Pop Drones: Episode 3

Third show in and probably the least amount of nerves/dead air so far. Highlights include some of my favorite tracks from the second batch of Captured Tracks material (seriously can't get enough of The Bitters' 'Warrior'), my favorite track from the new Modern Creatures LP (front runner for my favorite local release in 2009), some nice jams from the last batch of Sacred Bones 7"s (Pink Noise...keep it comin'), and an excellent track from the Cometa Fever one-sided 12". Anyone who tuned in and thought they heard the Jesus and Mary Chain probably caught that Cometa Fever track. Thanks to the always amazing Mimaroglu site I snatched up one of the 112 copies that What The...? Records pressed of the Berlin via Italian male/female duo. Check the myspace link below to get an earful. I also jammed a track off the Fresh and Onlys debut LP, which just about has to be my favorite release of any genre from 2009. Locals should try Scratch or Dandelion to get a copy, or you will probably be able to nab from the band when they play Pat's Pub June 21st with thee mighty Sex Church. The next night they'll apparently be backing up Rodriguez when he plays Richards. That's it for this week...
