    It's just available on the Labrador site right? It said only 1000 copies for the 2nd press and the first run of 500 sold out so I ordered it. It's an album that definitely holds up well after repeat listens.

    Also picked up Tame Impala-Innerspeaker from Insound. I hate ordering from there but apparently they're the only distributor in the US.

    You're right. Ugh, 17 euro. Oh well.

    Jared, it looks like the other Big Troubles 7" is only available through Insound.

    He has a few leftovers posted from SXSW. You aren't missing a ton. Nicer packaging. Limited to 55 copies. The artwork is by Alice Cohen (great songwriter in her own right, who has had a couple gallery shows). Cool stuff, but not worth buying a second copy for. Each one is different, which is pretty nifty.

    That's cool. Yeah, don't need to spend the extra $$$ though. I've put in waaaaaaaay too many mail orders to various places recently. I need to cool it.

    So Caboladies' Live Anywhere on Aguirre Records is one of the neatest things I've listened to this year. These guys (who operate separately under the Flower Man and Carl Calm monikers) have been rockin my nuts for a while now but this really takes the cake. It's a natural predecessor to Emeralds' What Happened in many ways. Not only because it is live, but because it manages to capture what seems to be a transitional period for the band. There are some incredible moments where the synth driven musique concrete nature of their sound coalesces into larger textures that then inexplicably deconstruct into an entirely different barrage of noises. Really fantastic stuff.

    I know I'm a little late to the party but I love the Matthew Dear album. Every track hits the spot for me, however "Slowdance" and "Shortwave" are my fucking jams. His music has always intrigued me, but it's never really clicked for me up until this point. It makes me want to give Asa Breed another shot, as it got kind of swept away and forgotten at the time of its purchase.

    Warm Climate's Camouflage On The River Wretched is absolutely wonderful. I think this'll be the threshold for them... My guess is the next substantial thing they do will be on a bigger label like Not Not Fun. It's just too good to be on small (although 200 copies isn't anything to sneeze at for a band like them) tape runs. I think Stunned still has a few copies.

    It's basically avante-folk that drifts into weird jazz from time to time. There are elements of drone and noise, but they aren't the principal qualities of the music. Love the female vocalist and really hope to see big things from these guys in the future.

    Label writeup:

    Even those familiar with Warm Climate’s last decade of underground madness will find ‘Camouflage on the River Wretched’ a most combustible cocktail. Shaken, stirred, or molotov – any preference? No matter, it’s all going to be pleasantly poured down the hatch when Warm Climate’s iconoclastic bandleader Seth Kasselman grips microphone and guitar. Moving along from 2009’s pop dementia sleeper-hit ‘Edible Homes’, now Warm Climate explores dark urban noir, graffiti-speckled rock n’ roll, and mysterious cinematic narrative. Sounds about right for a group who was publicly declared “Best Band in L.A.” to the hearty agreement of the audience at this year’s Bottled Smoke Festival. Hell, Warm Climate IS Los Angeles, or at least one especially crucial aspect of its tremendous Voice. In all its befuddling and inscrutable glory, the city itself seeks purest expression through the genius minds who roam its Escher-like sprawl. Warm Climate has deftly responded to the schizoid urges of L.A. in good measure: with an incredible music that will be remembered long after the cars, buildings, and sea of people. Special edition of 222 pro-dubbed & imprinted c36 tapes w/ double-sided jcard and insert.

    I am really glad I gave Solar Bears a chance despite the artwork...



    But I am a sucker for artists who are compared to Boards of Canada.

    I'd say it's cinematic instrumental electronic music, but Planet Mu gets more descriptive...

    Solar Bears’ music is a many-faceted soundworld that hangs together through a mix of the rich colours of hip hop inflected analogue electronica with touches of the shimmering neon synths of late 70’s early 80’s Kosmiche music.

    It’s warm and organic with a languid, pastoral grace that intertwines acoustic and rock instruments with electronics. Their tracks twist through prog rock’s structures and sounds, occasionally making sharp turns into noisier, tense post rock territory.
    That is just an EP. The full-length comes out in September.

    so, after a first listen i am unsure if i will either love, or hate, the new Street Sweeper Social Club.

    it opens with a track ("Ghetto Blaster") that sounds like something off of The Battle of Los Angeles...musically, at least. Boots does his best Zack impression in the first verse, then sounds a lot like Eminem (cadence) in the 2nd. it's a puzzling track that didn't start things off so great for me.



    next up is "Everythang" which sounds like one of the best Coup tracks ever. good track. "Scars" is another good one off this.



    there are two covers on this EP - "Paper Planes" (delete - this track should be taken to the woodshed and shot right in the fucking head) and "Mama Said Knock You Out", which has been a live set highlight. i'm glad they laid down this track.



    i guess i like it enough.

    So I listened to some new tracks off the new No Age album. You can listen to em here.

    New album comes out September 28th. What is everyones thoughts on these tracks? After one listen... I didn't like either very much. I will be very disapointed if these tracks are telling for the rest of the album.

    This is true, I have only given each track one listen. However, there was really nothing about either that made me want to go back and give them another chance. At Sasquatch they played a bunch of new material and I remember liking most of the new songs I heard, so I haven't given up on the album yet. Maybe these songs will make more sense in context of the album.

    The vocals in both are pretty terrible.

    Better and Closer is fantastic and the second it ends I hit Repeat All. Cracking album. I don't think it's got the highs of some of Land of Talks other stuff, but I don't think it's really got a weak track either.
