It includes a whopping 25 songs, a few from local artists like Baby Birds Don't Drink Milk and C V L T S, but mostly national ones, including Cloud Nothings and Julian Lynch. Lots of weirdo ambient tracks, but some rippers, too. Tracklist after the jump.

A teaser track from the upcoming Baby Birds album

The band will be releasing Skeletor on cassette (SOLID MELTS) and CD (Worker Bee Records), and in the meantime they've dropped a new, but as yet unmastered, song on us from the album. Check it out below. Love the moment 1:07 in, when that calm, distant electric guitar and the vocal harmony catch up to the reverb and fuzz.    

Baby Birds are playing this coming Tuesday in Lawrence, at 8th Street Taproom.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's new song

Posted By on Tue, Jun 15, 2010 at 1:43 PM

An email address is a small price to pay to hear the new track from Springfield's Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. The band's third release, Let It Sway, is out on Polyvinyl on August 17, and it's produced by Death Cab for Cutie's guitarist, Chris Walla. At first glance, the song seems like a tighter, more focused take on the band's sweet, comfortable indie pop (which feels like the sonic equivalent of hugging a warm load of fresh laundry).

Download Ssion mixtape, 'Crack My Witch Up'

Posted By on Fri, Jun 11, 2010 at 8:30 AM

Cody Critcheloe, Kansas City's greatest art-punk pop star and the leader of the Ssion collective, is killing it. He directed a recent Peaches video, he pops up in Vice magazine all the time, and BOY, his feature-length film, is still making the rounds to fine reviews.  

He just made a mixtape for DIS Magazine that you can download here. Tracklist here. It's got songs by Madonna, PJ Harvey, and Janet Jackson, and it flows remarkably well. Basically, if you like Ssion, you will probably like this tape.

Stream the new Blitzen Trapper album, "Destroyer of the Void"

Posted By on Wed, Jun 2, 2010 at 12:51 PM

rsz_blitz.jpg
Portland-based schizo Americana outfit Blitzen Trapper plays the Record Bar in a few weeks, on Tuesday,

June 22. In the meantime, you can stream their latest, Destroyer of the Void (out June 8 on Sub Pop) over at NPR. Or if

you want it for your iPod, you can download "Dragon's Song," a track from Void, plus an exclusive demo, at the

band's website.


A few runs through Void

yield the usual Blitzen Trapper returns: weirdo twang, stacked harmonies, one

folk ditty for every art-rock stomp, a hodgepodge of 1970s sounds the band expertly molds into something uniquely its own. If you liked these guys before, there's little on the new album that should

change your mind. If you liked them just okay, but thought their arrangements weren't theatrical enough, well, this is the album for you, because there's clear echoes of Jethro Tull, Queen, and Hunky Dory-era Bowie on this thing.
