What I'm listening to today

Apollo Heights. Last Of Montreal album + fuzzy shoegaze Working For A Nuclear Free City. Potential, but not there yet. Too much mid-tempo, mid-range earnest lyrics. Plus their song about disco isn't fun so much as trying to be funny. Still, easy to listen to in the background at work.

Red Mass. Ugly garage-psych rock. Dirtbombs plus echoes, some Stooges. Fun. Oh, wait, they also get noisey and weirder! Nice.

Voyager. Prog instrumentals, from Minnesota or something. More space probe than French traders.

Thunderbolt Pagoda. I started to write "Magma" for the text of the anchor tag there. Add Amon Duul II too.
