The best of K Records
class=img_thumbleft>My emusic guide to the best 12 albums put out by K Records (myspace here ) is live. Feel free to post your disagreements here. I have to revise one choice, anyway, because of evolving distribution rights for Snuff . Banging this out let me appreciate Beat Happening again (yep, they're on myspace ), and made me check out all the K artists I'd only read about. If anyone ever tells you something "sounds like a K band," send them to this piece. Good to be working for Michaelangelo Matos and, indirectly, Michael Azerrad , whose Our Band Could Be Your Life was indispensable for the article.
