Busy busy busy at Eggy HQ. The first new Golden Hours release in literally years is just around the corner. 4 song tape of reverb'd-out fuzz pop. Out with the zucchini bread references, in with wobbly, White Light/White Heat guitar solos and beer-at-practice musicianship. Edition of one or two hundred, with a handful of CDRs going out to radio stations and "the press," as per usual.
Majic Eyes tape for February, Dragging an Ox 7" for early summer, possibly a rerecording of the Honeys' Brown Chicken Brown Cow.

I just came across this great article on the Electric Eels that Daniel DiMaggio of Home Blitz and Car Commercials wrote back in 2001, which I think makes him about 16 years old. It's impressively really spot on. It's also probably the only place you'll read Dave E's voice described as "undeniably cool." Additionally, the Electric Eels' own throbbing, HTML-headache of a blink-tagged website is not to be missed.

Wothwhile little bedroom pop single by a Providence artist not too stoked on organization – it took a while to figure out what this record even was, or who it was made by. Fortunately, the Internet came through. A-side is some bouncy Elephant 6 type pop with the distortion cranked up; B-side shows a more sensitive, late-night brooding feel to it, with a prominent Xpressway bent – strongly reminiscent of the Jefferies Bros. or Pumice. A solid effort from one Raf Spielman and guests, aiming to keep it pure. 400 copies, collage sleeve, hand-stamped labels.
