First, since this has to do with a radio show that’s airing tonight, I encourage you to read Kenny Johnson’s blog titled “Alabama Substrate Freakout,” and make plans to listen in.
Next, go ahead and get out the calendar (or phone, or what-have-you) and make plans to attend a comedy show on Tuesday, May 6. Location: AlleyBAR in Montgomery. Time: 8 p.m. Cost: None. Zero. Zilch. Free comedy show, hosted by Rudy Banes and featuring Jason Fifi and some out-of-town performers. Details here.
If you haven’t heard the new Sunny Day Real Estate (yes, after 14 years, our ears get a new Sunny Day Real Estate song!), then stop what you’re doing and find it. It’s on YouTube, Spotify and other online retailers, or hit up eBay for people selling the 7″ vinyl split (with Circa Survive) that came out on Record Store Day last month (because it’s now May, folks…)
The song is called “Lipton Witch” and there is good and bad. I’ll start with the good: IT’S A NEW SUNNY DAY REAL ESTATE SONG, AND IT’S A GREAT SONG!
Now the bad: It’s a tease. I hear this song, and I now want to hear a full album of this greatness by a band that I miss. But the recording process “fell apart” according to a Pitchfork article. Sadness. But the song is great.
In other news, I’m working on some new Glorious 70mm stuff. (Not pictured: the MicroKorg.) I’ve also been attempting to experiments with some other stuff. We’ll see how it goes… and if I like it. But yeah, new Glorious 70mm in the works.
