    Not Nothing - Download here
    • Fun, noisy, devil-may-care punk rock from this Brooklyn group. Their first full album.
    • You can hear tracks 1 ("Crystal") and 3 ("Egyptian Magician") on their Blogspot or MySpace
    • They have a few new non-album tracks up, too, including "Gotham Low Lifes", uploaded April 1st. There's also a track called "Scorpio" they uploaded to SoundCloud on Saturday, a Record Store Day exclusive!

Love this stuff. Instead of the album version, here's a live version of "Egyptian Magician" they uploaded last week. It was recorded "after too much whiskey and 4Loko", and it features members of Heavy Cream on backup vocals!

New Show on Monday

I haven't been able to post nearly as often this month due to a project at work that's taking all my time. But even though there's been a boatload of music hitting stores already this April, I haven't seen a lot to get excited about.

The Raveonettes
What little good noise there has been, however, you'll hear sampled right here on next Monday's 8-Tracks Fierce broadcast. We'll hear a track from The Raveonettes' new album and one from Crystal Stilts, too. Saturday is Record Store Day (*shrug*), and we'll hear a new track that stands above the crowd on that day. We'll also hear two bands from right here in Columbus that have a lot in common. Plus The Fresh & Onlys!

That's right here on 8-Tracks Fierce this coming Monday. Hope you can check it out.

Zodiacs is a Dream Project

Man, I've been crazy busy. Here's some nice new noise that came out this past week.

  • Zodiacs - "Faraway Friend" 7" (Captured Tracks)
  • "Faraway Friend" 7" - Order here
    • Not a real band per se, this is a studio project featuring friends of Captured Tracks. The track on this little piece of vinyl features Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls on vocals, with members of Woods, Blank Dogs and Crystal Stilts backing her up! You don't see something like this too often.
    • It's a very nice bit of sexy, lo-fi surf pop with back-up vocals that feel like a '50s beach horror flick.
    • Can't tell if there are any other tracks on this disc.
    • They're only making a thousand of these, and you have to buy $10 of stuff from Captured Tracks to get one. It's part of their 100th release celebration. This release is, in fact, CT-100.
    • I'm four days late on this already, so they may all be gone by now. Sorry.
The incomparable Dee Dee
But, of course, you can hear it here. Ah, the internet...
