    Cloud Nothings – Attack on Memory

    So good that Steve Albini, down for production duties, played Scrabble on his i-pad for the entire recording session – and the main man Dylan Baldi was only 20 when this came out. I’m tempted to stop there, so I will. More at

    Euros Childs – Summer Special

    So to my hero Euros Childs. His website is called the National Elf, and like our revered health system Euros is an underfunded national treasure capable of giving strength and healing all wounds. Ahem. More at

    Donnie and Joe Emerson – Dreamin’ Wild

    There’s quite a story to this record – which you can see via the link below. But whatever the history – and it is pretty amazing – this collection of teenage dreams from 1979 stands on its own two platform-booted feet.
