    Do any of you guys listen to Henry's Dress? If not, you should. A really good band that was on Slumberland's label in the 90's

    I just recently picked up a 'best of' collection from Ian Dury and the Blockheads after hearing 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick'. I had heard 'What a Waste' and 'Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll', but wasn't incredibly crazy about them. But I really like this dude - the way he speaks/sings songs, and his accent come off really funny at times. They had kind of unique sound that set them apart from all the angry punk and postpunk music at the time.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    The sound on that is crap. The song is pretty cool, and I can hear it sounding much cooler in the head. All trippy like init

    well this makes me happy.

    A Winged Victory for the Sullen will release some new music later this year. That project will keep me busy for the rest of my life methinks.

    For a bunch of crazy reasons I haven't been to a live show in forever, but I'm going to see Aby Wolf's new project with Grant Cutler at 7th Street Entry tonight.

    So the past few months I've fallen in love with a lot of underappreciated bands from Slumberland/K Recs, i guess "twee" if you will? Though this band Black Tambourine has some MBV vibes. Really good!





    If you like this, you should check out Henry's Dress, Boyracer, Go Sailor, Talulah Gosh, Shop Assistants. I'm sure you guys have heard of some of those but yeah..nothing too mind-blowing, just some good ole pop jams.

    Yes! Ya same here, I'm pretty familiar with their 90's output but haven't checked out any of their current stuff. I know they did a 20th anniversary show a couple years ago in SF with a bunch of those bands listed above, from YouTube vids it looked so great.

    Looks like you need to meet this charmingly awkward young lady from England. Her name is Sarah Records and she had TONS of great bands in this vein. The Field Mice would be the ideal act to start with.

    Just looked them up and yeah, I could totally see myself loving this label. Two acts I'm already familiar with and like are Boyracer and Heavenly, will definitely check out them and the others. Thanks!

    If you like Heavenly you'll love the whole Sarah catalog. Tiger Trap is another act well worth checking out.

    And it should go without saying if you're listening to K bands, but Beat Happening. They were genius.

    For sure, yes Tiger Trap are awesome! Yeah, I lovee Beat Happening, didn't list them 'cause ya they're the obvious one. I think I remember you saying you haven't checked out The Halo Benders? If not, you should totally listen to the Rebel's Not In. Besides BH, my favorite thing Calvin has done.

    Feels, if you're going to dive into Sarah Records, you'll also want to cross-reference it with the C-86 movement. There's a fair amount of overlap between the two, but that mid-80's (mostly English) period is one of my favorites.

    Oh yeah! That's the compilation right? I've heard a few songs from it (The Pastels, Mighty Mighty, Shop Assistants, The Wedding Present) but have never listened to the whole thing. Need to check that out as well

    Yes! One of my favorite bands of all-time, the Microphones, will be reissuing five of their albums on vinyl in what sounds like deluxe and beautiful packaging. I already have the Glow, Pt. 2 but those other ones are extremely hard to find. So this is great news.

    http://pitchfork.com/news/49719-moun...e-microphones/


    (By the way, K Records still has the 2008 reissue of the Glow, Pt. 2 available. Buy it. It's a phenomenal album spread across 3 LP's. It also comes in the best packaging I've probably ever seen. K is also really personal and sent me a thank you note for the purchase, and a really cool postcard with a kitten on it along with the record. It's only $25.00 with free shipping!)

    It's really frustrating when you fall in love with an atypical song from a band so that when you search out more songs like it in their discography, there's really nothing that really resembles it. Some times you still end up finding a good band or whatever, but you still keep expecting to hear the band you heard in that first song.

    In this particular case, it's The Clientele - "Bookshop Casanova." I heard it on Pitchfork years ago and every time I try to listen to a full album by them I can't help but want to hear just that track even though I know the albums are probably fine in their own right if I'd take them on their own terms.

    I am incredibly HAPPY about finding out that a large amount of Frank Zappa discography is on Spotify. He was the first person I type into Spotify and found nothing for him when I first got Spotify. Today on Facebook I saw someone listening to him and now I am blissfully happy about listening to Spotify.I guess i will not cancel my subscription.

    I've been listening to these for the past month:

    www.crapfromthepast.com

    There's mp3s of every show - years of them - at archive.org. It's fantastic, I've found lots of great songs. Might just spend the rest of the year listening to these.
