rattled by the rush

ok so if you were listening last tuesday, you might've heard richard mention this ad that's been circulating the internet (possibly tv in america as well?) for the forthcoming bonnie prince billy album. this is part one of three, apparently.
um it's kind of ... really strange. take a look:

also EXCITING NEWS. jagjaguwar records have just put up an mp3 from the forthcoming swan lake album which is entitled beast moans. just incase you haven't heard, swan lake is a canadian INDEDIEEE supergroup featuring dan bejar of destroyer/new pornographers, carey mercer of frog eyes and spencer krug of wolf parade/sunset rubdown. this track's called "all fires". it's farking good too.

swan lake - all fires

in gig news, the next a low hum tour hits chch friday after next. this one features post-rockers jakob, city city city (cool band from melbourne), operation rolling thunder, with support from local upandcomers the tiger tones.
same deal as usual. $10 entry/$15 with cd and mag and there's an all ages and r18 show.

HOWEVER the same night is another really awesome gig at the dux! this one has voom, samuel flynn-scott & the b.o.p and punches! if you can't decide between the two you should just copy me (cos i'm awesome) and go to the all ages ALH and then this afterwards. WOW SMART EH?!

and it looks like it's gonna be a pretty massive weekend, cos the next night ryan mcphun and the ruby suns are set to play their twinkling psychadelic indie pop at the dux!

on a random note, i should tell you about the hype machine. it's like an mp3 blog search engine. type in a band/song and it searches 1000s of mp3 blogs to see if it's on the internet. wicked shit!
