grand national finally saw a stateside release for kicking the national habit yesterday. expecting good things for them in 2006, they've already had huge success in the uk and throughout europe. i'm especially excited to catch them when they open for hot chip on the 11th
grand national - peanut dreams
well, i guess it's time to talk about destroyer.
i'm not going to jump into the already overcrowded critical discussion of destroyer, i'm just gonna say that "3000 flowers" transitions nicely into devendra banhart's "now that i know" in my itunes library. let's leave it at that.

vice records has picked up another nice addition to their tidy little catalog - electro-stompers justice. best known for their take on simian's "never be alone again" - which, for a while, was seemingly a required inclusion on any and all mix cds - but their new stuff is absolute fucking craziness. sort of what i imagine t. raumschmiere would be like if he was a little bit squelchier.
justice - waters of nazareth

and why not:
