The Wiggins: Feed the Ghost 7″
Dull Knife
The Wiggins is a one man band operation. Fucked up blues kinda stuff. This is Dull Knife’s 3rd record, and The Wiggins’ first. pick it up at these fine distros: rocketreducer.com, goner-records.com, and probably bistrodistro.com and floridasdying.com once they get back to usual operation.

The Anals: Commando of Love 7″
Sweet Rot
This duo’s first and only record, out on Sweet Rot Records of Vancouver, Canada, due to half of the band’s death sometime last year. They are/were from France and played a brand of rock n roll not too far away from the sounds of the Feeling of Love, which you may or may not have heard by now. Pick it up from Sweet Rot, or other fine distros.

Love Tan 7″
Sweet Rot
They were the Pyraminds but switched up the name before their debut arrived, also on Sweet Rot. 6 songs packed onto seven inches of vinyl. Weirdo punk not unlike Factums, with whom they share members.

Dutchess & The Duke: She’s the Dutchess and He’s the Duke
Hardly Art
The D&D channel mid-60’s folk rock on this slab, out on Hardly Art, a subsidiary or something of Sub Pop. The two tracks from the severely out of print 2007 single show up here for any who missed out.

Jay Reatard: Matador Singles Series
Jay has made the leap to Matador, his first releases being 6 7″‘s, coming out once per month, culminating in a compilation LP sometime this fall. There have been four titles released so far, the latest being a split with Deerhunter, each band takes a side to cover a song of the other. Jay does Flourescent Grey, Deerhunter does Oh, Its Such a Shame. Sold out from the label directly, but they will show up in distros soon and are in stores across the U.S. now. Good luck trying to find the proceeding singles, probably a good idea just to wait for the LP now.

Gentleman Jesse and His Men
Douchemaster Records
The culmination of three 7″‘s, two of which were splits, Jesse brings it all together for an LP. The man you already know and love from the Carbonas. The cover looks like some kind of homage to Elvis Costello’s My Aim Is True. Get it now before its gone.

Jasper TX: Black Sheep
Black Sheep is Swedish experimental musician Dag Rosenqvist’s second release of 2008. Don’t expect any Tim Hardin covers, though: This is a slow, dark album full of those atmospheric whirls and pops that people love to describe through abstract metaphors.

MV+EE with The Golden Road: Astral Bleachers/Big Moment
Ecastatic Peace!
A collection of live material from one of our favorite groups of guitar loving hippies. Since, you know, there’s not enough new material being put out by Matt Valentine and Erika Elder.

Sic Alps: U.S. EZ
San Francisco based Mike Donovan and Matt Hartman (Coachwhips alum, for those who’ll be sold by such a pedigree) play some sloppy psychedelic garage rock on their latest album as Sic Alps. If you’re down for a set of hazy, lo-fi songs, Siltbreeze has the goods.

Wire: Object 47
Pink Flag
Rightfully legendary, Wire continues to make music that is uniquely theirs. Fans of the group will undoubtedly want to listen to Object 47; newcomers, prepare to work your way back here after indulging in the rest of this band’s work.
