Let's Go to Bed: KEXP Playlist 09/09/2010

Oh man, I am really into this release from Feeding Tube Records.

"This is too much. This is rich. This "package" is a work of art before you even get to the music. Stunning, really. Here, because nobody asked for it, is the original music for an early '80s UK computer game called Pimania. Oh sure, you remember it. Anyway, if you don't buy this, I hate you forever. The "music" is completely bonkers synth action and Ivor Cutler/Viv Stanshall loon-style humor. This is the archival release of the year."- FTR Agreed!

Here's last night's playlist!

Cease and Desist

Dear Chillwave, Synth pop, Post punk, New Wave, Psych, Shoegaze, Garage, Surf, and Girl Groups of 2008 and beyond,

Please come up with something new. Don't mess with the old stuff unless you're really good at it and even then, come up with something new.

Make you try make you try make you try

Pavement! If you get a chance to see them, do it...they were in fine form and gave me goosebumps on more than a few songs. Immerse yourself in nostalgia, and you don't even have to rely on that to enjoy the show- they were tight, classic, and perfectly imperfect. I think Malkmus said they would be back in town in January, but I could have heard wrong.

"Cut Your Hair"
"In the Mouth of a Desert"
"Date with IKEA"
"Starlings of the Slipstream"
"Rattled by the Rush"
"Gold Soundz"
"Conduit For Sale!"
"Stop Breathing"
"Trigger Cut"
"Fight This Generation"
"Silence Kit"
"Father to a Sister of a Thought"
"Kennel District"
"Range Life"
"Debris Slide"
"Spit on a Stranger"
"Shady Lane"
"The Hexx"
"We Dance"
"Two States"
"Summer Babe"
