Toronto’s Loveless

October 31st, 2011 | The Mix | 4 Comments

In honour of the 20th anniversary of My Bloody Valentine‘s masterpiece album Loveless, we, the indie-rockers of Toronto, would like to show our gratitude with this covers compilation. You can download it for free off soundcloud, but please support the original artists who created the masterpiece by heading over to your local record store and purchasing the album on vinyl. It’s totally worth it.

All of Toronto is also welcome to come to the all-ages 20th anniversary celebration party we’ll be putting on at the Toronto Underground Cinema this Friday (November 4th).

I had never considered that it might be possible to pull off a genuinely cool, affecting version of the camp classic “Monster Mash”, but somehow Brooklyn new-wavers Selebrities have done just that. Wow. (Via Gorilla Vs. Bear)

Supreme Dicks

There was a period of time where I scrounged the internet trying to find something as precious and intimate as the early Sebadoh albums. I wish I’d found the work of Supreme Dicks, most of which was released between 1993-1996 and is now being reissued by one of my favourite lablels, Jagjuguwar, in a four-disc collection.

Have You Heard The New…Guided By Voices?

Guided By Voices – The Unsinkable Fats Domino

Shit, I haven’t really been posting much music by new unknown bands lately, but I’ve just been really busy and haven’t heard anything that’s made me all that excited. However, I am excited about the new Guided By Voices album coming out on January 1st, Let’s Go Eat The Factory. The first single dropped today on the internets and it’s pretty cool. It’ll be out on a 7″ with B-side “We Won’t Apologize” on November 22nd.

Firstly – this is what you expect, and what you want. It’s short, it’s catchy, it lyrics probably mean nothing, and it fucking rocks. I want like 13 more of these, yes please (20 is too many though, seriously). Is the song actually an ode to the legendary “Blueberry Hill” rocker? I doubt it. Pollard probably just thought his name sounded funny.

It would appear that Robert Pollard‘s second act rennaisance is continuing in full-swing with no signs of stopping. And this is coming from someone who was 6 the last time the “classic lineup” was in action.

What did you think of the song? What do you think the album will be like? Let me know in the comments section or over Facebook or Twitter.
