Back to Work

Well, it's been my first day back at work. I made a pile of money, and that will help pay off the debt I incurred in the two months I had off. Doctor gave me all this time off, but, since I am self employed there was no money in the government coffers to pay myself with. A wash.

I hope my podcasts are making someone's day better. I am in touch with many acts and they are happy to allow me to use their mp3 tracks.

Please, if you have any sort of comment, please leave one. I see a lot of downloads and listens, but I have no feedback.

Most boring Christmas ever: 2007.
Takes the number one spot when my psycho girlfriend's sister told to me shut the f*ck" up" on Christmas Eve. I wasn't even talking to her, but she decided to pipe in because she didn't like me being a male. I can protect my wife without controlling her.

Sambassadeur "Final say" - free MP3 single

Sambassadeur "Final say" - free MP3 single

Second single from Sambassadeur's masterpiece "Migration" is their most luxurious track to date. With Miami Vice-percussion, a choir that seems to be singing underground and galloping guitars "Final say" is bound to dominate any tasteful dance floors in the year 2008. Truly wonderful!

"Anna Persson's whispery vocals are still a big part of the group's charm, but her words get outshone here by the jet-set production: massive 1980s synth-pop snares, skittering hi-hats, and touches of tropical percussion underlie a deft, trebly guitar riff and reverb-dripping synths" PITCHFORK

"Final say" is released on CD single on January 30. Until then, please enjoy this free MP3 download.

An explanation of "C-86" and or the "C-86 sound"

Could someone please offer me ?
"C-86" was the name of an influential cassette and album put out by the Brit music mag NME in 1986. It was modeled on their earlier cassette from 1981 called "C-81" which had introduced a number of young new bands like Orange Juice and Aztec Camera. C-86 had tracks by the Wedding Present, Soup Dragons, Mighty Lemon Drops, Pastels, Bodines, Primal Scream, Close Lobsters, other bands of a type called at the time "shambling" or "anorak" pop for their jangly-strummy guitars, hyper-melodic songs, and slightly-out-tune vocals, emphasizing all the classic points of the now-familiar indiepop style. There were also a number of songs in a rather different vein from other, crustier, Brit indie styles, like Stump and Half Man Half Biscuit and all that Ron Johnson stuff. But it was the indiepop songs like "This Boy Can Wait", "Therese", "Velocity Girl" and so on that struck deeply in the hearts of pathetic little unpopular wankers like us, and started something of a revolution that eventually turned into "twee" and Sarah and all the rest. When you see "C-86" as a reference point around here, that's what they're referring to - a particular style of pre-Sarah British indiepop that encompasses lots of bands that weren't on C-86 as well, like Talulah Gosh and so on.

Eux Autres - Live Show in San Diego

Eux Autres

December, 14 2007 at Kensington Club
w/ Red Pony Clock, Fishboy
4079 Adams Ave, San Diego, California 92116

Eux Autres, a Portland-based duo, plays pop music. The band consists of brother and sister Heather and Nicholas Larimer. Heather plays drums, Nicholas plays guitar, and they both sing. Practices frequently devolve into shoving matches.

Eux Autres write compact songs with sparse instrumentation. Their music has been unfairly described as “fun.” But while the surface of the songs might seem nonchalant, the lyrics offer skewed observations and fierce barbs. Most of their songs are about a) military history b) being "done wrong" or c) sports. Sadly, Eux Autres are the only people who notice this.

New CD, Cold City, released December 4 on Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records!
