I've got two suggestions for you all today. The first, you might have heard of, but the second, I doubt you have. The Most Serene Republic were named Spin's Band of the Day. Really, really good band, you all need to check them out, they're getting a lot of comparisons to Broken Social Scene and Death Cab for Cutie, but although I love both of those bands, I wouldn't quite pin them down to that. Nonetheless, they are DEFINITELY worth listening to. Their entire album is streaming on their website. Take a listen, you won't be disappointed.http://www.arts-crafts.ca/themostserenerepublic/index2.html
Also, I found this great band, Blanks, from Cambridge, Massachusetts. A lot of fun to listen to. sounds like a mix between the talking heads, devo, bloc party (more in the feeling of urgency and post-punk rhythms), and, most importantly, crack. They don't have an album out yet, but are recording one, and they have some songs available to listen to on the net. You can find them at http://www.loveromp.com/
hey you all,
i've probably told a lot of you about this band, but these guys are so good that i don't think anyone should miss out. it's a band from cali called 20 minute loop. i found this out of an article on pitchfork that pretty much accurately describes them.
"20 Minute Loop is one of the more refreshing musical experiences I've had in months and months... say you've got XTC. Now subtract the TC, and pair the remainder of John Doe and Exene Cervenka with J. Robbins in a six-by-six cell haunted by Frank Black's muse, with only a Radiohead CD, a Flannery O'Connor novel, and occasional visits from the members of Seely to break the psychosis."
please please please check these guys out. you won't be dissapointed.http://www.myspace.com/20minuteloop
you know, there are times when i wish i was 18. this is one of those times. it's a reality web show where the contestants work in the music industry, finding new talent, for the top prize: starting their own label under Warner Records. I am fucking jealous.
if anyone is fortunate enough to be able to apply, here's the link. You have to be over 18 and can't be in school (you have to go to new york for six weeks in late august.)
for god's sake, the intro music is louis the fucking XIV.http://music.channel.aol.com/feature/the_biz
hate to plug, but i thought you all might want to check it out.
i would just like to inform everyone that elliott smith's birthday (would be) 12 days from now. so i thought (this applies to elliott fans only) that it'd be cool if everyone made a mixtape of elliott smith/ heatmiser songs and posted the tracklisting on this journal the day of his b-day. we'll vote on the best or something... just a cool idea.
and everyone definitely needs to pick up the kings of convenience cd.
