Quite a few new releases into the station this week, including the new A.C. Newman record. I really liked the first song of his that I played. Andrea described it as "orchestral." I do too. I haven't listened to the whole record yet though, so I can't comment on the whole thing. I have a question for you though...his myspace page says 'Brooklyn, New York' as his location. Did Carl abandon his Vancouver roots for the mecca of hip?

The new Animal Collective really is good, but of course you already know that. I take issue with the last song, but apart from that, it is a pretty easy record to like. They are playing in Vancouver on May 24 at the Commodore. No word on who with yet, but I imagine that show will sell out very quick, if it hasn't already. Lets see how long this one stays on the CFUV charts.

Also, the Victoria Film Festival starts on Friday! Let's go to films!
