What’s even stranger than our recent bout of productivity is the fact people are actually reading this shit. Some of you guys even repost these links on Facebook and Twitter and, on behalf of all of us, that is the coolest favor ever. Thank You.
Best Thing That Happened in July
– BFF’s of this blog Jurassic Pop put out the cassette release of Mac DeMarco from Russian Recording in Bloomington, IN, and it very much blew up. They were on Pitchfork and Spin and a bunch of other reputable domains. If you’re not familiar with their catalog, I recommend listening to every single fucking release. I’m not kidding you, they’re all incredible.
