That last one knocked my alignment out

The Rumble Strips have posted two new songs over at their site...sweet sounds of ska influenced music there...

Rumble Strips - 4 walls
Rumble Strips - My Oh My

It's amazing how easily I'm influenced by those horns...ska runs deep in these veins.

Their site is being revamped, so head over to their myspace page for more music and videos. They just signed a record deal with Fallout/Island and our working on their next album - due for release next year. But there's an EP on the way (Nov. 20th) and you can download a track from it, "Oh Creole," from their myspace page.

Here's their video for No Soul:

just a few

If you're at all a Pernice Bros. fan, head over to their site and pre-order their new release to get a limited edition, hand made CD of demo versions and alternate'll cost you $20 for the whole kiteen-caboodle. They're also streaming a few tracks off the new album (and others) for your listening pleasure.

Sweeter than Sweet!

How great is it when one of your favorite artists remixes another of your favorites? Doesn't get much better than that, does it?

Here's Y.A.C.H.T remixing Architecture in Helsinki...

Archictecture In Helsinki - Nevereverdid (YACHT REMIX)

I'm not going to direct link 'em both, hit his site to get the other one. It's a remix of Do the Whirlwind...

RUN! Quick!

Bad doggie!

So I've been lax, lately, and readership falls...

But something hit my inbox today that made me want to post:

Kama Aina - Hotaru

What do I know? Not's the feed, though:

Club Kama Aina is the fifth album from the talented japanese soloartist Kama Aina and it is a true pleasure to announce that it will be released November 6th in all of Europe on the Efterklang driven label Rumraket (other artists include Erik Levander, Grizzly Bear and Cacoy). The new album is mainly recorded in Tokyo and Glasgow and it features guest appearances by such lovely Scottish luminaries as Bill Wells, Isobel Campbell and The Pastels.

Takuji Aoyagi is the man behind Kama Aina, he lives in Tokyo where he, together with Maher Shalal Hash Baz and Tenniscoats, is one of the main figures in the gleaming Japanese scene of innocent, DIY and heartbreaking folk-pop. Kama Aina┬┤s contribution to the scene is an organic and harmonic, but yet peculiar and indefinable form of music.

Check out his label over here.

See? All PR isn't bad!

We're not in Kansas, anymore...

Just found my favorite Wolfgang Press video:

Still makes me laugh...
