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.

[jump] 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.
