Teaching the Indie Kids to Drink Again.

The Burdocks - Battle of the Band - The Burdocks are from Canada. I lost their press release, so I can't really hide behind the music writers classic shield of Biography this time around. Instead, I'm stuck talking about the music. And such music! The Burdocks produce Indie Rock in the oldest sense of the word. Close to the chest, cathartic, melodic, jagged pop riffs and anthemic choruses, produced on old tape decks with passion and energy than skill. Battle of the Band is like all 4 Guided By Voices song templates smashed together into one epic jangled masterpiece. Alternating between slow, sparse despondent verses and a rousing chorus full of spiky riffs and fist pumping power. When the song dissolves into a wall of noise and feedback, it slowly mutes itself, recovers some melody, and rediscovers it's starting point - rebirth rather than death, it's an excellent finish to the Burdocks self-produced debut. They're working on an LP in a studio now, and I have high hopes for it.

The Burdocks - Save The World - Save the World hews a bit more closely to the Alien Lanes/Isolation Drills - era Guided By Voices formula explored in places elsewhere to the album, to excellent effect. Catchy power-pop hasn't sounded this good in ages.

Saturday Looks Good To Me - Alcohol - You may be wondering about the title of todays entry. Well, for those of you that don't know, today is my 21st Birthday. For those of you that aren't from the States, 21 is the legal drinking age here. So I'm offering up this probably overplayed Saturday Looks Good to Me song, as Part One of my Birthday Gift To You. It's a great song, distorted buzzsaws of 60's guitar, rich, melodious girl-pop vocals, sound as if they're coming out of the distance, perhaps truly being sung from that Liquor Store on the Ocean Floor. it was a tough choice between this song and the New Pornographers "Slow Descent Into Alcoholism". I went for the one I figured fewer people have heard.

That brings me to gift #2 for you guys. In the old tradition of GIVING gifts on ones birthday, I'd like to give you all a coupon for 10% off of ANYTHING you'd like to buy from Just enter the coupon code "indie dance" at checkout, and 10% will be deducted from your order. And if you click through from here, I'll get a cut. Which would be nice. They have a lot of great music for you to buy over there.

A few other Notes and Things.

Blogtheque is one of the best French Mp3 Blogs on the net, and now they've put together a fantastic bilingual mix CD entitled Point D'Ecoute full of great MP3's, including one previously featured TTIKTDA track. You should all go download it, because it is good.

Also, a quick note since a few people have asked about RSS Enclosures and Podcasting and such: TTIKTDA will never be Podcast. I post copyrighted MP3's here, and not always with permission. The nature of what I do is inexorably tied up in attachign the writings to the songs. Please, don't request just the music as enclosures. It isn't going to happen.

Opsound is a killer new label that is releasing all of their music under a Creative Commons liscense, and will be putting out their first release, by Catalpa Catalpa next week. You can listen to the whole thing online, but you should buy it because the packaging is fantastic. If you are in New York, you should come to the release party next week:

More Kleptones and more great music on Monday.

I'm off to get hammered.

Happy Birthday-remember to pin a dollar on your shirt! (or is that something people do in the South?)

Happy birthday! You run the best mp3 blog in town, kid. I wish I could find others that had a similar style and consistent quality.

happy birthday. here's hoping you drink a little too much, but not way too much (you really should get a little too drunk on your birthday, especially the 21st one).

I like Alcohol. I mean the song. And the drinking too, I must admit. Nothing to be ashamed of, is it? Oh, is it? Saturday Looks Good To Me is a band I would love to hear some more of (so far I only know 'Lift Me Up' and this song). Thank you for pointing me in their direction again.

I stumbled across your blog and it is really interesting. What is even more interesting is the fact that you have mp3s from the Burdocks, who reside in my hometown of Halifax. I am glad someone sees how great they are. Airplane Tracks is actually not their debut, they put out Lips and Assholes(EP) and I Have a Million Friends(LP).

Based on your description, I kept expecting this to rock out, but it never did somehow. Weird. Belated happy birthday, at any rate.

Oh wait, nevermind, there it is. Rock! But the parts in between! Eek. They make me want to skip past. Maybe I'll do an edit.
