Featured Track: This Will Destroy You “Three Legged Workhorse”

Big thanks to my pal Matt for reminding me about these guys.

Inevitable comparisons to Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor (not an entirely bad thing) but these guys live up to what Texans are stereotypically known for – doing things in a big way. Three Legged Workhorse is nine minutes and 12 seconds of huge. Not exactly the kind of track that would take the edge off being stuck in traffic but not all fantastic music is meant for the car.

They’ll be at Lee’s Palace on May 30th and Club Lambi in Montreal on the 31st.

Featured Track: Sports “Light”

I think one of the bigger disappointments in my dad’s parenting life is his son’s (me) complete disinterest in sports. Soccer? Nope. Baseball? I could park myself in left field for an inning or two. Hockey? Sure, as an alternative to jail maybe. This is about to change. Toronto’s Sports have just finished polishing tracks with Noah Mintz (see Death From Above 1979, Broken Social Scene) for their upcoming album. Now I can say I like Sports and not be lying.

Time Dilation: Harald Grosskopf’s So Weit, So Gut

Harald Grosskopf‘s So Weit, So Gut from his first solo venture LP titled “Synthesis” (1980) offers the perfect ambience after a night of hard boozing.  Mellow yet driving, this and a super strong cup of coffee will help you get through today’s slog.
