So I went through a big stack of promos over the weekend (or maybe it was Thursday night, can't remember), and I don't know why I even bother, because the ones I liked were the ones I thought I'd like and the ones I'd never heard of contained no real pleasant surprises...
But damn, this new Archie Bronson Outfit album Coconuts is super awesome. I'll be reviewing it fairly soon. For now, this video of my favorite tracks:
Other faves, which I'm maybe or maybe not covering (probably not in most cases)
Sightings, City of Straw
Black Tambourine, S-T
The Do, A Mouthful (yeah i've had this for a couple of years, too, but apparently it's just coming out state-side)
Smoke Fairies, Ghosts
Also, exciting news (in the most likely pointless category). I'm trying to get an interview with Mark E. Smith who has somehow put out another really fantastic album called Our Future, Your Clutter...looks doubtful, cross your fingers for me.
