Walks, Sundays, waiting on winter, and relaxation
So yesterday I ended up having to blow off both getting new glasses and going to WIDR FM's "Barking Tuna Festival" which had Black Moth Super Rainbow as well as Mates Of State, and Daestro (I think he was there). I initially was supposed to interview School of 7 Bells (who have a really good album coming out I might add) but apparently there was a mis-communication about the fact that they were playing our festival?!? I had decided to skip going to see Wire in Chicago because of this (and financial issues and what have you) so I was pretty bummed when they revealed they weren't going to be coming.
I had decided to go to the festival any way because all my friends were going to be there... but then I realized I was REALLY broke this week and I didn't feel too well either. I tried to stay home and sleep but couldn't really... I can't sleep without my wife around. I'm serious. So instead I downloaded songs and just relaxed a little.
I got some good shit when I was downloading...

In other news I've gotta say the SVIIB album is quite good... I had to go to great lengths to procure it (as I thought I'd be interviewing them and ought to know what their new album sounded like) and I know for sure I'll buy it now when it comes out. I'm also downloading the new Michna album as we speak, and have been enjoy the remix album The Chap put out... expect to hear some of those remixes on 'The Spirit Of Albion'. I love me some Ghostly International records. Spectral Sound has been putting out new records as well... they've got loads of new stuff in their store... Matthew Dear released a the Robsoul Remixes and the "Pom Pom single. I can't wait to see what the Ghostly Box will be this Christmas! I'm such a Ghostly addict... I'm still trying to convince my wife to buy me the black Ghostly Nooka watch for Xmas hehehe...
Speaking of great output... Fools Gold and the reliable Scion A/V put out a Fools Gold Remixed album that's pretty dope. This track is proof that you should buy it!
Kid Sister- "Pro Nails (Rusko Remix)"
Ok, the wife and I are leaving the library now so that's all the posting for today. I'll try to get on more with this blog... anyone wanna help me post?
