This week’s Smörgåsbord reveals a darker side of one of this blog’s contributors – a penchant for mid-to-late 90’s generock. (That’s “generic” with “rock” mashed onto the end.) In addition to another Empire of the Sun track, you’ll get more than your RDA of moderately good covers of songs by much better artists, as well as a remix of that Vampire Weekend song concerning Peter Gabriel (the first one.) Help yourself before it gets cold.
Also, on a programming note, this post marks our 50th, and it’s also been exactly a month since we started this beast. We’ve interviewed Blitzen Trapper, been threatened by Web Sheriff (which disabled our posting for a bit while our content was investigated), had the top spot on Hype Machine thanks to Death to the Throne’s MIA remix, and amassed nearly 20,000 hits. Not bad for the first month. Here’s to March and the inevitable future. We have irons in a few fires, so we’re looking forward to sharing the fruits of those labors with you. Stay tuned.
