Another video for you all. This one from a forthcoming album that seems poised to be good rather than one that's been out for a while and established just how fantastic it is...
I can't speak highly enough of this record. Still wish it made the shortlist. While this isn't the image I had in my head when I first heard "Arrows" it certainly matches the music.

With the school year looming, make sure you enroll in Botany. Full length's not until the end of October on the always great Western Vinyl, but you can put the first track in your syllabus playlist now.

Winnipeg peeps, don't miss out on the Modern Thunder release show at Union Sound Hall on Thursday August 22nd. For the rest of you, just don't miss out on Modern Thunder, the new album from Peg City expatriates Grand Analog. If you need convincing, peep the first single, featuring Shad.

If you're up-to-date on Reductive Reviews, then names like Tall Black Guy, Souleance and Yosi Horikawa will be familiar to you even if the label First Word Records doesn't ring a bell or this is your first experience with the Two Syllables compilation series. Bookmark First Word Records because it's about to become your favourite new label if it wasn't already.
Former Yellow Magic Orchestra members putting the magic in this Donovan cover. Not new, but new to me and maybe to you...

Happy Friday everyone. Enjoy the weekend. I'm off to Islendingadagurinn to enjoy Greg Arcade & his Rockin' Band, Oldfolks Home and the Bokononists at the stage I'm putting on tonight. The smile on my face will get wider, but this is what put it there.
