Some kind readers send me the rip of Of Montreal’s cover of the White Stripes as soon as I posted a request for it. You guys are great. Too bad I spaced on posting it until today. But better late than never. Here’s Of Montreal tackling the classic White Stripes song.
Modest Mouse have hit the studio with Big Boi but until this weekend we’d heard pretty much nil from the upcoming record. That changed at Sasquatch, with the new songs “Poison” and “Lampshades on Fire.”
Happy Memorial Day everybody! If you’re in Lexington, I encourage you to come check out CD Central’s Memorial Day party. Free concert in the parking lot, cheap eats and drinks, and a sale on a lot of music. See you there!

I’m not that familiar with Other Lives’ past works, but Tamer Animals has been a fantastic record to listen to for the last week. I doubt this one will turn into a mega hit given that I haven’t seen much press about it, but know that it’s a huge hit in my headphones.
MP3:Other Lives – For 12
After many listens, I finally figured out what band “For 12” reminds me of: Seawolf! I went through a huge Seawolf phase in around 2006 and this reminds me of everything I loved about that band: subtle-yet-quick percussion, orchestral folk production and great vocals. With that said, I still have to give the edge on the album to the title track. It sounds like an orchestral version of the National. Check out a live video of that one below.
PCC fans who preorder the new album have a special treat in store for them. The band recorded a covers EP that they’ll give you gratis with any preorder. So put in your order now and grab covers of the Kinks, Frank Zappa, Thin Lizzy and more!
