New favorite song.

Posted By on Tue, May 1, 2007 at 12:18 PM

Hi.

I didn't go to the Monkey House to see Oak last night — too much crap to do to prepare for DC, and I didn't think I could spare the hangover. Was it awesome? Maybe they can play my going-away party. Let's have it at Greg's new house, wink.

My G5 is in the shop, and I feel naked. Luckily, I have a new favorite song to help me get through this dark period.

The band is Von Spar. They used to play electro-industrial-pop. Not no more. Lately they've been consumed by EEEE-VILLL. The new EP is called A. XAXAPOYA, and will come out via Tomlab.

Guess what? The press release compares 'em to krautrock. For once, it's not bullshit.

There are only two songs on the disc, so you need to buy it. I think it *drops* in June.

Seriously, this is what it sounds like inside my head:

Von Spar —"XAXAPOYA"

The new Music Editor has been chosen, and will be unveiled soon. It'll be a lot like that scene in The Rocky Horror Picture Show when Dr. Frankenfurter unwraps Rocky.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
