Stuff to read, things to see.

Hello, strangers. If you're sad about the less-frequent posting, I am sorry. It's just the way it goes. Mostly because I hate Blogger so, so much. But there's new stuff I've written here and here. It's about music in funny languages, but do not be afraid! Read it anyway...

Also, this flyer. Mark your calendars. RSVP on Facespace. Draw a circle around it on Google +. Whatever helps get your ass there. Thank you.

I DO want to...

Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.

Music Video - The Chase from The History of Pan!c on Vimeo.

Also - from his Facespace page: "In his youth, Pan!c grew up with a steady diet of techno and Morrissey, later championing Britpop at a series of local DJ gigs..." In other words the fact that I'm not best friends with this fellow yet is absolutely ludicrous.

Slacker Escapism

Local indie rockers Carradine have a new record coming out soon that's currently streaming on their Bandcamp page. Sloppy Pavement-esque goodness, just like us olden days people like it. They used the tag "1993" for a very good reason. Good call on that tag choice, guys. The album title is In Case I Lose It, We Both Have It which is certain to be one of my favorite album titles of the year...

Record release show at The Atlas Bar in Hamtramck is Saturday July 16th. They describe the album as being "pressed on some tasty vinyl by Detroit's own Archer Pressing." I hope this means that it is a color other than black. Or that you can actually eat it. Or both.
