It's been an awesome few weeks with the ride-or-die homies in town from the great white East, but with a level of real-world physical activity that precluded a lot of music snobbery. That said, the ol' stereo's been spinning a pretty eclectic mix of records lately, notably the predictably excellent Winter Review 2009 comp from the fine people over at Underwater Peoples, when I wasn't busy jamming the new Spoon record or, god help me, that Cap'n Jazz retrospective.
Also of note this week: the UK's Chalices of the Past give LCD's "Someone Great" the spacy 8-bit treatment, with surprisingly satisfying results.
