Braid - This Charming Man

Just following up on our other Braid post from the other day. Stereo-panned twin rhythm guitars harmonically complementing each other in different registers is what a midrange afficionado like myself loves to hear, and this track's got 'em. (Come to think of it, so does this.)

Juaneco Y Su Combo - La Cumbia del Pacurro

Grateful thanks to the people at Tiger's Milk Records for peeling this off on a recent compilation. Were I a Londoner, I'd be sure to check out their restaurant too.

Bonus beats, another cut from this compilation:

In which our heroes Sheridan Dupre and Emmett continue their erudite maunderings. George Plimpton, Martha Plimpton, Michel Houellebecq, Julian Casablancas, and the Toronto Maple Leafs all make an appearance.

Apologies for the delay. (Although to my credit, I am posting this a full two days before the self-imposed summer solstice deadline.)

Part one available here.

#1 in the UK charts, nowhere on the US charts.

I wish I could go back in time and persuade David Gilmour to play the guitar solo.

Oval - Photograph

I first heard this played by Ted some years back, and it's been making the rounds over at Viva Radio. Whatever the provenance, this is a version of a song that I didn't realize I liked (the song) which weirdly gets better (the version) every time you hear it.

On a related note, you'll be relieved to hear that I finally did secure a copy of this.

Girls At Our Best - Getting Nowhere Fast

Something in the melody here has caused this to become lodged in my brain. Thought you might like to know.
