Oh, and John Darnielle updated his site with a piece about Coil today. He got all the names of their albums wrong and even misspelled the one he was actually writing about, but it's still great to see such an enthusiastic response to them. He also picks out "Red Birds Will Fly Out of the East and Destroy Paris in a Night," which must surely be the best song the band has ever done, and one of my favorite songs period.
I'm glad someone reviewed that David Lynch album. I've loved the tracks from it ("Go Get Some," "Pretty 50s," and my personal favorite "Mountains Falling") that are included on the Mulholland Drive soundtrack for a while, but I wasn't too sure the album would be worth picking up. Sounds promising, though...
Just a quick plug for my blog, Auspicious Fish, which has finally got off the ground with some content. That's all!

Namelessnumberheadman- Unproven Theorem

Anyone heard the new Grandaddy yet? Anyone really disappointed with it? This is the band that fulfills the promise of what Sumday should have been and this is the song that encapsulates it all. A shimmering guitar holding down the beat, a bouncing drum machine mixing with live drums, and an ever upward spiral of lead guitar crashing into oblivion- then the outro where the first lyrics come in augmented by a piano and that same drum machine and what sounds like a theremin. And it all ends with synthetic strings! Incredible.
