I don't update my blog enough. I'm sorry.

However... here are a couple bands who have written a few good songs and posted them on the King of all Websites, myspace.com.

1. Over the Atlantic myspace
Todd at Carpark sent me an email about this band from New Zealand. The few songs they have on Myspace are subtlely pretty electro-pop tunes, with some very nice Kiwi pop guitar strumming... and plenty of warm reverb, of course. Gee, I'm sure these guys get a lot of Flying Nun comparisons... really, that claim extends only as far as the reverb and the fact that they are from New Zealand. Lovely, and sometimes bears a strange resemblance to my friend Ben's pop solo project, Bones (formerly known as Bonedaddy. Bring back the old name, Ben!).




2. Beach House myspace
This pair is from Baltimore. In fact I think I've seen the guy strutting around town once or twice! They are touring with Over the Atlantic this fall, and they write wonderful songs as well. See them in Baltimore sometime. God knows the city needs your help.

Now, I'm spent. No wonder I never update. I'm bored already! Just kidding. Have faith in me, readers.

Just started working at Amp Camp in Brooklyn, so I have a new excuse for not posting here very often. Phew! Good thing, I was worried I was gonna have to get creative. My first assignment was to review the latest Martin Hannett anthology. The review is here.
