(there will be plenty of time for questions, just as soon as I’m finished with my speech)
Ever notice how government officials (and/or the New York Mets) try to bury stories that don’t entirely flatter themselves on Friday nights or weekends? No? GOOD, you’re just my kind of person! In the spirit of helpfulness (and perhaps acknowledging that every member of our constituency doesn’t read popular music blogs 75 times a day), we’d like to issue the following friendly reminders ;
a) On April 26, Merge (U.S.) and Wichita (UK) will be releasing the new Times New Viking album, ‘Dancer Equired’. We’ve heard it, and no matter what hyperbole our rec. biz pals are throwing around, it’s even better than whatever they’re saying. .
b) On Feb. 22, Jagjaguwar is issuing the 3rd album from The Cave Singers, ‘No Witch’. I’ve not heard this one (damn you, Web Sharrif!), but when we’re promised the new full-length exhibits “a ferocity and bite we’ve yet to see from the band”, you can be certain I’m getting my
rabies vaccination cash in order. Hope you do the same.
