Oh, hai. Ya caught me in a trance. That Angel Guts: Red Classroom LP is on my shortlist for best album of the year - if not the sexiest LP to also induce cold sweats at night and acute paranoia when crossing the street (dead serious, kids). So no fewer than three juicy Xiu Xiu cuts this month. What else? Lots of jangle for your buck with Chorusgirl, Cosines, and Luxembourg Signal; astonishing reissues of Family Fodder, Selda, and Woo; classical arrangements from Filmloom and C O L L E C T R E S S; genius sound engineers like Dissolved, The Fucked Up Beat, and whizz kid; and, oh yeah, that Future Islands thing. Plus, more wicked cuts from Athens, a sample of a sampler from most rad Scottish label Song, By Toad, and the best damn ZZ Top cover conceived thus far (from a dude who could dissect any song he pleases, Residents-style).
And yes - the supreme Jack Hayter recorded a four-song special (I lied in the recording) just for this show. Prepare for happiness.
