Why Mp3 Blogs and Pitchfork Make Music Suck

Pitchfork responded the next morning with a headline that would echo across the Internet: "Wavves Self-Destruct in Barcelona." Indie sites Brooklyn Vegan and Stereogum pounced on the story, and their reader comment sections quickly turned rancid.

"happy it didnt take longer for everyone to realize this band sucks," said one commenter on Brooklyn Vegan

From article on Wavves

It's all about the "next big thing" and then "how to take down the next big thing"... I don't know which is worse.

TV Montage Song of the Week: "Kingdom of Rain"

Not great TV but I saw this on "Lie to Me" and had to share... missed it the first time in 2007. This is Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees) singing. The band is Soulsavers.

I'm gonna punch all your blood out

Greetings, reader.

Here's some stuff you oughta want or oughta want to know:

- WFMU posts 70's rock stars and celeb's anti drug commercials. These will certainly fill out those mix tapes.

- is a cool vinyl blog - the mod is currently on a massive road trip to visit stores that sell vinyl. Give them gas or sandviches if you see them.

- I've been delisted from Hype Machine for lack of activity. I feel free.

Free Free Jazz. Made in Japan. And America.

You hate free jazz so do not download this. But I've loved Chris Corsano since he played with Ben Chasney on that Six Organs record. Here he's teamed with some free flowing 65YO alto sax player and a double bass.

The shit gets really intense about seven minutes in so let it build on ya. Via Brainwashed.

"Friendly Pants" Akira Sakata and Chikamorachi - buy it or dl it here if my direct link doesn't work.

O Sweet Mama... It's the Pens

I break radio silence for one of the few tracks these days worth breaking radio silence for. I found these young aspiring hoodlums out in my backyard throwing shit around, smoking reefer, breaking my swingset and shoving the sandbox dirt up their hoo-has. The cats are also missing.

Their myspace ID is "penispenispenis" and Rupert Murdoch regularily logs in just to see if its true.

"Networking" is glee for kids without glee.

"Networking" - Pens

Buy it here and listen to the title track of their crayoned masterpiece.

Note for parents: Coke Machine Glow doesn't get it.
