Radio K's recent in-studio performances
Those whippersnappers at Radio K have a lovely habit of inviting some pretty great artists to their studio (among other things). Their output is constant, and since it has been a spell since we gave them a look-see, we're doing just that.
But of course: we have a conceit! Several years ago I reviewed a record by defunct sludge-bringers Count Vesuvius, wherein I attempted to "usefully" describe the music via stream-of-consciousness poetics. So: here goes nothing...
Sims, "Future Shock" -- Fodder for the future-jammed.
The Blind Shake, "Out of Work" -- "Wait, liquor stores aren't open on Sunday? Fuck it, let's go to Sconny."
Pink Mink, "Booby Prize" -- To find the shortest distance between two points, follow all the dead crows.
Mojo Pin Up, "Hide" -- Wait, Ron Paul actually has a good idea?
Lovely Dark, "Fields of Fire" -- Translucent memories of the Lake Harriet Bandshell.
Screaming Females, "It All Means Nothing" and "Wild" -- Solitude breeds popularity.
