Wombats: This Modern Glitch
Wombats: Guide to Love, Loss and Desperation
Jesus and Mary Chain: Darklands


I think we’ve all been talking about them: it’s The Wombats with their new single, “Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves).”

Direct link for the feedreaders.

This is from their album, This Modern Glitch, due out April 26th. It’s available as a pre-order CD at the moment, though “Tokyo” is available as an MP3 download.

While we’re on the subject, I honestly did not make the connection until tonight that this is the same Wombats that gave me that modern classic, “Patricia the Stripper.”

I know, I’m dense. I know this. That of course is off their album A Guide to Love Loss & Desperation, which is available as both a CD and MP3 download from Amazon.


Next up, Rob arrives and throws The Jesus & Mary Chain in front of you: here’s a live version, from 2007, of “Happy When It Rains.”

The original is from Darklands, available from Amazon as a CD.

Emo Diaries 12
Raveonettes: Raven in the Grave
Outasight: Figure 8

Next, I point you to the band Collapse Under the Empire and their track “Anthem of 44.”

One of my favorite things about this track is where it comes from: the compilation disc from Deep Elm Records entitled The Emo Diaries, Chapter 12: I Love You But in the End I Will Destroy You. Genius title. The compilation is available as an MP3 downloadso is the song itself. Enjoy.


We go back to Rob for a band he’s been talking up a lot: The Raveonettes. This is “Forget That You’re Young.”

Direct link for the feedreaders.

The album is Raven in the Grave and it’s available from Amazon as both an MP3 download and CD.


Outasight’s new EP is due out April 26th. Here’s the title track from it, “Figure 8.” There’s two ways songs like this get my attention: one is with exceptional wordplay in the lyrics. The second way is basically how this one works for me: the music and beat foundation under it are eminently listenable.
