New Music Tuesday

You might notice a few changes around here shortly. First, I've got an "in-line flash player" beside every mp3, allowing for easy streaming. It took me a few hours to get them set-up, but, er... I figured it out, eventually. Some other things to look out for are a new banner (because the current one flat out sucks) and hopefully an entire re-design in the upcoming weeks. Anyways, enjoy the flash streamer for now, gotta start small.

Onto the music...

Windmill - Puddle City Racing Lights

Windmill - Tokyo Moon
Windmill - Fluorescent Lights





Tokyo Police Club - Box
Tokyo Police Club - Cut Cut Paste






Tunturia - Maps

Tunturia - Cast No Shadows
Tunturia - October 4, 1957







Windmill is the pseudonym of Matt Dillon, a British pianist set to release his debut album in two weeks time. Unless you've got bad ears, his nasally high-pitched voice is the first thing you'll notice. Beyond the vocals is a nicely arranged piano-pop structure, which is very likable. It's a love-it-or-hate-it sort of deal, his voice reminiscent of Wayne Coyne (of the Flaming Lips) backed with piano ballads and bright pop inclinations.

The Toronto-based Tokyo Police Club don't need any introductions. They're a blogger's band through and through. But they've only released a 16 minute long EP, so is the lofty praise justified? That's certainly debatable. Smith is their second EP, even shorter than A Lesson in Crime, clocking in at a measly 9 minutes. Like their past work, Smith is very catchy indie rock in all its hooky glory. The jury's still out on them due to their slim catalogue, but hopefully a quality LP is on its way.

Tunturia are a local post-rock outfit, so local that I went to high school with their drummer. Given my fondness of shoegaze, I've always had an affinity to sprawling and unconventional music. Their sound is icy and empty, painting a picture of a desolate and barren landscape. I'm still amazed that an inventive album like this could be created from someone that went to my cultural wasteland of a school. They'll be kicking off a Canadian tour in May, hopefully getting signed in the process.

In other (unrelated) news: Prison Break finale last night, wtf? I don't think I'm the only one out there that thinks this show is turning into a contrived waste of airwaves.

Windmill - Tokyo Moon...

I detest and hate this guy's voice. Every time I hear this pathetic whining, I want to smash the radio to pieces. Please Mr Windmill, stick to playing the piano and get somebody else to write the lyrics and sing.

Truly awful!

I keep finding that inbreds don't like windmill. Windmill make everything right. PUDDLE CITY RACING LIGHTS is the album of 2007.

Order the pillow pets nutty elephant from the link on the right. Choose between the 11" and 18" versions.So it is best to get one early this year if one of your children is looking for one at Christmas time, since there is no guarantee that it won’t happen again! Hopefully the Pillow Pets company has taken steps to make sure that supply meets demand, and everyone that wants one will be able to get one this year.
