    the realest: accept no imitations

    "Doing the damn thing big big big this Friday with Caps and Jones, whose Moving in Stereo mixtape is all kinds of bonkers. Honestly, this thing is gonna be big. Big like a pickup truck. Big like Patrick Ewing. Big like eating 20 tacos. Big like wall-to-wall carpeting.

    Here's how it works: load up the iPod, then get thee to a little red newsbox.

    1. SWVL interviews Danger Mouse about Gorillaz stuff (PHX link here). At Banned Music you can download The Grey Album, as well as more recent copyright-busting remixes like Hippocamp Ruins Pet Sounds, which does for the Beach Boys what Danja Danja did for Lennon/McCartney.

    We don't do this much, but Jessie May Hemphill may still have that gun. She's a tough broad. Also, not coincidentally, one of the five or so Delta blues singer/guitarists who is guaranteed to re-arrange your ass, brain, and heart on first listen. She's "important" because she influenced everyone from the Stones to Mr.

    Let's get meta, shall we? Jamie Foxx-as-Ray-Charles up against Ray Charles-as-Ray Charles in new/recent maintream hip-hop fantabulousness. Both tracks are like whoa. You already know the answer, but go ahead and try to figure out which is which.

    By all accounts, Plunge Into Death's Area D killed it all-ages style last weekend with his kiddie duo the Humanimals. D knows about double duty, and tonight he's back helming “Musk,” his weekly retard-disco dance party at the Midway Café in JP. With a guest set from the Awesome Brothers, a Providence kindergarten-accident-synth-rock duo who have a way awesomer secret than the White Stripes: one of them’s not really a brother:

    Didn’t get out early enough to hit Ted Leo or ToL on Saturday, so we ended up at P.A.’s Lounge to see a Famous Author in a Band with Two Indie-Cred-Toting Musicians: Rick Moody’s musical sideline, the Wingdale Community Singers, with Gastr del Sol's David Grubbs and singer/songwriter Hannah Marcus. An eyewear company should’ve sponsored the show, considering that the 100 or so folks seated Indian-style on the wooden floor (what was up with that?) could've been an ad for how to turn bad eyes into scene points.

    And you thought Nike were the only ones doing it: I-Heart-Music message-boarders offer suggestions for the new wave of corporate appropriation.

    Gee, big corporations stealing shit from indie bands for free. Wonder where they got that idea?

    Sorry, somehow we didn’t get the memo on the Stairs. But when we find the jackass who left us off the list, he’s getting a beatdown. A Dedham art-pop band that got a cable-access grant to finance its Yoshimi/Alien Lanes/Dusk at Cubist Castle-style pet sounds, pulled its own Pussy Galore by covering Silver Jews’ The Natural Bridge in its entirety, and released a free EP on the Web last year, they’re about to release On Sleep Lab (Access to Visions), quite simply and by a large margin the best local indie-pop album of the year.
