New stuff (Calexico, Dirtmusic) and old stuff (K's Choice, P. Boa, Veljanov, The Sound...), as usual.  8)

Good idea about Sonny Vincent, maybe I should get out my "Parallax In Wonderland" cd (or Sonny Vincent & Spite)...

After listening to Cheap's "Peel Sessions" (30 years old now), maybe it's time to listen to "Crossing The Red Sea With The Adverts" (40 years ago when it was released!). Will be good to hear some of the songs live next week.  8)

Thanks to our recent discussion, I've listened to some 80's stuff... e.g.

Also Iggy Pop's "Instinct" (1988), not his best album, but Steve Jones' guitar work is great and "High on you" is one of his best songs!

Lovely interview with Stuart from Mogwai (and a new track from upcoming soundtrack):

“Probably the Scottish weather. That’s probably where it comes from. Either that or the failures of the Scottish football team.” Guitarist Stuart Braithwaite is chuckling to himself as he explains why his band Mogwai make such mournful music. “Those are probably the main sources of sadness in Scotland.”

The band are currently working on a soundtrack for a secret TV project and will be releasing the score for upcoming sci-fi film KIN next month. Mogwai’s music has been largely lyric-free over the years, although they occasionally bring in a guest vocalist like Aidan Moffat and Gruff Rhys of the Super Furry Animals and sometimes have a go at singing themselves.

There is one musician in particular they’re dying to work with. “Iggy Pop would be great. That’s definitely someone I’d like to get. He’s just a really passionate singer and has a really unique voice and great energy.”

After seeing Alejandro Escovedo with Don Antonio live last year, I guess the upcoming album is a "must" for me:

Quote
True to Escovedo's nature, the upcoming album comes with a curious twist: It was recorded with Don Antonio, a group of young Italian rockers he recently toured Europe with as a backing band. He developed such a strong bond with the band leader, Antonio Gramentiere, that they ended up writing the songs for the album after riding around Texas soaking in the open landscape and eating both pasta and tacos.

"Sonica USA" is the first single off the upcoming album and the track is a loud and boisterous reflection — featuring Wayne Kramer of MC5 on guitar — on Escovedo's youth growing up in Austin when he and his brother Javier played in a punk-before-it-was-punk band called The Zeros.
