I'm on facebook, right now. No, right now. Actually, probably "right now" too. Dang, it's a sad thing.

Track list:

1. Imaginations Treetrunk - branching out - ol' lady love songs

Comments: East Van Hip Hop! I'm reprazentin'! Okay, I take it back. I don't want to uncool this group with my allegiance. That wouldn't be fair.

2. Au Revoir Simone - the bird of music - a violent yet flammable world

Comments: So pretty.

3. R.E.N. and the Panic - the panic - get more an lose

Comments: Pretty frickin' awesome. I give it two Northern thumbs up.

4. Land of Talk - applause cheer boo hiss - street wheels

Comments: The cover says it's like Catpower. Basically yes, if she was a bit happier than usual today and plugged in. This is a very pleasant thing.

5. Love of Diagrams - mosaic - confrontation

Comments: wacky, I love the ending! This is like the Who's 'Tommy', but about doomed relationships between slightly bored punks. Awesome.

6. Derek Robinson & Matt Brown - the indifferent ep - Track 2

Comments: I don't think it's indifferent - come on Derek and Matt, don't undersell yourselves here. I bet your moms told you that too. I'm notorious for sounding like everybody's mom. That really annoys the heck out of just about everybody. Sorry.

7.The Besnard Lakes - the besnard lakes are the dark horse - and you lied to me

Comments: An epic opus. My favourite bit comes at -2:50, for future reference.

8. Sybarite - sybarite - sanctuary

Comments: beeps and bleeps, with some trumpet.

9. My Brightest Diamond - tear it down - freak out (gold chains panique mix)

Comments: dark and punchy, like how I feel.

Poor DJ Ninja Space Monkey, she just got too busy to entertain the masses. It is a national tragedy. Perhaps she will come back for a show or two this summer, you never know.
