Sweeping the Gravel

Sleeping in the Aviary (Phil Mahlstadt?) - Happy Birthday

Tonight launches Madison Pop Fest at Club 770 and if you're anywhere else, these manic tracks will hopefully get you in your car. It's all free, so put that money towards a trip downtown... perhaps some Mamochas at Himal Chuli or a Guiness at Brocach's.

Mason Proper - Lights Off (mp3): This is the result of dramatically shaking a heterogeneous jar of polarized low-fi and high-concept instrumentation, with the pop guitar and clear vocals always rising to the top. Their anti-interview is a MUST LISTEN.

Maps and Atlases -
Every Place Is a House (myspace download): The ease with which this hyper chaos falls into rhythms should be successfully applied to my filing cabinet or behavioral therapy.

Sleeping in the Aviary -
A Dream Confessed (mp3): Delightfully strange and honestly dynamic chordstorms are this premiere Madison band's interpretation of life's frustratingly ambiguous limbo... best visualized while vomiting, succumbing to clinical depression, watching talk shows when you should be doing something else, or sweeping gravel. Check out this video interview, complete with helmet-protected makeup application and living room thrash-rock.

I hope Joanna was as amazing as I imagined it would be. But while yoru evening was filled with free music and cool people, mine was filled with chinese food and dead Spanish poets. So really, who's night was better? I think it's a toss up.

Sorry I missed you and Joanna. It saddens me deeply. But, if you ever need a boiler fixed or a light bulb replaced, I'm not in that business.
