A Severe Case Of?

Hands down, still one of my favorite songs.  She is nuts, and gorgeous, and so goddamned talented.

Dive? DIIV? Whatev

It...kinda blends together, track by track, I suppose.  But it almost needs to.  It's dream-pop-y and a little bit motorik (and yes, the name change is kinda inane)--but this is /good/.  The smudgy guitars and unintelligible vocals careen across a staccato bass that hurdles along at speeds Engineers could get behind circa 2009 (maybe with a little less heroin).  It's synth-y indie-pop and shoegaze pressed through a mound of gauze.
Why wasn't I listening to this sooner?

New Cat Power CD/LP 9/14

Stereogum presents a dead-on accurate "Premature Evaluation" of Chan Marshall's new Cat Power album, Sun, which, oddly enough, I agree with. Funny how I'm always agreeing with dead-on, accurate assessments, but it is what it is.
Read it. And listen to the three tracks available at the end of Tom Breihan's review.
CDs and LPs will be available at the store Tuesday, September 14th, along with (probably not all that many) limited edition deluxe double LP + 7s bearing two non-album tracks, both on clear vinyl.

Knock Knock

I have not been this excited for an album in a long time!
