A fair number of reissues in this one, that I’ve compiled over the past day or so. But there’s also a couple of auspicious new releases just in, that I’ll be writing more about in the next few days.



One is the new album by Be Your Own Pet, which confirms them as an immensely entertaining cute/gonzoid pop-punk band. The other is “Mountain Battles” by The Breeders, which is playing for the first time as I type. We’re on Track Five, “German Studies”, right now. I’ll report back when it’s fully digested.
