Art Star By The Oranges Band

OK people, time get ready for a 2009 release. I am talking about the next Oranges Band album... The Oranges Band Are Invisible. It is going to be released in February next year.

The album sounds like this.

Downloadable: "Art Star" ( mp3)

It looks like this.

The Oranges Band Are Invisible

The Oranges Band presently consists of original members Roman Kuebler and Dave Voyles, plus there are two new faces rounding out the quartet on this recording... Doug Gillard (former GBV) and Pat Martin (of Never Enough).

Oh, and if you must have the album before it's official release, the band is doing a "limited edition pre-release" of the album. A hand assembled album package will be available at a few shows on the east coast in November and also through mail order after November 14th (specifics TK). One such show is at The Bell House in Brooklyn:

Saturday November 15, 2008
The Bell House (149 7th St.)
With A.C. Newman (of The New Pornographers), Bird of Youth

Hopefully, there will be mucho touring around the Metro NYC area in support of the new album next year.

VIDEO: This Note's For You By Neil Young And The Bluenotes

Below I embedded a vid I found on the new mtv-branded music video internet website. Julian Temple directed it and because it featured parodies of popular advertising campaigns it was temporarily banned by MTV. However this was not for long as it did win a "Best Video" VMA. Have I mentioned that this is Neil Young we are talking about.

Now, the one image in the video that perplexes me is when Joe Sixpack smacks the spokesmodel for Concession By Neil Young over the head. It just seems unnecessary. Homophobia was just very mainstream back in the late 80s, even for people making a countercultural point. Comparatively, pouring a softbeverage over the head of the flaming Michael Jackson impersonator, totally necessary.

Also, we have... say, this, and we just accept it. But you say: "they aren't getting me to drink their tasty yet extreme beverage by giving me a free mp3." Maybe not, but that's not the point. The point is the invasion of marketing into every fucking thing. But, I guess getting more kids to listen to Matt & Kim isn't a bad thing. Won't somebody please think about the children?

Anyway, enough rambling, Also...

Miami Ice By Icy Demons

I have to admit I didn't really quite like "Miami Ice" by chitown-proggers Icy Demons the first time I heard it. It just didn't grab me, but then the other day, it comes on the ol' ipod and I had take it out of my pocket to find out who it was. Now if you do not like this track right away, I implore you to download it and pop it into you mp3 library, because one day it may just blow your mind.

Traces Of Alignment By Skinner Pilot

So, I namechecked a Pioneer Valley 90's indie rock band the other day, thinking I should do a follow up post. You know what? There is surprisingly little info about Skinner Pilot on ye ole internets. I do know that Skinner Pilot featured Elizabeth Sharp and that she is now Ill Ease. Plus, she was an original member of New Radiant Storm King, and she helped name that band after a brand of radiator. Anyway, I friggin' love this track, and you will too.

Without any further ado, Skinner Pilot everyone...

The Broken Social Scene Minimix

I have here a minimix of Broken Social Scene. If you are seeing them tonight and you do not know these songs, there is probably something wrong with you. This is a little something to help you get psyched, that is unless you are a superfan in which case you certainly don't need my help. And if you are not a fan at all, perhaps you will give a listen and decide that you have misjudged these vistitors from the North. And if you are saying to yourself "Broken Social Who?"... scroll down right now and start listening.

My question for tonight is this: "Will this concert experience be any better than Apostle Of Hustle at Southpaw?" Because that show was friggin' amazing.

I'm not breaking any new ground here with this mix. Theses are songs that have been floating around the internets for a while now. I don't have any surreptitiously recorded tour demos or anything like that. Do enjoy them.

"Love And Mathematics" ( mp3)
"Alive In 85" ( mp3)
"Stars And Sons" ( mp3)
"Cause = Time" ( mp3)
"Ibi Dreams Of Pavement (A Better Day)" ( mp3)
"Canada Vs. America"( mp3)

STREAM: One Cross Apiece By Obits

So, you all know about Rick Froberg's new band the Obits, right? Well, their first single is coming out on December 8th, 2008 via Comedy Minus One. More deets are here.

The A-Side: "One Cross Apiece"
The B-Side: "Put It In Writing"

I can't say I love love the A-Side, as the studio seems to have muted the Obits energy a bit. I was picturing something more, well, rockin'. It may just be that my expectations were raised to ridiculous levels by the live stuff floating around the internets. I should probably knock my expectations down a bit. I suppose that riff is pretty kickass. Sorry there's no mp3, just a stream. Give it a listen.

Idiotheque (Radiohead Cover) By We Versus The Shark

Today, I have for you the latest We Versus The Shark cover. The song covered was originally played by a band from Oxfordshire. The cover is a slowed down thrashy recreation. And yes, there is a superfluous "h" in the title of the cover.

Downloadable: "Idiotheque (Radiohead Cover)" (quoteunquote mp3)

Streamable Original: "Idioteque (Live At APW)" (youtube)

FYI: We Versus The Shark is a posthardcore band from Athens. Radiohead is, well, Radiohead. There is quite a lot written about them -- 38,900,000 hits worth.

To The Stars! To The Night! By Le Loup

I saw Le Loup open last night for Stereolab. Even though they are down two band members (or was it three?) AND there were some issues with Sam's electronics, they pulled off a great show. It was much more rockin' than the recorded Le Loup, but hey that's fine with me.
