NEXT WEEK: Play Miss D for Me
"Just Another Thing To Dust" and "Unavailable" from Can't Go Back (Gnomonsong, 2007) Clealry this guy grew up on Fruity Pebbles, chickfactor and whatever the sequel to Teletubbies is called.
"Win Or Lose" and "Can't I Wonder" from You Are My Home (Important, 2006)
We didn't know this one existed until Uncle Nathan sent it to us.
"The Crowned" and "Wind Through The Walls/Blackwood Gates" from Spirit (Acuarela, 2006)
Dreamy stuff from our friends in Madrid, where ham museums grace seemingly every street. Acuarela is simply the coolest label around.
"Murderer" and "Belarus" from Drums and Guns (Sub Pop, 2007)
Love 'em, can't get enough of 'em. Yes, the clicks and pops are on purpose.
"Bliss This Instance" and "Cool Sounds Are Here Again' from Well, Well, Well (O'Brothers, 2006)
We sure hope the latter constinues to be true, despite the lame fratboyosity o' their name. I guess "The Durex" was taken?
