New Jamz on Friday

some more new stuff to mull over.

Hotel Mexico, confusingly enough are from Japan. So, listening to this I immediately found myself pining to listen to Cornelius, but stopped myself long enough to listen to this. And i'm glad i did. This new single sounds like Pinky & Perky jamming with Stereolab produced by Caribou. Lazy, journalistic references ahoy!

Guess what? I liked a new band so much i actually asked if i could work with them. Thankfully, they said yes.
Live they remind me of, variously Big Star, Peter Gabriel, Beechwood Sparks and Mercury Rev, although this song is a bit like if Buffalo Springfield had come back and discovered grunge.

Last weekend i had to go to London which meant for about the third time now i missed Thee Oh Sees perform in Manchester. By the time i do get to see them, i think my excitement for seeing them may lead to me being slightly let down. Or they could just rock me to the motherfucking ground.

There's a new album out (now?) soon, but in the meantime, this is always worth a watch.
