goldfish need music too. this one's taste is ultra-refined. only the best for the fattest fish around.

  here and there
i'm back to the job grind, and so the blog suffers. but do check out the cool stuff happening and a'happenin:

  • Pitchfork is at it again with inappropriate reviews, this time on Anathallo's Floating World, here. i like these guys a lot, and i've been waiting to do a review of them until we start profiling for Lollapalooza. i won't bother to tell you what i think of the painfully low 2.7, but i'll direct you to GvB and IGIF for similar opinions.

  • yesterday Largehearted Boy made a really decent and comprehensive list of everything that came out today. it's pretty amazing. i know alex is pumped for Every Move A Picture, and i'm personally stoked for The Format. the two most obviously buzz-worthy are Sufjan Stevens's The Avalanche and Thom Yorke's The Eraser (no links necessary, seriously). i would attempt to say something clever here, but they've had their posts and i already have a favorite "funny post," by Catbirdseat, here.

  • do go indulge marathonpacks in his first-ever podcast while we sit around and figure out if we should do the same.

  • sometimes i close the curtains, light incense, and do little chants in full lotus position to thank Buddha for Said the Gramophone. try on this post and see what i mean.

  • check out Skatterbrain's staggeringly long interview with John Patterson of The Grates. very good, and he uses the myspace survey thing. nice touch, kitschy-cool.

  • i rarely link to fluxblog, and since there is absolutely no reason for that, i thought i would direct you to Matthew's post on Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd, who died Friday. sad as hell, and this one is well-done.

  • i'm kind of just getting around to completely falling in love with Boat, and i'm lucky because their album actually dropped today. you should expect a post on them soon. in the meantime, you can download all four songs on their myspace (which is what i linked you to), and you can read all about them here. or you can wait until i sell them to you. they're very good.

    that's all.. for now.. yep. woo, tired.
