What Godzilla Said to God When His Name Wasn't Found in the Book of Life
American Music Club have given their website a shiny new makeover. They’ve also released details of a new compilation of singles, demos and b-sides cleverly titled 1984-1995 coming out March 1. It’s only available on their website and at shows and is going to be a very limited edition. I think there’s enough material on it that I don’t have to make a purchase worthwhile. They’re doing a small US tour in March that’s hitting major cities only, but will hopefully be touring the new record a little more throughly. I’m still remembering how amazing Mark Eitzel’s way too short set opening for Low a few years ago was. I get tingly at the notion of a full AMC show. Tingly.
Six By Seven have pushed back the release of their new album as they’ve gotten Dave Fridmann of Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev fame (amongst countless others) to mix the record. Fridmann worked with the band previously, remixing “Candlelight” for the EP of the same name. That single also had another Fridmann connection, featuring a cover of Mercury Rev’s “Young Man’s Stride”. Which, I might add, I have been desperately seeking for some time now. If you’ve got it…
Of The Record has posted mp3s of a Pernice Brothers show in London at the Borderline. Exact date unknown, but it’s from just before the release of The World Won’t End. Plus: Sound quality is really good. Minus: No “7:30”. There’s also a recent Quasi show up for grabs.
Finally, some confirmation of something I’ve suspected for a while now – The writers of 24 have no idea what they’re doing. This comforts me for some reason.
