I Don't Want to be the Fool in This Game
In yet another case of me over-hyping a band that may or may not deserve it depending on how discerning your ears are, I bring you France's Prototypes (again). Sorry dude, but I can't get enough of this new record. While I can see this band being a little too, uh, "French" for some people, I love how every song kicks my ass in a completely different way.
Ici Ou Peut-Etre Demain
Congrats to Kate Grant, as you will be going to see the Prototypes live in NYC next Tuesday night. Check out the Prototypes on Minty Fresh, and be their friend on myspace.

The Late Greats has mp3s from the Guillemots' World Cafe performance that are worth a listen.
So Much Silence has a great new track from L.A. producer Belief.
Pitchfork reviewed El Perro Del Mar's new album, giving it "Recommended" status and an 8.1 rating. We've been a fan of Sarah Assbring's '60s-style pop since we first heard it early this year, so it's nice to see her gaining some critical acclaim.
