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.

Talking with the Majic Eyes of SF about doing a tape, so expect some unsettled bedroom-pop from that direction in the future. I am listening to Talk's Cheap, of course.

"The Electric Eels were the most anti-social badass motherfuckers to ever avoid killing someone."
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.

Caethua stuff arrived in the mail the other day and I couldn't be more pleased. The I May Be Gone For a Long, Long Time LP is really gorgeous. There's a Fursaxa track on the first Invisible Pyramid comp called "Chartreuse My Green" that has always floored me and Caethua sounds like a sparser, more grounded version of that. I also got the CDR combination of the Queenly Women Crowned and Uncrowned and The Pleasures of Manhood tapes which I might even like more. The Pleasures of Manhood starts with "I am Become My World" which I can't stop listening to. Saxwand is the label.

Nice words from Mr. Doug Mosurock over at Dusted about the Polyps 7":

The Polyps
Peixe 7”

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.

Jeff of the Honeys was playing me the hits at the Half and Half the other day, notably Picky Picnic, a severely demented Japanese group from the 80s. Really perverse in a way that's hard to put your finger on. They've got a tape and an LP over at the Mutant Sounds blog, both of which have got spot-on art. Other thing was Woo, which was super pleasant. English, early-90s, heavy Kraftwerk circa-"Ralf and Florian" and Durutti Column vibes. The album was "It's Cosy Inside."
