Thanks to Jim Testa of the long-running Jersey Beat zine for premiering the “Drac / Witch” 7” from Sink Tapes. Jim says the single floats “somewhere between eighties jangle-pop and nineties slacker-rock, recalling the poppier side of Yo La Tengo.” Flattery will get you everywhere, Jim.

Our disgust with the current healthcare system in America knows no bounds. Even more so when we learned the sad news that New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain is suffering from cancer, and is seeking help from friends and fans via GoFundMe.

I’m on a big “music media is driven by publicists and small bands don’t have access” kick lately, though, and as a result I think that – even though some of the records I heard and loved this year probably reached my ears due to those very same publicists – it’s worth listing my faves in a place where people can actually read them. So:

Dromedary Al waxes philosophical on “Gondola” by Melting Hopefuls, the very first song we ever released, by the very first band we ever called “our band.” We’re reissuing the long out-of-print track digitally today, remixed and remastered by Ray Ketchem. It’s free, and it holds up damn well.
