Track list:

1. Miss Violetta Beauregarde - odi profanum vulgus et arceo - the unbearable lightness of a farm tractor

Comment: oh crap, so weird. Therefore fabulous.

2. The Sadies - live vol. 1 - Tiger Tiger

Comment: The only way to see the Sadies is Live. I don't know what your alternatives are, but there it is.

3. Ghostrain - let the record show - the modern age

Comments: I can relate - I also fear the modern age. I feel I belong in the 1920s, with the girls with no boobs. Oh wait... damn.

4. The Old Soul - she's got party davis eyes - he's got larry david eyes/she's got party davis eyes

Comments: played almost solely for the titles. Absolutely love it, because anything weird is instantly my friend.

5. The Stance - shall inherit the earth - kiss me kiss me

Comments: masterful use of the word 'baby'. Really quite kick-ass musically also.

6. Giant Squid - metridium fields - versus the siren

Comments: Ack, too emo for me. Sorry giant squid, your ink is running all over my new dress, which cost me $5, and that hurts because I am poor and my boyfriend called me a whore. What? Sorry, just getting into the spirit.

7. Bettie Serveert - bare stripped naked - roadmovies

Comments: so perky. I'm going home everyone. Try not to fall on your swords, I'll be back two weeks from now (cjsf.com, 7-8pm)

emily sings the blues

Please disregard that. I promise no singing.

Track list:

1. Lake Holiday - The Curse of Sunshine - press record then play

Description: Ding! Love it. Happy sounding.

2. The Square Waves - s/t - dreams kept on machine

Description: Loopy. And there are some tinkly sounds. Love it also.

3. David Bowie - David Live - Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing (reprise)

Description: This is maybe in my top five albums of all time, so you don't even need to ask.

4. Rafter - Achoo! An Asthmatic Kitty Sampler Vol. 1 - zzzPenchant

Description: If you're a music student, try to count along with this one. Maddening. But so unspeakably great.

5. The Fabulous Kildonans - bottle rocket - marktember rain

Description: Kind of generic, but overall fairly okay.

6. Cat Scientist - cicada - pink dress

Description: How could I avoid playing a song called 'pink dress' really. Being the owner of a little Pepto Bismolesque number myself, I can fully appreciate the sentiment behind the song... maybe. Unless it's about some horrible person with a pink dress, and then I just feel sad for pink dresses everywhere... Honestly, this song is super great. It's sort of funky but country-ish... something. It's really, really good, I recommend it.

7. Bonnie Prince Billy - cursed sleep - cursed sleep

Description: Carla, this is for you. Or is it your friend who likes him? I can't remember. Anyway, you're the reason I know who he is, so it's your song, enjoy it.
