Reports

This was a request, but also, I think this is a pretty awesome release, so I'm more than happy to oblige.

Reports is a band I don't know a whole lot about. They're from Cambridge, but I've never seen them live. They don't play that many shows around here, and somehow I always manage to miss them. There's an alright garage-y scene around here, but not the sort of hipster garage stuff you find a lot of other places. I do know that Reports keep it real, playing things more on the poppy side of that genre.



I was really impressed with their 7", which came out on awesome local label Ride the Snake. No real frills, just good times. B-side is fuzzier, but A-side is my pick.

Look for the General Interest 12" coming up on Ride the Snake too!

Reports- Bill Wyman, Metal Detector

The Slits

Cut is the first record I ever bought. It fucking rules. That's it.



The Slits- Cut

Cheeky's Art of the Underground 7"

I love the idea of singles series- getting a 7" in the mail once a month = lots of fun. In reality, however, most of the time you subscribe to the series to get a couple 7"s that you actually want and then you get 10 pieces of shit in disc form. The gems you get may make it worth whatever amount you paid up front. Cheeky's Art of the Underground single is such a record.

I think I've already expressed my love for this band in every which way, and trust me, I could go on. The A side of this 7" ("Deal with It") gives you more of the 'tude from the Choke on a Cheeseburger EP. Straight-up pop punk that makes me wanna bask in the sun we had today (I wrote this a week ago- it's been raining recently... wtf happened to summer?). Messier recording than the other 7" that only adds to the charm.



"The Golden Ghost" on the flip side is a pleasant surprise. Rather than your usual pop punk jam, it's a Slingshot Dakota cover. I might leave this one to Brian, who said, "Cheeky AOTU b-side makes me want to stop writing music," and, upon discovering that the song was a cover, "i feel a little better about my own abilities now that i know it took 2 bands to create that perfection."

Outta print, but check out the Art of the Underground catalog.

Cheeky- Art of the Underground 7"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm digitizing a ton of stuff for the station this summer, so if there's anything you've seen played on my show that you want the whole record, give a holler.

Also, my show is going to be from 10-12 eastern on Wednesday nights this summer.

Dynasty

It's my 21st birthday today, so I'm giving you a real party jam to celebrate. I've been listening to Dynasty's self-titled album on repeat for a week or two straight while cleaning up the shit hole that is the RH lounge.



I don't really know a hole lot about this band or this release other than that it came out in 2003 on Tigerbeat6 and contains the drummer from Numbers. And that it's fucking catchy. You can find a little bit at last.fm.

Dynasty play really sweet dancey electropop with songs about stalkerdom and lust for people in uniforms, among others. Anyway, jam this hard for summer.

Dynasty- self-titled
