Just discovered this one man band with this incredible power pop record from 1979. It is just so catchy which at the end is the key factor of a well-trodden genre. It also sounds bloody great, especially considering everything was done by this guy, who apparently released a few more records and moved to Grammy winning status for other people.
I don’t know where else to put this, but BRMC’s debut was on sale on vinyl on Amazon, so I pulled the trigger to buy it. It just arrived today and…fuckin’ bezos sent me an Ataris album. An ATARIS ALBUM. Capitalism must be crushed at all costs.
I woke up this morning singing a track called Set Your Sorrow Free by Howie Payne (ex-Stands). I haven't heard that track since 2008. And it hasn't even been officially released - I think I must have heard it on his Myspace page and ripped it with Audacity at the time. And my brain for some reason decided to regurgitate it today.
It's in my old hard drive back in Rome, and for the love of god, now I can't find it online. If any of you happens to have it (and I know some of you do) would you be so kind as to send it to me? Ta muchly.
Thanks for looking Karl - then I guess it was one of the tunes that didn't make it into your The Freewheelin' Howie Payne. I'll call my brother and ask him to go back to my house and have a look on my old HD. I know it is in there. I'm sure he will be delighted to waste a considerable part of his weekend helping me find a 15 year old unreleased song by a largely forgotten singer!
I gotta say I'm a weird Real Estate fan, they're too plain and monotone so I feel they don't have a great record but think my favourite is their debut which is bookended by 2 amazing tracks. Then Atlas and Days don't do much to me (just fine), while In Mind has 2 or 3 tracks that I love.

I am now currently listening to Girls - Girls (2009) album.
I haven't listened to this one in probably 13 years lol - I was reading an article about DIIV and how they went to San Francisco to work with Chet JR White and when I looked into who he was, he was in the band Girls and died in 2020. So I've now gone down a rabbit hole on this.
Pitchfork gave this album a 9.1 (the sophomore album actually got 9.3) - I wonder how many albums have scored this high in the past 14 years. BARNY, find out please.
