Two For Tuesday

This is a modified 2 for Tuesday. Today, the Black Lips release 200 Million Thousand and The Muslims (The Soft Pack) - LP gets its repress after selling out it's short run last year. It is quite ironic that they are together today. The 1st time I heard the Muslims, I thought,

"The Black Lips much?"

The Black Lips - 200 Million Thousand
This Atlanta fivesome plays the music I love: dirty, lo-fi, garage rock. It's just a bunch of guitars with what sounds like Danelectro faux-tube overdrive veering into surf rock via the Memphis garage. Their last one Good Bad Not Evil was one of my top 5 records of 2007. I have a couple of leaked songs from this venture, sounds like they are not going to fix it if it ain't broke. I finally got to see these boys when they opened for the Raconteurs last summer in Beantown - a fun time! If you've never heard them. Check them out.
(from the last album "Bad Kids" or "Cold Hands" or "O'Katrina" are some of my favs)

Download: "Short Fuse"

The Muslims - (s/t)
I think I've said enough about the Soft Pack. These San Diego prepster garagers are coming here March 28, and I am beside myself with excitement!!!!
Get this album via InSound or illegally...

Download: "Extinction" or "Right or Wrong"

Just noticed that Black Lips comes out NEXT Tuesday.....

Guess I shoulda talked about M.Ward's new one...
