It’s a sad day when people younger than you are getting critical acclaim before you are. Or after you…but maybe you haven’t gotten any in a long time…any way…Oberhofer is a band from Brooklyn making sick indie tunes. Love the electric-telephone-line vocals and spastic, enthused rubber-band arrangement. They just put out a 7″. It’s good.

Looks like I’m all set to fly into New York Friday for Northside and I’m psyched to be covering it. Some fest person just wanted me to pass on the info that badges are discounted 25% till midnight tonight. You have to go this site and enter the discount code “LMAG” and yeah, bam! Discounted.

Volcano Playground and Tearjerker are two of the best shoegaze bands in Toronto. And both are playing tomorrow (Thursday, June 24th) at Tiger Bar. I will be there. Check out this digital 7″ with VP’s “Anywhere” and Tearjerker‘s “Nice Clothes”.

Bravestation

Derek Wilson, frontman for Toronto post-punk band Bravestation, just sent me over the band’s sophomore EP. And yeah, it’s really cool. Nod of approval directed at the more experimental direction they’re heading in after a solid but very Interpol-esque debut EP. Still a lot of dark 80s stuff going on though…
