Another dead soldier. This one an actual soldier. Well known NY writer SURE was killed in Afganhistan. Will be missed.


Just thought this was cool to watch.

The Church

I've known a number of people over the years who've sworn by Australia's The Church, particularly live. Have to confess, I'm not too familiar with them but gave a listen to their new EP this morning (below). First few tracks are pretty solid. On tour after the new year, so I think I'll see if this "live" buzz is all it's cracked up to be.

The Black Angels - Young Men Dead

This song, by the Black Angels, has been in heavy rotation for me for the past month.

I knew I liked you Shanksy.

The Sniper at the Gates of Heaven

Been digging the Black Angels pretty heavily the last couple of weeks. Think Brooksy saw them a couple years ago, backing Roky Erickson. As much of the world prepares to celebrate Jesus' birthday next week, "Sniper at the Gates of Heaven" will be on heavy rotation at my place.

Tame Impala

Surprisingly our resident powerpop/hardcore head turned me on to these shoe-gazing Aussies. I dig the dreamy psych mixed with a Blue Cheer edge. haven't had time to dig into the LP....but what I hear is aces..
