Pop Drones: Episode 4
Another week, another show under the belt. Plenty of recent 7" bangers from the absolutely unstoppable Sacred Bones label, coupla' sweet hum-a-longs from the first batch of Hozac Hookup Klub 7"s, some nu-Gawth in the form of Blessure Grave and Spirit Photography, and one of my favorite tracks from the legendary Vancouver synth no-wavers, Channels 3 and 4. Anyone who took to loving Ch 3x4 should definitely pick up the new cassette release by Isolated Now Waves, which compiles pretty much everything they ever recorded. Limited to 42 copies! Snatch 'em up.
Also managed to sneak in some great "re-issues" of a couple blogged about (well, at least by me) CDRs from last year--we're talking about the two juggernauts that are Seattle's A Frames Climax Golden Twins and Wildildlife. The AFCGT LP is outta print, but you can still snatch up that Wildildlife. Very recommended. Check my original posts on AFCGT here, and Wildildlife here.
I'll also be playing the shit outta all that new Fresh and Onlys action until the band land here in Vancouver on June 21st. When these guys "blow-up" in the coming months, yr gonna kick yourself for missing their Vancouver debut.
