this is a short film entitled thirty century man, but features how to be a werewolf off of mogwai’s yet to be released hardcore will never die, but you will – which is probably one of the greatest record titles ever. said record will be released via subpop on 2.15.11.
these guys/gals were just in town, and i missed em. they’re on tour w edward sharpe and play in ft lauderdale this fine evening and then finish up in miami tomorrow night. anyway, dig this song quite a bit, and if i may be a man for a moment, the tap dancer is one sexy creature, wow.. you can grab their self titled ep via their bandcamp site.

im so disappointed in myself at the moment cause i really havent given corin’s recently released 1,000 years a true proper listen as of yet. ive had it playing while the kids were screaming about something or other, but just havent been able to nail down a solitary moment to take it all in, uninterrupted. maybe this weekend. you can purchase it via kill rock stars, here. if you buy the lp, you get an immediate mp3 download of the record. so, why the hell not get the lp, that is if you have a functioning turntable.

if you’re anything like me, you dont visit stereogum. yeah i know he gets the “hottest and freshest” exclusives and yet i still dont visit. classic example, superchunk gave said site the exclusive on the video for “digging for something” off of majesty shredding – which i have to say is all kinds of awesome. why not captains dead, i ask? who’s been a bigger supporter? i dare you to find someone! maybe its cause he gets like 8 million hits a day and i get a measly 3500? eh whatever…. oh and majesty shredding is out tomorrow!

in case you havent seen it, here is the funny or die exclusive of ted leo’s video for “bottled in cork.” its eerily reminiscent, in around about sort of way, to yo la tengo’s “rock school” video for “sugar cube.” the only thing i dont care for about this is paul f. tompkins, who i cant stand, and think he’s a smug prick. i take this opinion strictly by his twitter persona, which may or may not all be an act, but i dont think it is. still great video, and song.

i dont listen to too much new hip hop, but when i do aesop rock usually has a hand in it, somehow. hail mary mallon is aesop and rob sonic and dj big wiz. this record is hot as fuck! prob the best hip hop record ive heard well probably since the last aesop record. […]
