Consider CLICKing
- I gots to agree with heartonastick -- What If Someone Is Watching Their TV? by Screaming Females "was the best album from last year that no one was listening to." More about that... here. Watch The Screaming Females play: "Theme Song" (archive.org punkcast mp4)

- The latest Contrast Podcast is "the ninth installment of Musicians introduce their own songs" (cp mp3). Track list and deets... here.

- Two new Vivian Girls songs. One is at MOKB (here) AND one is at Gorilla Vs. Bear (here).

- Mr. Beck Hanson was interviewed on NPR the other day. He states that he really doesn't rap, because "it doesn't come from hip-hop." He goes on "I used to hang out with a lot of poets and people who did spoken word. So I think I thought my rap — quote 'rap' — songs were coming from that." Listen/Read... here.

- Check out "Rosemary, Etc." by Zookeeper @ daytrotter... here. I like it when his voice breaks.

So "two turntables and a microphone" comes from poetry and/or spoken word?
