Apteka: Polished if not Polish

Wikipedia says, "Apteka is a Polish rock band, founded in 1983 in Gdynia. Their LP 'Narkotyki' won 'Płyta Roku' ('LP of the Year') of Gazeta Wyborcza in 1992. The word 'apteka' means 'drug store' in Polish. . . ." Wikipedia admits, though, its article is but a stub.

I do not believe that is the same psychygazy Chicago band under instant consideration. I could of course ask Adam, who, after all, did give me kind permish to post some songs, but am much too shy for such presumption. All I know is I've been hugely enjoying Apteka's music and thank Adam for said permish.

If you, too, like, you can get the other six (6) songs from their excellent Tour EP by going to the band’s MySpace site or by clicking here. The price is right: free.

The Delfields: (are not) Ogres

This New Brunswick, New Joisey trio*** serves up pretty pure pop. (Words like “pretty pure pop” are not to be thrown around cavalierly – or roundheadedly – and I don't.) Yes, I said “trio,” despite the presence of two-thirds more personnel in the picture than previously indicated. It might be fun to try and figure out just who’s who and what’s what. For example, I’m thinking that after serving it up/rocking The Octopus into eight-armed limpitude till the early morning light, The Delfields invited Sad Zombie to their favorite field for a bit of grass-tugging. And it worked! Sad Zombie became Very, Very, Very Happy Zombie. That's what I'm thinking.

Or we could just give ear to the pop that Candice Jones at Team Clermont most graciously sent myour way.

(By the way, The Delfield’s logo is an octopus.)

Hej. Heh.

These high-climbing Brooklynites, former members of Philly's The Asteroid #4 and The Three 4 Tens, really know how to psych it to ya. From their debut, Himalaya:
