Suburban Christmas Cards and a Present
The snow has just begun to fall here in America's home town. I started up the snow blower to assure that it is in opperational condition, I've just popped in the the excellent Random Spirit Lover from Sunset Rubdown and I'm ready for the 1st measurable snow fall of the season.
On to some worthy post material. Okkervil River has given permission for you to open there holiday gift early this year. The Golden Opportunities Mix tape is available for free download at the bands site Okkervil River Golden Opportunities was recorded on tour from 2006 to 2007 and includes 8 covers and 1 new track, the stunning Listening to Otis Redding at Home During Christmas. You'll definitely want to add that to your holiday play list.
Super Furry Animals finally drop there eighth album and first via Rough Trade Hey Venus on January 22nd. Hey Venus was released in August overseas to much acclaim. I for one can not wait to get my hands on this one.
SFA will play The Paradise on February 23rd.
