Now The Bees Behind My Eyes Sing "Beware"

Seems my mp3 of the week has instigated a Tanya Donelly love-in over at Information Leafblower. Many fond rememberances of 1992 through 1994 when our dear Tanya, along with Juliana Hatfield, was the ubiquitous cute-as-a-button indie/alt pin-up girl. They certainly made a case for Boston as ground zero for really cool chicks, and are in no small part responsible for Beantown being my favorite American burg. For more Belly love, I direct you to Beestung has a whole slew of TD-related rare mp3s for filching, er, sharing.

The Broken Social Scene EP due out on the 23rd of March will be entitled The Bee Hives EP. I believe this is clearing out the cupboards from the You Forgot It In People sessions rather than recently recorded material. Scoop from Tiny Mix Tapes.

Pitchfork reports that long-MIA Virginians Sparklehorse are working on a new album with Dave Fridmann, due this Summer. Which is actually what they’ve been saying for the past year, so really, it’s not news at all. Boo.

Thanks to Glamorama for bringing to my attention that there’s a new Paul Auster novel out. Oracle Night is on my ‘seek out’ list now… though the library has no copies. Hrmm.

Sony Pictures is offering Spider-Man 2 skins for Blogger and Livejournal users. Do with that information what you will.

While getting breakfast this morning, I heard over the radio a horridly bland version of “Tracks Of My Tears” by some craptacular New Country tart. I think there should be a law that if you want to cover Motown, you need to pass some sort of test to gauge if you possess the requisite amount of soul to not make a mockery of it. If not, you should be dragged in the street and pelted with Boyz II Men CDs until dead. Examples must be made.

    I live in the boston area, and grew up with the Blake babies, Juliana Hatfield, belly, Letters to Cleo, Throwing muses and more… Its a great sound, and yes, the rock girls are all over the place.

    I was in Grad school in Boston in the late 80’s, and it was rock girl-a-rama. A wonderful place for a young man with a passion (for music, of xourse).
