Synthpop.

Blogging is gonna be thin on the ground this week as I'll be moving back to Noo Yawk City this weekend, more specifically, my old stomping grounds on the eastern edge of Queens. Feel free to drop a line.

Both of todays tracks are definite Retro. One firmly entrenched indie scenesters who should be making it, and one pack of kids who seem primed for radio success.

I am The World Trade Center - Love Tragedy I was shocked and saddened to learn of IATWTC lead singer Amy Dykes being diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.It's doubly horrible for such news to come right in front of what absolutely would have been the duo's breakout record. I only hope that Amy has a swift and full recovery and that the she, and IATWTC come out on top from all of this. The music is certainly strong enough, a bubbling concoction straight out of the 80's, full of deep synth grooves and a bass line right out of the new wave. This is not what people think of when you mention lap-pop, though, by a strict definition, it most certainly is. Here's praying that Amy is strong enough too. [Buy I am The World Trade Center's previous albums at Amazon.com!]

theSTART - Shakedown! The Start are on tour with The Offspring right now. Okay, now that I've gotten that bit of "this is a band that wants to make it big and maybe might" out of the way, I have to say that this, the title track off of their 2001 debut is a fantastic song. Copping a bassline from the Cure, and vocals from Debbie Harry's angrier moments, The Start are the sort of pop friendly dance punk that Stellastarr* were only the beginning of. If the Rapture were the sound of the revolution, and all revolutions in music are eventually commodified into a radio friendly form, well, the Start have done it. But they really couldn't have done it with a better sound, I must say. For all it's insipid lyrics, the song is catchy as hell, and really quite good. If this is where radio rock is headed, than bring it on. It's light years ahead of.. say... The Offsprings latest. [Buy Shakedown! at Amazon.com!]

Other News:
Eric Idle writes love song for FCC. It is not playable on the radio ever. Also probably NSFW without headphones.

33 Revolutions Per Minute is a new kid on the block with a great design.

The Bush Game, from the makers of the Legendary Emo Game. NSFW, by the way, and you had better have a solid hour free to get through the whole thing. It needs a savegame feature. [Via The very slickly redesigned Music For America]

The Comics Code as Rock opera

The Mountain Goats. I couldn't have put it better if I tried.

Out of Iraq. The Easy Way.
