Yeah I'm still around. My filehost is crapping out on me, I'm trying to figure out how to evolve ... stay tuned.

Two new ones from Indian Jewelry's upcoming "Free Gold!" Sounds like they let a little light in ... less industrial grind, more swirling guitar sunshine. Soak it up.

Indian Jewelry - "Swans"

Indian Jewelry - "Temporary Famine Ship"

Ya Ho Wa 13 @ Knitting Factory April 8 with No Neck and others, looks to be pretty epic. (Sick poster btw.) Check that first link for some wild sounds from the family.

SF / Oakland popsikers release a new disc into the wild.

No Doctors - "Invisible Clopes"

No Doctors - "Tuning Th' Sundial"

Andy Votel collabs with Far Out Recordings to comb the vaults of Brazil's RGE and Som Livre labels for a sunkissed mastermix -- Brazilika: Subtropical Sunstroke Psych-Out Vol. 1. This is the disc's first track, starting w/ "Modulo Lunar" by Os Brazoes and then off into space ...

Andy Votel - "Brazilika [excerpt]"

"Reality is a dangerous place ... hope this next trip is a good one ... "


The Vamps

The Vamps, Disco Blood (Building 1977)
Awesomely campy electronic horror-disco from Brazil. Beginning of "Dancin Dancin" sounds like a lost Glass Candy track.

The Vamps - "Dancin Dancin (Disco Mix)"

The Vamps - "Oba Oba Macumba"

El Guincho

El Guincho - "Kalise"

Other Music just announced a not-to-be-missed free show -- Barcelona's El Guincho on March 18 in the back room at Union Pool. He's got every track from Alegranza! streaming on myspace, or check out this "influences" mix he made for The Fader. Stoked for this show, should be super fun.
