The AV Club always does a great job with their interviews, getting people to talk about what inspires them in a way never comes off as pretentious. Good things (in fact, sometimes great things) have come from these interviews. Their recent interview with Kurt Vile, who’s becoming one of my favorite artists of late, turned me on to an awesome song by Bert Jansch called ‘Poison’. Read the rest of this entry »

Just a little quickie to get your Tuesday going right.
Its Edan’s Echo Party Mix and its Psych-Dance awesomeness has been spinning in my head for a while now.
Not to post anything, that is. So here we are. Back from our respective ‘reading breaks’ and ready to bring you all the goods. We’re just gonna dive right in with a ‘what you (may have) missed while we were gone’ post.

So with that being said my show-going/midday-procrastinating has been and will continue to be minimal for the rest of this week.

Jacques Greene never lets us see his face, but in this short teaser video for a cr0ss Canada tour he shows us how he builds a track live, bit by bit. If you like this, you should probably come to the LuckyMe showcase at Club Lambi this Friday and catch him live….(of course!).
I’m really proud of the work my Montreal compadres do on all the local news and show information. Unfortunately, as the lone Procrastinator trapped down here in the desolate Washington D.C area (note the capital P, because trust me, there’s quite a few regular procrastinators in the United States’ capital), I can’t really contribute the way the rest of the boys can. Instead, I attempt to make my mark through my (hopefully) clever writing, (probably not that) unique opinions, and over use of parentheses (funny, right?). Anyway, we’re looking to expand on some of the more original content in the weeks to come. Here’s a little taste of what we have to offer, in the form of an old piece Matty and I did on the inscrutable Hall and Oates. Read the rest of this entry »
For anyone feeling a bit tired/miffed at the end of a long (snowyy) week. Let the undulating rhythms and wonderful voice of Ami Koita cheer you up. FEEL the bassline in the last 10 seconds of the song. Such a sick tone.
