Pariah Beat - Bury Me Not

Bury Me Not

I don't know anything about this group. I know just one thing - I felt the same way when I first heard The Pogues long time ago. Pariah Beat are not musically similar, they just have that same joy of playing their music to the world!

Radiohead - The King Of Limbs

The King Of Limbs

After the third careful listening I can say that this schizophrenia, which manifest itself by antagonism between mechanistic repetitive rhythmic matrix and smeared and weepy vocals (first seen in Joy Division), is singing about my sad life in this cruel world, as Arsen Dedić, albeit in a different context, used to say, ".. you'll have to go into that mill that grinds ...". *

Stray Dogg - Demo EP

Stray Dogg is my real life son. So, I'm in conflict of interest if I write about his EP. But you can download and listen to it here:

Kurt Vile - Square Shells EP

Square Shells EP

Incidental meeting at the party in their hometown Philadelphia changed lifes of Adam Granduciel and Kurt Vile. They were both obsessed with the most famous native of Duluth, Minnesota (no, it's not Charlie Parr!). Their obsession was just the starting point for The War on Drugs, more Adam's than Kurt's band. Kurt better expresses himself in his solo albums and EP's, unique pieces of music. It's hard to explain his music, most of the time it's chaotic and sounds like "sound check" but in the middle of that chaos when you witness a birth of heavenly melody the only possible reaction is to shut up and listen! He is yet on the hard way of making really good song, but I don't doubt he'll make it!
