Amongst Friends By Oxford Collapse

Oxford Collapse are the kings of that 80's college rock pre-"alternative" pre-"indie" sound. If you don't believe me, listen to their 2006 song "Please Visit Your National Parks" (sub pop mp3).

I love that sound. Love it.

Anyway, as reported over at p'fork, they have a new short player coming out next month entitled, Hann-Byrd EP.

Downloadable: "Amongst Friends" (mp3)

Oh yeah, they like ponies:

BONUS oldie, but a goodie: "Back In The Com Again" (mp3)

- P'fork points out there's a new Wolf Parade mp3 over @ the myspace... here. Listen: "Language City" ( mp3). Speaking of p'fork, they have the yucky yet compelling animated myspace vid for Man Man's "Mister Jung Stuffed"... here. You can also watch a much higher quality version of it @ Arthur Jones' web presence... here.

- Rock Math! Calvin Johnson + Doug Martsch = Halo Benders. More about that @ Pukekos... here.

- Get a free track of from the band Indian Jewelry (who have "never heard" of Jesus & Mary Chain) @ The 'Gum Drop... here.

- Electronic indie popper Evan Voytas wants you to heard this and this and this:
"Never My Love" (mp3)
"The Yellow World Of '83" (mp3)
"We'd Be Good Together" (mp3)

Evan looks like this:

- NOOOOO.... Possibly the best damn covers blog, Copy, Right? is calling it quits. Digging around here before the mass delete.

- Red Beard is giving away their Steed EP... here. FYI... It is produced by David Obuchowski of nycindiemetalheads Goes Cube. Listen to a song with a name not a number: "Red Beard's Last Song" (mp3). MMmmm, Crunchy.

- Have you heard that new Mates Of State yet? Listen: "My Only Offer" (mp3). It's married duo-tastic.
