Good Tuesday to you all!

I hope today finds you well. If you're not well, then maybe buying some new music will help you out! You know, a little "musical retail therapy".

Today on the show, I'll have some samples from the following record albums that are available for purchase. 

  :: PS I Love You - Death Dreams
  :: Cedar Park - Way Back Home
  :: CA Smith - You've Got A Lot To Learn
  :: International Zombies of Love - S/T

What releases are you most looking forward to? What has been your favourite release this year, so far?

Here's CA Smith getting his new vinyl, hot off the press!

(You should read this!)

I really can't wait until I have my life back to myself and I can think about pleasurable things again.  Things like this being one of those things.  I know that I have thought "I can't wait for that new album", but I'll be damned if I can recall them now.  Almost there, a couple of weeks left....

Sigur Rós

Kestrels

Metric 

Wintersleep

Purity Ring

What has been your favourite release this year, so far?

This is a tough one but I think I'd have to go with Attack On Memory by Could Nothings. That album is just a full out visceral attack on the senses.

MrF, 106, pj said something like "this tune sucks" when it had been a request, tied in with the death of a drummer, and Grant (and others) got on his case (as usual) -- his comment was coming from left field (he didn't know of the request), but people -- some staff in particular -- seem to think that negative comments should not be made, or should be self-censored or something.

also assessments are designed in some way to exacerbate your pain so we know whats what.. but you should then treat the pain and send the person off with a lolly pop or something .. not in worse condition than when you started.

My dad used to see a chiropractor for his migraines. It never really lessened the frequency or severity of his migraines, and it cost a lot of money. I don't know what chiropractors are for, but they don't seem to do anything that a couple of T1's and a few hours of sleep can't handle (at least for migraines anyway). Sometimes when I do stretches, my joints wil "crack." It feels pretty good at the time, but it's still not medicine.

@176 - yeah I've had migraines too and not sure if the chiropractor would help that for me.  The basic function of a chiropractor is to help improved the alignment of your body based on your spine.  I find it weird that you would say that chiropractors are a scam based on very limited experience and knowledge of what they do.

Sip on the day's specially-crafted bacon cocktail, or choose from a host of reasonably priced beers, craft brews, wine and well drinks...." (Facebook Baconfest Happy Hour Link)

From the New York Times, a vividly-written article on Maurice Sendak.

An example: "Roundly praised, intermittently censored and occasionally eaten, Mr. Sendak’s books were essential ingredients of childhood for the generation born after 1960 or thereabouts, and in turn for their children."

Another: "His visual style could range from intricately crosshatched scenes that recalled 19th-century prints to airy watercolors reminiscent of Chagall to bold, bulbous figures inspired by the comic books he loved all his life, with outsize feet that the page could scarcely contain. He never did learn to draw feet, he often said. "
