i always forget about this.
mental note: get in the habit of writing (blogging? typing? reviewing? ranting?) a bit more often.
on the subject of habits: quit smoking, quit chocolate, quit going to sleep at 4am.
a few musical lists to cap off my night:
RECENT RELEASE BUMMERS
1. Vampire Weekend (lo-fi indie pop ripping off...Paul Simon's Graceland....really?!).
2. She & Him (celebrity infiltration of indie culture, cutesy covers, kill me).
3. Steve Malkmus (he actually ROCKS on this recent album but he's still...boring).
4. Gnarls Barkley (biggest bummer for as there are no party tracks whatsoever. for the love of god just make another Crazy!).
5. Atlas Sound (love Deerhunter, but this is too calm).
RECENT RELEASE WINNERS
1. Mission of Burma reissues (i can't say anything that hasn't been said before about this awesome band but these Matador vinyl reissues are beautiful and come with a ton of extra cool shit).
2. Evangelista (Carla Bozulich, please marry me).
3. Baby Dee (tranny carnival freak harpist belting out torch songs in a freakish Antony way = totally my style).
4. Scott Walker vinyl reissues (they look great, they sound superb, and i'm glad they came out because i've always been to cheap to shell out the $$$ for originals).
5. Coathangers (the new single is "totes" rad, post-riot grrrl sleazepunk at its finest!).
