):





Tangerine Dream - Rubycon
Jens Lekman - Night Falls Over Kortedala
Harry Nilsson - Aerial Pandemonium Ballet

I spent $18, I think.

That Boston Spaceships cover! That is the ugliest thing I've seen for a long time. And as for 'Let It Beard', well they're hardly in ZZ Top  territory there either. The bloke on the right simply hasn't shaved for 2 or 3 days.

yeah, that's pollard. apparently he was ordered to grow a beard for the cover, but it got too itchy for him, so he had his wife take this picture and then shaved immediately after.

it IS an ugly cover.

 Very Happy

Brother Hawk - Love Songs

I know I gotta sound like a broken record on this, but YOU GUYS. This is crazy good. Hard to believe it was recorded in the same basement as Mice in Cars' last EP.  Oh, and they got the singer's dad to throw some harmonica down for it.  Do a thing, don't make me beg ya.
