The best post at Said the Gramophone. Ever. Little kids rapping paired with Okkervil River (featuring Daniel Johnston). Need I say more?
"WICKED GOTHIC shizz" (read: Bauhaus/Love & Rockets/Peter Murphy solo) at Sugartown.
Polloxniner has new goodness from The Rapture.
The new Lansing-Dreiden album, The Dividing Island, is phenominal. Get tracks at Badminton Stamps and Silence is a Rhythm Too.
Cory Brown has the best taste ever, and no he didn't pay me to say that! (Yes, that's totally a reference to the interminable debates re: label influence on bloggers raging on elbo.ws...) Check out the lastest additions to the Absolutely Kosher family, Sunset Rubdown (talented AND cute!!), at Gorilla vs. Bear.
Plus: Recent Austin transplant, (smog)'s Bill Callahan, likes Shearwater and Weird Weeds. We like them too. Speaking of, everyone picked up a copy of Shearwater's Palo Santo yesterday, right? RIGHT? Okay, good.
