A new beginning

Back in the game like you-know-who.

No, you didn't wake up in a different town. That's the new-look Phoenix, and chances are, someone who wrote it handed it to you this morning. If you just showed up here at OTD, we've been at this blog thing for a minute, so you might wanna scroll down and check the archives; you've got some catching up to do. In the meantime, here's the soundtrack to the new ish:

COVER STORY: Download two songs from Dropkick Murphys' The Warrior's Code right here. Also, grab two songs from the Unseen's new album here.

NEW ENGLAND PRODUCT: That new Antler track Rucker was talking about? Click no further:
Antler, "A River Underground" (mp3)

INDIE: After you read Mikael Wood's Emiliana Torrini appreciation, go grab ET's cover of the Velvet Underground's "Stephanie Says" from Big Stereo.

HIP-HOP: And after you're done catching up with the summertime jawn Jay-Z dropped on the Memphis Bleek album, Lemon Red's got the new Roc summer anthem: Kanye gets all Amnesty International and shines his "Diamonds"-remix sparkle on the dark side of Sierra Leone, then Jay interrupts the public-service announcement to remind folks he's still, technically, retired. Hurry, though: that track's due to come down today.

ELECTRONIC: Nick Sylvester helps you stream/download your way through what you missed at Montreal's Mutek conference. (Also check out his essay on why Boston can't dance.)

Bowie's guitarist at the Lizard Lounge. Plus: a Thin Lizzy tribute at the Abbey, La Faccia Brutta at Great Scott, Jonathan Richman at the Middle East, Suspect Device at O'Brien's, Asa Brebner at the Paradise, and Rogue Wave and Dirty on Purpose at T.T.'s.

We're pretty sure you guys are up on Rogue Wave by now. But the openers are really hot, too. Listen to this girl sing:

Dirty on Purpose, Mind Blindness (mp3, via band site)
