An almost weekly assortment of musical oddities purchased or given to POF.
BLACK DICE – Chocolate Cherry 7″ (catsup plate) – Limited to 500 copies; initially being sold on tour.
CHARLIE & The MOONHEARTS – Drop In Drop Out 7″ (tic tac totally) – Recorded by Ty Segall
CHARLIE & The MOONHEARTS – Thunderbeast cdr (bubca) – Limited to 100 copies. Same tracks that are on their Telephone Explosion Records cassette. Features a cover of Del Shannon’s “Runaway”.
CHARLIE & The MOONHEARTS/TEEN ANGER – Split 12″ (telephone explosion)
GOLDEN TRIANGLE – 6 Song Tour Ep 12″ (sangre libre) – Silkscreen cover designed by Raul De Nieves. Hand numbered out of 500.
HEADDRESS – Lunes 12″ + mp3 (no quarter) Mysterious and elusive, Austin psychedelic duo, with a prior release last year on Mexican Summer (an off-shoot of kemado).
HOLY FUCK – Lovely Allen 7″ (young turks) – B-side features a studio version of “Super Inuit”
HOLY FUCK – S/T LP (young turks) – 2007 debut, surprisingly nothing new out since this release.
JANE – (self) – cdr in a 7″ sleeve.
A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS – Missing You Ep (rocket girl) – Four track EP with one track, a demo and two remixes. Cardboard sleeve.
The POLYCORNS – S/T cdr (self) – Dallas duo’s 12 song debut that is completely influenced by Cold War Kids. Fairly predictable song structure and the soulful singing is a little contrived but people that frequent places like Barley House or Poor David’s Pub would be all over this.
The PRESENT – World I See 2 x 12″ (loaf) – Debut full-length from 2008; featuring members of Gang Gang Dance. You really need to be in a special mood to listen to this.
QUEENS – ? (self) – cdr in a 7″ sleeve.
TROUBLE ANDREW – Remixed + Remastered (virgin) – Could probably tour with an ipod and a microphone.
TY SEGALL– Universal Momma 7″ (true panther sounds) – Hand-numbered out of 500
TY SEGALL – Horn the Unicorn 12″ (hbsp-2x) – Compilation of out-of-print cassettes, a 7″ and some early gems; limited to a run of 500.
YAM – Assumptions (blug fug) – Yam is an acronym for You & Me. Assumptions is entirely too long of an album, clocking in at 65 minutes. Overall it is really hokey and definitely not for me; with lyrics like “shazam” thrown-in at random (or songs titled “Make Time for Hugging” and “The Man Who Invented Syphilis”, its hard to take this album/band seriously. Features one member of Deep Snapper. Assumptions was recorded at Echolab.
Bootlegs – It’s been a while since I taped audio (and video) for any of my shows, but I want to say thanks to Chris Magee for recording some of my last few shows and I hope he continues to do so becauses its one less thing I have to think about during a show.
