Fidel Catastrophe

Fidel Catastrophe is headed by the Original bassist of the Pomegranates (they're on their 3rd bassist right now), who is clearly a force to be reckoned with. They've been plugging their music via Band Camp, a site for unsigned bands that I'm growing more and more enamored of, though I'm surprised that anticon hasn't swiped these guys yet. They put me in mind of a poppy, concise version of Thee More Shallows combined with a less nasally and less rap-prone Yoni Wolf.

They also only have 3 songs available for download right now, and I've had them on repeat all day. I'm in band-love, guys. Deep, deep band-love. As far as I can tell, they're pressing vinyl right now, so there aren't any tracks on what.cd or waffles.fm. I want an album! The suspense is killing me!

Oneohtrix Point Never - Returnal

Oneohtrix Point Never - Returnal (2010)

More awesome music from this dude. This new one is really cool, it starts out on this kinda noisy track with lots of random bits kinda thrown in their, reminds me of some of his stuff from KGB man. The rest of the stuff on their is what you would mostly expect to hear on an Oneohtrix record I suppose, but that can't really be a bad thing. Definitely a good listen for the summer too, enjoy!
