3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  Russian Circles - "Mladek" (The Chicago post-rock instrumentalists return with Empros, their new album out now on Sargent House.  The trio mixes in shadowy Black Metal extremes with propulsive Krautrock on their heaviest album yet.)  


2.  Peggy Sue - "Cut My Teeth" (Six-minute opening track sets the tone for the London/Brighton-based trio's louder, electrified sound on their sophomore album Acrobats, out now on Yep Roc Records. Singer/guitarists Katy and Rosa along with drummer Olly abandoned their critically acclaimed acoustic folk for an excellent blast of Sonic Youth and Breeders style early 90's punk.)


3.  Dntel - "(This Is) The Dream Of Evan And Chan" (Sub Pop is re-issuing an expanded edition of Jimmy Tamborello's 2001 album Life Is Full Of Possibilities which was originally released by the Plug Research label.  Most known for The Postal Service, his collaboration with Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, this song, featuring Ben was the spark for that project.  The 2-disc or LP set includes new remixes as well as B-sides.)
