Tijuana Panthers – Wayne Interest (Create/Control)

Tijuana Panthers – Wayne Interest (Create/Control)

Funny what slips through your fingers and out of your head, eh? Last summer I reviewed Tijuana Panthers’ Semi-Sweet for Gold Flake Paint, but must confess that I hadn’t revisited it at all this year.

Iceage – New Brigade (What’s Your Rupture?)

Iceage have the wisdom to be brief: what they evoke is too much to bear for too long.

Song of the day – 363: Supercluster (a love song to Athens GA, part one)
