Music of the Sphere: Ultra Vivid Scene, Mojave 3, Cloud Nothings, Vines, Ceremony, Someloves, TV Girl, Wheels, MBV, BKs, Fantasies, et. al. . . .
Yes, we know we should post more mp3s, but perhaps you won't mind taking one extra step for each of the following. We didn't, but that's just we. Thanks, hosts!
Ultra Vivid Scene - Staring At The Sun - Ecstasy in Slow Motion
Ceremony - Marianne - SKATTERBRAIN - We agree: this is one of our favorite LPs of the year.
TV Girl - On Land - Swedesplease - Scroll down to United States, svp.
Wheels - In My Head - Mojophenia
Cloud Nothings - Understand It All & Leave You Forever - RCRD-LBL
Sundelles - Kiss the Coast - Gimme Tinnitus
Ty Segall - My Sunshine - Pampelmoose
John Pantry - The Battle Of Trafalgar - The Rising Storm
The Someloves - Know You Now - Peter's Power Pop
The Vines - Don't Listen To The Radio - Peter's Power Pop
Mojave 3 - Ghost Ship Waiting - Indie Rock Cafe - our favorite by M3
My Bloody Valentine - Strawberrywine - Indie Rock Cafe
Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3 - Resolution - Indie Rock Cafe - IRC calls it "Resolve." It's that move at :55 that resolved it for us.
We're awfully glad that Scott over at the excellent Pretty Goes With Pretty ushered us to Louisville's The Decibel Tolls to read an interview about Spiderland, his new book on Louisville's Slint. What a great blog! (It tolled sonorously for us. It was to die for, indeed, i.e., was quite a-pealing. It made big, beautiful bongs. Etc.) "Kenny Bloggins" posts an excellent mix of psych, shoegaze, garage, and other delectables and discusses them quite cleverly. We've barely begun to ring the changes of the great music "Kenny" (aka "Michael") has posted, but here are some of our favorites so far.

The Fantasies - Tick Tock - The Decibel Tolls
The Low Frequency In Stereo - Starstruck - The Decibel Tolls
Darker My Love - Two Ways Out - The Decibel Tolls
The Sunshine Factory - Head Becomes the Tomb - The Decibel Tolls
Totem Poll - Pointless/Love Gallery - The Decibel Tolls
