Title: 20th Century Boy
The Replacements - 20th Century Boy
In addition to many, many other things, The Replacements happened to be the greatest cover band that ever did live.
(Your narrator may have spent the last evening with this and a bottle of whiskey)
Title: That's When I Reach for My Revolver
Artist: Mission of Burma
Mission of Burma - That’s When I Reach for My Revolver
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to release new album ‘Push the Sky Away’ in February | DETAILS
Title: Death Valley '69
Artist: Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth - Death Valley ‘69
Title: Get Off
Metz - Rats
There have been a number of bands doing the Jesus-Lizard/Amphetamine-Reptile-type-thing recently, but only a few of them seem to have figured out the secret to doing it right. You see, as gleefully insane as records like Goat sounded, they were meticulously constructed (it shouldn’t be surprising Duane Denison is classically trained). Luckily for us Metz is in on the secret, and have taken it close to heart.
Tim Hecker - “I’m Transmitting Tonight” (Radio Amor)
This one’s for the media outlets with working transmitters on the East Coast.
Title: Thank You For Sending Me An Angel (Country Angel Version)
Artist: Talking Heads
Talking Heads - Thank You For Sending Me An Angel [Country Angel Version]
(More Songs About Buildings And Food, 2005 Re-issue)
Unclassifiable super-geniuses Talking Heads are one of the few Important Bands whose endless reissues, remasters, compilations, box sets, rarity collections, bootlegs, concert DVDs and secret radio transmissions that can only heard by people with dental work done in Soviet Russia in the late 1970’s are totally, 100% worth tracking down and spending all your money on. Also, read David Byrne’s book, it is excellent.
Seattle’s best kept secret, Police Teeth ( James Burns: vocals/guitar - Chris Rasmussen: vocals/bass - Richy Boyer: drums), have just released their sophomore, self titled album on Latest Flame Records. This noisy (and by their own admission), sweaty, mustache wearing 3 piece who been compared with Les Savy Fav and the Thermals are in the middle of a mini tour of the USA.
Check out their video from the the album, Emmanuelle In Renton.
Police Teeth are the best
Seems like Rose Melberg of Tiger Trap, The Softies, Go Sailor, etc has started a new Vancouver based band called PUPS. I’m stoked, hopefully they start playing shows soon. I would love to see Rose perform in person, and the rest of the band too of course, but yeah.
As of now you can listen to two songs on their bandcamp.
Jason Molina - Heart My Heart
New music from Jason Molina (well, older music recently released), which serves to fill our Molina jones, which by now is pretty deep. This feels like an acoustic demo - it very much is - but captures Molina at his best, most rootless wandering. Come back soon Jason, please.
Title: Everytime I'm With You (feat. Jason Lytle)
Sparklehorse & Jason Lytle - Everytime I’m With You
(Dark Night Of The Soul)
This song reminds me of far too many women. Real talk.
mclusky- love song for a mexican
Andy Falkous certainly had a knack for titling things. One of mclusky’s most straightforward, anthemic tracks, so of course it only saw release as a limited edition bonus track on a posthumous compilation.
In their defence, they put two versions of it on the posthumous compilation, and the second one is friggin astounding
