Cycles in music are pretty reliable, in a fluid sort of way. Even in the age of digital distribution and low-cost production, the trends appear like they have been since the late Sixties. The Fader's all digital mag takes a look at the rise of Folk. F2: The New Folk addresses the music of The Entrance Band, Mariee Sioux, Michael Gira, Phosphorescent and Quinn Walker - emerging stars, not the established ones.
The Heaven Seventies just released a new Club single - "In Morning Light part 2", a new track featuring Chicago rappers Ill Legit, Wattson, and Kalico of Iridium. In the Morning Light (part 2) and 4 other versionsof the song all for your auditory lust.
The McBush/Pawnlin campaign is falling fast, but there's still time to have a laugh at their inadequecies. Here's a song by two of our good pals (and film cohorts) about Palin set to the Plain White T's massive hit from last summer. Take a listen.
Is it just us, or does fall make you feel warm in your privates? Maybe its the cider. Anyhoo, we think that along with all the consumer bogus decoration extravaganza at Target (ie: pumpkins, costumes, fake leaves, candles, sticks, hay, carriages, etc) that there is an easier way to escape a long days work and get toasty with some tunes. We were specifically looking for a song for our myspace page (we found The Weepies-always a nice somber choice) but along the way found this LIST. We just wanted to share it with you because it's sort of right on and sort of a thumbs up to Amazon for being cool for once. Don't forget to do these other fun things this fall.....
From behind the scenes looks (this is Part 1) at the making of her Oct. 7 release A Record in Two Parts: Elephants...Teeth Sinking into Heart, then a couple free tracks - ElephantsandSidedish Friend - to a show announcement for the Lakeshore Theater on October 1, Yamagata has really opened herself today. Lucky us.
