1.) New stuff up over at Foxy Digitalis, including a recollection of one of my all time faves - CHROME - by founding member Gary Spain, gushing reviews of the new Angels of Light (by me), the awesome "Tone of The Universe..." comp on P-arcana and the new Wooden Wand and Vasnishing Voice album, etc; plus interviews with Ariel Pink, Drekka, Funeral Folk, a chat with my old pal and guiding light, Phil McMullen, and plenty more. Check it.
2.) Arthurfest this Sep 4 & 5th looks to about as good as I figured it'd be, only better. I hope to make it, but it's gonna be tough with another Cali trip in the works the following month. Check out the lineup though:
THE BLACK KEYS
OLIVIA TREMOR CONTROL
THE JUAN MACLEAN
COMETS ON FIRE
SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE
SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN
MARISSA NADLER & JACK ROSE
BECKY STARK & THE LAVENDER DIAMOND
with more acts to be announced shortly.
Jack Rose and Marissa Nadler together? You've got to be shittin'! Currently listening to the incredible "Catonapotato" by Volcano the Bear and totally loving every second...get it NOW!
