‘Trouble in the Palace’ by Elizabeth HarperFound this one first on Angular’s “Rip Off Your Labels” compilation while I was on a huge Long Blondes kick. Folk-pop with lilting vocals, perfect for wet autumn days.

New young band new discovery to me that I think I quite like. The Paperhead. Nice 60s motorik psyche vibes.

"Pictures of Her Demise," the A-side to the Trouble in Mind released 7" from the Paperhead.

Once you get past the hyper-speed bass line lifted from Stealer’s Wheel, you should find quite a few madcaps laughing along with this psych-jangle 60s pastiche. Unlikely that this energy could hold up over a full album side; a cult 7” seems about right.

‘Mark and John (Bring on the Glitter Kids)’ by The Secret HistoryI’d never seen this live studio version before, but “Bring on the Glitter Kids” will always be my #1 pick from The Secret History.

My municipal government at work — trying to read the water meter about three weeks before the entire building is torn down (and 8-9 months after it was vacated). The Shannon Pot has relocated; 5Pointz isn’t so lucky.

As I noted at the time for a potential (but most likely unpublished) blog entry, “dark, grinding waves of distortion. Catharthis from something you didn’t know was holding you back.” Thank you for sharing your sonic sculptures with us. RIP.

Commiserations - Something For Nothing

New UK group with a couple of gigs and one officially interneted song under their belt. Featuring members of Beards, Sissy Hex, and Pifco. One of those members is beatmaker Daria Ramone, also responsible for the solo electronic/hip-hop/grime project 1-800-LIPSTICK.

Song is up there. Play button. Sounds like good. Promising. The promise of more good songs in the song which is good, up there. OK. Take care of yourself.

Co-sign — primal screeching thumping goodness all around. A “Kill Yr Idols” for the Twenty-Teens?

MTA to Greenpoint, LIC: “Drop dead.”
