Check out that Michael Chapman preview; Natch should be posting the whole thing any day now. In the meantime, you’ll note that Ben Chasny’s busy summer has fetched up the second Rangda; that I can finally admit to owning the excellent Grizzly Bear album; that Agitated are putting out the great Birds Of Maya (parent band of both Purling Hiss and Spacin’) jam; that the Cave soundtrack features, among other things, both Mark Lanegan and Ralph Stanley having cracks at “White Light/White Heat”; and that one of these 19 records stinks on ice…
