Lifeguards “Paradise Is Not So Bad”
from Waving at the Astronauts (Guided By Voices 2011) N —Another Robert Pollard joint, available for download or corporeal purchase starting Feb. 15. And Bob, if you're reading this, feel free to use "Corporeal Purchase" as a song title.
from Antics (Matador 2004) —Following Tokyo Police Club around the country (and I can't say I blame them), Interpol hits the Pageant on Friday.
Destroyer “Suicide Demo for Kara Walker”
from Kaputt (Merge 2011) N —Dan Bejar's voice and attitude still bug me somewhat, but damned if I don't love the SOUND of this new album. James Christopher Monger (allmusic.com) says it all for me with the phrase "producing the soundtrack for a discotheque with a capacity of one"
Bad Brains “She's Calling You”
from I Against I (SST 1986) —On which Dr. Know sounds a lot like Eddie Van Halen...and after which the band's Lead Singer Problem soon began. Coincidence?
Sick of Sarah “Kiss Me”
from 2205 (Adamant Records 2011) N —Playing Cicero's March 9. Woulda made a perfect double-bill with Vanity Theft a week earlier, but it's also great that each band gets to headline...
