Here's a brand new What Made Milwaukee Famous video for the song "Sultan" from their soon to be released sophomore LP What Doesn't Kill Us (Barsuk 3.4.08). Lots of fencing going on in this one and you'll probably all recognize the villain at the end.
What Made Milwaukee Famous play Emo's outside stage (tickets) on March 7th with The Lemurs, Black Before Red, and Loxsly.

You may recall the name Eattapes from my post a few months back about a free Panda Bear live DVD that Mike at Eattapes had put together. Well if you think that free Panda Bear DVD is all they've done, you've been missing out. I recently discovered that Eattapes archives alot of their videos over at Stage6. If you've never used Stage6 before, its a video sharing site, like youtube or dailymotion, that utilizes the divx web player to allow for really high quality, long length videos to be posted (note: Using this site requires downloading and installing the divx web player. Be careful because when you install this it will prompt if you want to install the yahoo toolbar, which I hate. Consider yourself forewarned). This is the perfect place to check out the high quality product that Eattapes creates. There are over 100 videos for your perusal at Eattapes' Stage6 page . Below are a few of my favorites. Make sure to stop by Eattapes main page often for the great Philly shows they put up all the time.

I was a really big Interpol fan after just one run through Turn On The Bright Lights and have remained a fan through all the subsequent albums and tours, but the one song in particular that made me absolutely fall in love with Interpol is the song "Specialist" from their Interpol EP. Technically the band's third release after two seperate printings of the band's Precipitate EP (if you can find a copy of this with the pink lettering consider yourself lucky), the Interpol EP featured two early versions of eventual Turn On The Bright Lights tracks "PDA" and "NYC". Closing out the three song EP is "Specialist". I can remember back to Interpol's sold out Emo's outside show a few years back, standing in the snow (that's right snow) right at the front of the stage, and seeing that "Specialist" was on their set list. I have never been as excited to hear a song played live. "Specialist" instantly grabs you with the throughly awesome opening lines;
"You make me lose my buttons
Oh yeah, you make me spit
I don't like my clothes anymore"
I couldn't tell you why that opening 3 lines grabbed me so, or how the remaining 6 minutes of the song have remained some of my favorite minutes of any song, but they have, and they continue to be.

Here's some new Tapes 'n Tapes to tide everyone over until their new album Walk It Off comes out on April 8th. Hang Them All finds the band picking up right where they let off at the end of The Loon. I don't foresee any sort of Sophomore slump here. Tapes 'n Tapes will be in Austin for SXSW so keep an eye out for where they are going to be playing while they are here.

Animal Collective recently recorded a Take Away Show for the folks over at La Blogotheque and it may be their best yet. I love how they can turn something so disjointed and slowly twist and morph it until all of a sudden you are sucked into the most magnificent and unexpected melody. Truly refreshing. Check the videos out below.
