Stephen Brodsky + Animal Hospital + WAYFAYIS
Steve Brodsky, seen last night post-Octave-Museum-set getting fanboyishly up in Ramona Cordova's grill, goes for his second night in a row -- this time with his own solo-dude-with-guitar stylings. We go on about this like a broken record, but if Stephen doesn't put out his unreleased solo album Static Intellect pretty soon, we're going to leak the fucking thing. He's also told MTV that he's working on some of "the most elaborate" songwriting he's ever done. You can and should buy the other Brodsky solo albums, as well as the new Cave In album (already in second pressing: fuck you, RCA!), as well as the New Idea Society record (which is really more this guy's baby), and whatever else he's selling. On a completely unrelated note, Animal Hospital are really cool. Check this shit out . . .

LISTEN: Animal Hospital, "Beneath the Ocean" (mp3)

Victory at Sea + Reputation + Shore Leave + Piles
Vic @ Sea started out as the last of the Chicago-style indier-than-indie bores but have surprised the shit out of everyone in recent years by overcoming all that bloodless meandering and turning into a great fucking band. People still desribe Elisabeth from the Reputation as the gal from Sarge, which is getting a little old. Her and Mr. Since You've Been Gone (he's not playing! Just being a thorough linker!) are the best part of Lookout!, hands down. Shore Leave and Piles are like secrets we don't feel like parting with yet: you remember when the furtive, crepuscular art-rudeboy Momus said that in the future everyone will be famous to 15 people? Like that.

LISTEN: Victory at Sea, "Love Is Ageless" (mp3)
LISTEN: The Reputation, "Face It" (mp3)
LISTEN: Shore Leave, "Water" (mp3)
