Another Moment

Tanya Donelly’s third solo album Whiskey Tango Ghost is coming out in late July, if all goes according to plan, with a late summer tour to follow. Fort Apache has a tracklisting of the new record.

Another year, another Guided By Voices album. Half Smiles of the Decomposed is out August 24 on Matador. Possible tracklisting here. As with all things Bob, expect the album title and tracklisting to change several dozen times more before release.

Yep Roc has some unreleased tracks from the sessions that yielded The Minus 5’s Down With Wilco album last year. It’s one of five extra songs that will appear on an EP included with the vinyl release of that album June 1. I never really got into this record – it was alright, but it never clicked for me. Pretty much a case of the whole not equalling up to the sum of its parts or some such nonsense. It’s pleasant and clever and all, but there’s not that alchemical spark. I’d trade fifty discs of this for just one more Golden Smog record. You can download an mp3 of one of the unreleased tracks, “Formerly Hail Centurion”, here.

Get yer full-length, full-size Spider-Man 2 trailer while it’s still fresh. Which should be another thirty minutes or so.

It hasn’t quite sunk in that I have today off – this long weekend totally snuck up on me, but I’m not totally unprepared. I’ve got some movies to watch, some books to read, some mushy foods to eat. Doin’ alright.

    my thought is exactly the opposite on the minus 5…i thought that Down with wilco had something really amazing that just kept the songs in my head for days…and in the reverse, golden smog never showed me its spark…
