Bryan Ferry -- Jealous Guy
Roxy Music -- Dance Away
And goodness me, how deliciously loud and rowdy and kinda dirty are Saddle Creek's Ladyfinger (NE)? This band makes big, BIG, BIG rock'n'roll that's smart, just the way we like it. And hey, is having 'lady' in your name, like, the new 'wolf'? Especially if you're a bunch of dudes from the Midwest? (Bethanne over at Clever Titles also likes Ladyfinger (NE) -- really, really likes them...) Their debut full-length, Heavy Hands, is out on Sept. 26.
Ladyfinger (NE) -- Sea Legs
Ladyfinger (NE) -- Diet Smoke
And, because we really, really like you, a lovely Midlake b-side...
Midlake -- Marion
Which reminds me, speaking of Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music and b-sides, I finally got my hands on Electrelane's Singles, B-Sides, & Live album, out next week on Too Pure.
Electrelane -- More Than This (live)
Electrelane -- I'm On Fire
And for your weekend dancing needs, some disco house with big, BIG, BIG synths. From what I can see on the Internets, the limited 12" of this is super hard to come by, so thanks to the little vinyl rippers out there in the aether for providing it:
Lindstrom -- The Contemporary Fix (Serious Syntoms Remix)
This is the busiest weekend we've had in a long time -- shows Friday (Final Fantasy), Saturday (Get Him Eat Him), and Sunday (Okkervil River). I suppose we might see you out and about, then? Good!
Oh, one last thing: John Peel's son Tom Ravenscroft debuts his new music podcast SlashMusic for Channel 4's new venture, 4Radio, next week. Glad to see that whole English primogeniture thing working, I suppose. He sounds quite sweet, actually.
