Laurie Anderson - Oh Superman

Speaking of ms anderson yesterday i thought i'd put a link to the video for oh superman as there may be some who have not seen or maybe not heard the song. Both are great so much so that i listened to this song on repeat for a day which is something i'd recommend to all.

Ariel Pink - Kate I Wait

This song is catchy, very catchy and its by Ariel Pink and he is indeed waiting for Kate.
He looks and sounds a bit like a modern Laurie Anderson which is good.

No Age - Eraser

The Wire this month have basically said the album by No Age is crap and cites the fact that they design bandannas as indicative of this. While i'm not a fan of bandannas i think the albums ok, its a debut for fecks sake and theres some good tracks. Los Angeles psych skate punk it'll be HUGE!

Video for eraser - Watch IT!!!

Bands that should be allowed curate - No.5 - The Fall

For the past few years for some inexplicable reason Groove Armada are allowed to curate a festival which incidentally has the most annoying name for a festival ever - Lovebox. Curate may be too technical a word to describe this process, this years lineup in Dublin looks like they picked up a 3 year old copy of music comic nme and just picked whoever was on the front cover. Headlining Maximo Park , are you kidding, Gorillaz Soundsystem - what? and then a whole list of unknowns with one stupider name after the other Paolo Nutini, Sam Sparro and feckin' Kid Creole and the Coconuts. If more than 10 people actually attend this i would be surprised. As for Groove Armada thankfully they don't actually appear to be playing. Their popularity is something that continues to mystify me, they make insipid marketing music and they are called Groove Armada. Anyway I will suggest over the coming days the top 5 bands that should be allowed to curate a festival and if i pick a band that ATP have already used then so WHAT. At no.5 The Fall. It would be great, there could be a literary tent with Mark E reading from his autobiography and as for bands all you'd need would be all the ex members of The Fall and you'd have a full lineup.

Grandaddy - Where I'm Anymore

There's actual sun, shinig sun today but it feels like the summer never even started. A summer theme beams into loads of grandaddy's music and this video i think was their last ever and one of their best songs. The ending of him cycling of is good seeing as they that was it for them.

Efterklang Mirador

Efterklang are one of those bands that i knew if i bought the record i'd really like them but every time i'm in the record shop i see something different. One day. Anyway this is a mighty video and a good one to start TheDetritusTV with.
