"not my idea..."

Reccently, I came across the DC-based Record Label Fan Death when I found out that the group Screen Vinyl Image released a 7" on there . There seems to be a little buzz around said label, having/not-having some potential next-big-things on their rooster and whatnot. And of course they're also accused for an arrogant attitude, so people like to talk shit on them over there. Or at least, this is what I think is happening. All in all I don't care that much about it, but I really want to stress out that I think there are actually not that many small "companies" around with this wide range of music styles. When you got the time, check out their MySpace for some good and diverse tunes raging from Psychedelic Rock to Industrial to Shoegaze/Dream Pop.



Here is a song by one-man project Puerto Rico Flowers from Philly. It might be described as New Wave and Post-Punk. I'd say concerning the length of the songs, you might also add a little Swans and other Punk/Industrial bastards to that. Enjoy:

"all I can see - a gold mystic spree"

So, after downloading the new Interpol track Lights it took me some time to fully appreciate those nearly six minutes. But right now, there is not much space left for other music since said song is on heavy rotation for some time now.

I don't know what it is, but these fellows somehow figured it all out. When you play what some might call Post-Punk or New-Wave without being too much of a copy-cat, there's always a slight risk that the music ends up too pathetic. Interpol never had this problem, and this might also be the reason why people tend to speak more about White Lies or Editors. Even on their latest record, which was clearly more "mainstream" pop than the releases earlier on , they managed to walk that thin line between simple-kept Post-Punk and more orchestral (sometimes overthetop) Pop Music.

Now, all of a sudden the band is here with a new finished record and a free song to download in advance. Earlier this year, there were different quotes from different band members concerning the musical direction of the new material. While Singer Paul Banks was heard on the Radio, saying the new songs would have an "elegant, orchestral quality", Drummer Sam Fogarino mentioned a "back to the roots"-move. One should certainly not judge an album by one single track, but listening to Lights as I write these sentences down I have to admit that they're both right somehow. And this might be the reason, I'm still heavily in love with that band. They don't progress too much, but still they keep going.

I have not read of any Release Date, all I know is that Bass Player and Fashionisto Numero Uno Carlos D has recently left the band after the recording sessions.

Anyway, it's getting late and I've got work to do tommorrow (nobody believes it, but yeah!).
