The Catch All

A new Berg Sans Nipple is about to drop and the advance press is looking good, Tiny MIx Tapes were on early on and the folks over at Pitchfork chimed in last week with a review of the full length, calling it, “unstable,” “fever soaked,” and “mallet-led,” which makes us wonder, when did PF become such big supporters of Belgian League basketball? Other blogtastic observations are coming in from Fabric and Guerrilla and Chalk. And check out this live review over at The Line of Best Fit. and these pics from the band’s ATP performance in December. Want more, go exploring on the band’s artist-driven site, Change the Shape.
Austin-bound folks check out the TL-website for the latest on catching Popup and Dave Dondero and Refried Icecream, who are playing a special gig at SX to benefit the Austin Humane Society. And those of you who haven’t read about Refried’s Denny Brewer’s work on the new Bright Eyes, you can read this Huffington Post interview with Conor to get all the groovy details. Lazy-I have posted an interview with Simon Joyner and if you want to go deeper, check out his recently posted interview over at the WFMU blog site.
