hey there. whatcha wearin? word!? hope everyone had a splendid weeks end. mine was very short lived, but i gots 4 days off coming up starting on tuesday, but then work 10 days straight. oy! i would almost work 22 days in a row and get my 8 days of time off all in a row, but thats just me.
i get a lot of emails asking where shit is, not like “where are my keys” or “where are those johansson nudes you keep talkin bout,” but shit like “where is the rest of the replacements show, i cant find it.” ok, here’s how this works. at the bottom of every post are these things called “tags” and they are your friends. say you want to find more posts about bob dylan. all you do is click the bob dylan tag and it will take you to everything found here that is tagged “bob dylan.” for example, click here. that should take you to all said posts regarding bob dylan. pretty simple. got it? i should sticky this right next to the safari warning that nobody reads. fuckers….
nashvillian, josh preston is a dude that if given the opportunity could win over a lot of hearts, or so me thinks. he reminds me quite a bit of ron sexsmith, you know nothing flashy, just talented guy with great vocals and the songwriting to match. which sadly, doesnt go very far nowadays. still peeps, like myself, that dig the unreleased adams stuff like “memphis” aka “drunk and fucked up,” “gimme sunshine,” “idiots rule the world,” etc should definitely find something to dig in mr preston.
in anticipation of his upcoming lp, exit sounds, he is offering up a 4 track ep, for free, for your downloading pleasure which is entitled the complex wooden heart. exit sounds is out on 5.13 and available via me an the machine.

i cant vouch for anything other than this track mix thingy, but considering the company that alaska in winter is keeping i have a good feeling about em. alaska in winter is art student and apparently musician, brandon bethancourt, who spent a semester in alaska recording the songs that would eventually make it on dance party in the balkans. upon returning home to new mexico he teamed up with wunderkind zach condon of beirut, heather trost of a hawk and a hacksaw, and a host of others, or so the press release states to put the finishing touches on dance party in the balkans. the mix sounds almost exactly as what the title of the record implies.
dance party in the balkans was released last year in the uk, but was finally released in the u.s. on 3.25.
do you guys/gals dig saul williams? i still really cant decide. i kinda want to, but on the other hand i’m just kinda, meh. i downloaded and actually paid for the reznor produced niggy tardust, but never find a good time or i guess the right mood to listen to it. for the unitiated here be a track from said niggy tardust.

here is an interesting pumpkins boot which goes by the name of reel time sessions. this is circa 1989 and i have very little information on it other than what is found here. this is a whopping 35 tracks as opposed to the 12 tracks i usually have found circulating under this title.
