sup, jiggas? hey you can buy and download sun kil moon’s april in either flac or 192 mp3 for $9.99 or $7.99, respectively via kozelek’s label caldo verde. it’s pretty damn great, i must add, but i dont know if i dig it as much as ghosts. i much prefer kozelek’s louder, more crazy horse inspired stuff, where as april is pretty mellow overall. you can also do the same for the retribution gospel choir record, which is freakin awesome.
i make no attempts to hide my sordid musical past, in fact i know kind of relish the fact that my tastes werent always so defined. with that being said, it was with great excitement that one of my absolute favorite songs from my early 20′s. it’s amazing the shit you have to listen to whilst in the car sans ipod. i even sat through a rush song, in order to hear this.

i always find it very interesting when a band/artist, who had seemingly made very little impact on societies musical conscience during their run, gets resurrected out of nowhere. no where in my brains would i have thought that dexter romweber and his band flat duo jets were going to gain some kind of resurgence, let alone a movie/documentary in their honor. during my time spent with a few of their records – most notably go go harlem baby, white trees and introducing – i attempted to get friends to hear what hear in the flat duo jets, but just about every one of the records was met with mostly utter distaste. their brand of twangy garage rock can be a hard pill to swallow, to be quite frank. but the rewards are rich if you can just stick with em. if you dig the likes of the black keys, white stripes, etc you may find the flat duo jets to your liking.
here are a few tracks off two headed cow which happens to be name of the documentary and of course the soundtrack too. chan marshall and jack white make appearances in the two headed cow.
here is part two of the dylan boot, you cant kill an idea. definitely check out “hard rain,” and probably my third favorite song of all time “knockin on heaven’s door.”
