Tell Balgeary, Balgury is Dead

Went to see a new-ish local act last night, Friday Morning’s Regret. Despite the emo-ish name, these guys actually trade in some very convincing Just a three-piece (acoustic guitar/harmonica, drums, bass) but the songs and arrangements are terrific. Certainly worth paying attention to.

October 7 continues to pull ahead in the race to be the day most replete with cool new releases. Add to the list the new Ted Leo & The Pharmacists EP, Tell Balgeary, Balgury is Dead. Full tracklisting and a preview mp3 are available at Lookout! Records’ website.

Spiritualized’s Fall tour to promote Amazing Grace has a stop in Toronto at the Opera House on October 19 with Soledad Brothers in tow. Even when he’s rocking out, as he’s supposed to be doing on the new record, Spaceman & Co. are pretty snoozy. And $31 a ticket? Nooooo.

I missed their CD release party a few weeks ago, but Metric give me another shot when they play the Horseshoe September 27 with Tangiers.

The new issue of Magnet is a 10th anniversary special, and takes a look back at the indie rock scene from 1993-2003. Check out that Pablo Honey-era shot of Radiohead on the cover! Nice hair, Thom!

Speaking of the ‘Head and weird-looking Thom Yorke, you can see the new, all CGI video for “Go To Sleep” here. And if you’re feeling inclined to eat up all your bandwidth, there’s many many many Radiohead b-sides, live tracks and rarities for download here. Like, LOTS. All in zip files. Grab ’em while you can. Link-o from El Boy-o Largeheart-o.
