I'll Hit The Breaks By Yppah

If you like the instrumental goodness of Low Scores, you might like this post.

Joe Corrales is Yppah, and Yppah is from Houston, TX. He mixes guitars + keyboards + loops (sampled from real drums) to create mid to downtempo jazz/electronic/indie soundscapes. Way back in 2006, he put out You Are Beautiful At All Times.

Yppah says: "with you are beautiful at all times i was trying to combine all my influences plus the mood i had been in that past year i was writing it."

Take a listen...

LIVE: Utilitarian By Spoon

Today I bring you a live Spoon recording from earlier this month at Prospect Park Bandshell that showed up recently on archive dot org. They played a total of 22 tracks, 2 of which were covers. Unfortunately, Spoon did not play anything off Telephono.

Quick Aside: how long until Spoon tours playing Telephono in it's entirety??? Hmmm, if they did take part in the trend of playing classic albums what album WOULD they play?

Anyway, they did play an oldie off of A Series Of Sneaks. Excellent.

Downloadable: "Utilitarian (Live)" ( mp3)

We Multiply By AIDS Wolf

According to Ye Olde Wikipedia:

The noise rock band, AIDS Wolf "didn’t come up with AIDS Wolf as a concept. The idea has been floating around in the public psyche for a while. In urban legend, wolves transmit AIDS instead of rabies; in depressing college towns, street gangs spray-paint ‘AIDS Wolf’ on the side of buildings." To find out what they did to this concept, click on the links below.
