El Guincho - "Hindou"

El Guincho is spanish musician Pablo Díaz-Reixa. this is from his new ep "Piratas de Sudamérica". I can't speak spanish but this is the perfect soundtrack for a lazy summer afternoon.

Garcia plays KYUSS with Nick Oliveri and Brant Bjork - Green Machine

Really raw recording but three of the original kyuss members together is always a good thing.

Street Chant - Yr Philosophy

THE GORDONS - 'Future Shock'

Its hard to believe a group such as the gordons existed in New Zealand in 1981 a propulsive form of noise and punk. This incarnation of the gordons would go on to form the immortal Bailterspace.

Notwist - Pick Up The Phone

ahh the summer of 02/03

Notwist - Pick Up The Phone from City Slang on Vimeo.

Lower Dens - Hospice Gates

What is it with Baltimore bands this year this is the second one that has wowed me the other being "Future Islands". Lower Dens feature the vocal talents of Jana Hunter who is an acclaimed singer songwriter but its the music that gets me, hazy trippy indie rock at its finest.


Moving from a more noise rock vain to a more electronic vibe means great things, infectious.

Superchunk - Cast Iron / The First Part

Superchunk are about to release there first album in 9 years but for me there greatest legacy will always be there creation of Merge records. With artists such as Arcade Fire, Spoon, Caribou and many more. This is two live tracks from Merge XX last year.
