Three Hopeful Thoughts
The day actually started with the mp3 of Velocity Girl covering New Order’s “Your Silent Face” that 517 generously gave me. Soooo good. Look for that one as mp3 of the week very soon. Like, Saturday, probably.
The long long long awaited (by me, anyway) and oft-postponed new record from Wheat, Per Second Per Second Per Second Every Second FINALLY has a release date in the first week of October, which by my calendar puts it at October 7. While based on past history I wouldn’t make plans to camp out in front of a record store yet, that’s a far firmer street date than the album has had in its long history. While I still have some fears about what effect label machinations have had on the finished product, advance reviews from some trusted sources have been overwhelmingly positive. They’re hoping to do some touring in late summer – Here’s hoping.
And finally, congratulations to Joe Pernice and Laura Stein on their upcoming wedding. They will be tying the knot here in Toronto right around the date of the July 22 Pernice Brothers show. Ain’t nothing more romantic than SARS.
