The more things change
vs Not many people talk about the band Midlake anymore. Their popularity peaked around the release of their 2010 album The Courage of Others band as far as most Atlantans were concerned. Maybe they’re big in Texas, where they’re from. They first made their mark in Europe, signing with a European record label, and playing Wintercase in Italy, End of the Road Festival in England,...

Just heard about these folks like 20 sec. ago. I really dig the sound. Kind of like Pavement mixed with The Sea and Cake. They’re doing pay what you can on their bandcamp Thanks Hell Hole Entrance for the hot tip on some fresh sounds. Listen to them either at the links above or here.
So my homey Jordan just hit me up to play some drums with this band called Hyperfauna. I’ve been playing drums for like a year total, and I’ve only ever lived with a kit for a couple of months really, but damn if I’m hard pressed to think of a more fun way to spend my time. The show is at Party Expo in Brooklyn on Feb. 9. Y’all come down now y’hear!
I imagine that I’m ridiculously late to the party when it comes to this part-Cherokee, part-Atlanta rapper, but I can’t stop listening to this song. My friend Corey prefers this one with Big KRIT. Honestly the hardest part of listening to him has been reminding me that I’m not listening to Mickey Avalon.

Respect Where It's Due
A lot a lot a lot of people have music blogs. Most of them are better than mine. The most popular are probably Pitchfork and Stereogum. I’ve spent my time on a good many of them, such as Les Enfants Terrible, 20 Jazz Funk Greats, and Et Musique Pour Tous. I also have a special place in my heart for the king of Atlanta blogs Ohm Park and the 400 pound gorilla of NYC, Brooklyn Vegan. ...
My friend Brett’s band Fun Land Super Quest made the music for this cutesy pro-vegan puppet show.
Jamz n' Gemz
So today I just got my vinyl-to-mp3 turntable in that will convert all of my records into data. A few of them are rare, haven’t been made into CDs, or are hard to find online as an mp3. I think the first one will be Zoltan Kodaly’s String Quartets 1 & 2. There is a CD of it that you can buy on amazon for $18, but I can’t find them on youtube or isohunt, so that seems...
A little secret
I’ve been sitting with this website in my back pocket for a little while now. Nodata.tv is pretty phenomenal when it comes to leaks. Over the last few days I’ve copped the new 7” from Yuck, a remaster of Kraftwerk’s Computer world, and the latest installment of Madlib’s Medicine Show series. Clearly there’s something here for everyone. It would be a fun...
