Boss Stuff on the Interwebs: Wednesday Links 23/03/11

  • A "lost" album from David Bowie--who, along with champagne and jelly beans, is the closest thing I have to religion--is now available thanks to the twin miracles of the internet and theft. Electric Comic Book let me know.
  • Stereogum has a "Recipe for Radiohead", including the correct proportions of "refrigerator magnet poetry" and "empty spaces where guitar used to be." Actually, it's originally from The Daily but I'm not buying into that wannabe-hipster malarkey. Even if I do miss those guitars.
  • Neon Filler is at 50-41 on their super-duper list of the top indie/alternative albums of all time. This week includes, The Kinks, The Pretenders, and Calexico.
  • After the two recent earthquakes in Christchurch, local label City Kids Records sneaked into one of the condemned buildings to record four local bands. The Devil Has the Best Tuna reports on Gigglepop, Sleeping with Students, and more.
  • Aquarium Drunkard calls Smoke Ring for my Halo Kurt Vile's "best record yet". You should at least check that out.
  • Edwyn Collins, he of the eternally awesome Girl Like You, is back and has teamed up--however unlikely it may seem--with The Drums (among others). Andrew Evans Talks at You digs it.
  • GROUPLOVE's Don't Say Oh Well was Song of the Day over at You Can't Hear It on the Radio, where they describe it as "an adrenaline shot in  music form". They also describe the band's sound as "loose (and) barely keeping it together", which means I need to find a new title for my autobiography.
