I started off in a somewhat noisy direction this week. There has been a bunch of new Vancouver punk/noise releases coming into the station in the past few weeks. Notably, the Emergency Room and Thankless Records (I Ate Your Legs) compilations are full of strange, loud things from Vancouver and offer a great look into that part of the city's music scene.

I also talked about how much I am enjoying the new Music Tapes record. It is strange and eerie and a very beautiful record. Julian Koster apparently spent nine years writing and recording the thing. It sounds like it was recorded in the 1930s, in a haunted house. He is a former member of Neutral Milk Hotel which makes him very cool in my opinion.

I was going to post this video last week, but now is fine. It is Pavement playing Gold Soundz at a show in Germany in 1994, which is very nice! Watch it! I'll be back in two weeks. Enjoy your turkey.
