I've got a new apartment baby, interior colour of red
(Ok - it's actually a room in a house and it's not red but it's still worth singing about anyway).
Lots of new treats for you this week - still enjoying the tracks from local outfit Snowbug as well as (finally) getting my hands on the new(ish) Yo La Tengo album "I'm not afraid of you and I will beat your ass". Huzzah.
There's also the Tenacious D movie ("The Pick of Destiny") soundtrack, new stuff from Jarvis Cocker and particularly exciting is the new Tom Waits 3 disc collection of oddities (does the guy do anything else?) called Orphans - Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards.
Throw in some CW Stoneking, some Ground Components and a rediscovering of a band called the Sea and Cake and I think we have the fixings of a pretty cool show.
(Of course, you could swap over to JJJ if you prefer - or should I say if you are the kind of person who would vote for Dark Side of the Moon as favourite album of all time - or Anthony Callea & Delta Goodrem over the Stones in the top 100. Says it all really)
