A Rare Day

1. I'm not going to lie, my head's spinning a little. My brother just left town after a week of goodtimes. Just bought my first car barely 48 hours ago and felt the pressure of it as I signed on those numerous dotted lines. It's Feb 29th, a day only possible once every four years. I'm sitting on a mountain of advanced music that I can't write about yet (list below) and the only thing interesting that came out this week (Beach House), I just can't seem to get thrilled about. Ditto the upcoming releases by Clinic, Murder by Death, and Supergrass. I know. I think there's something wrong with me. I'm totally set on killer listening assignments for the next two weeks. I'm going to have to think of something to pass the time. Here's a start:

2. I just got the Sound Friends split 7'' in the mail, an extra copy thrown in by my buddy Archie. I mentioned this release here. I'm working on a contest of sorts whereby you'll have a chance to win that copy for yourself. If you don't have a record player, the beautiful packaging will make a great wall-piece. Because love isn't love til you give it away.

3. On a similar note, I got a big package from Epic Records last week with a bunch of posters, stickers, and a few of the new EP from Denmark's The Fashion, set to make their US debut at SXSW. I'll be announcing a little contest to win a package of Fashion shwag in the next few days. Giveaways R US!!

4. The Desert Island 10 will re-appear this week. Two LTL original mixes in the works and nearing completion: Blankets V.2 and Rocket Saws (Get it On).

5. Listen: Our #11 Song of 2006, but only truly fitting today.
