Jimmy Behan - In the Sudden Distance EP (They're Giving It Away No. 9)

Delicate haunty chimes ring out above your pillowed young head. In bed, waiting for your parents to drive back in the dark. Each passing car's headlines leaving douglas furs trances on the wall. You think something could have happened in the dark snow, leaving you and your bother behind. But they come back, safe. Door a jar, "Just checking to see if your asleep".
Another amazing release which is available for free from the artist themselves.
Download Jimmy Behan - beautful EP "In the Sudden Distance" from the Zymogen label.

Little Claw

For all that are still waken up in cold sweats thinking you could have prevented Sleater kinney's departure for this cruel business called show. Well we all have those sleepless nights but we cant change the past, but to look farward and with another power pop three piece in toe we can. Little Claw with their grawl voiced female singer and no bass player to be seen, Little Claw are drawn from the same blue print as our beloved departed and they sound it to, more ramshakled but just as hipnotic.
Their debut is out now on Ecstatic Peace and can be Bought Here and your right "Movies For You" is pure TMNT.

So I started to uses my Last FM account after a friend
told what the dealio was with it. The first great
find is Applied Communications. A band of "weird
allusions to masturbation and hypertext markup language".
Emperor X style of sound collage american indie with
casiotones and shout shout dairy entries. Sweet.

Daily Misconceptions have made a collection
of sweet delicate electronica. The one man band
from Portugal is culled from the same herd as
Sigur Ros and their voice sampling ways and
Mum's glitchy glitch with a pinch of accordion to
soothe away any woes.

Pino Donaggio - Body Double

I watched Brian De Palma's Body Double tonight, not
quite the same high quality as the three previous films,
Scarface (1983), Blow Out (1981),Dressed to Kill (1980)
but still well worth a look unlike his truely truely awfull
The Black Dahlia. It also has a nice score, wonderful
arpeggiator tracks from Italian composser Pino Donaggio
who as it turns out also scored Don't Look Now and Trauma.
