“Setting Sun” has the southern rock tendencies you would associate with BoH and its pulled off very nicely. “Sleep Driving” is probably my favorite track on the album. It reminds me of a indie version of “Mama I’m Coming Home” by Oswald Osbourne. I’m not sure why, but it does.
They will be playing a show with the wonderful Sera Cahoone and Denton’s own Sarah Jaffe at The Cavern on 6/22. You can get your tickets here.

But Mom, an electronic folk group from Little D, has one of the most soul stirring songs I’ve come across in quite a while. The group consists of Joel North and Bruce Blay, two UNT students. They use a lot of electronic equipment, sequencers, loops, samplers, to come up with their sound. It’s instrumental music you could give the parental units and you can both enjoy it. The Dallas Observer had a nice little piece on them recently, you can check it out here.
If you’re a fan of The Weepies or Wye Oak then you’ll like Mom.

This is visually arresting clip courtesy of Portishead. I like this song a lot better than the debut Third track "Machine Gun." The beginning reminds me of the work she did with Rustin Man on their Out of Season LP. But, then it gets more Portishead-y. Good Stuff.

The Flaming Lips - Do You Realize? (Postal Service Remix/mp3)
Excellent play Beck, excellent play. (Rock & Roll Daily)
A girl committed suicide by hanging herself on her bunk bed and the medical examiner says he found signs of the "emo movement" during his inquest. Really, sir? Really? Was this because she frequented MCR message boards and listened to their albums? That's weird because I listened to Judas Priest again last night and I almost killed myself. Because they told me to of course.
Can we get a fucking grip people? She was 13 and I'm sure she didn't feel like she fit in anywhere. A lot of kids do. But, they don't always kill themselves. She probably wanted to be noticed and people to cry for her. This is a very sad ordeal for her family and I don't really think that blaming My Chemical Romance is going to solve anything.
Sorry, this is just really stupid and I can't believe this kind of thing continues to happen. (Gigwise)

But, Fred Armisen, Elijah Wood, Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse and Steve "I Hosted Blue's Clues" Burns are in it. The trailer has aspects of it that remind me of "Eraserhead" and that kind of scares me. That movie freaked my beans back in the day. I'm sure Wayne has he typical Wayne Coyne stuff in it. If it's half as good as "Fearless Freaks" then we will be in for a treat.

They will be playing tomorrow at Hailey's in Denton with Port O'Brien.
Philip Dickey: My little brother just got "Live Through This" and I started listening to it again. I think that CD came out on April 8 (94) and that was our release date, too. I think we're all secretly in love and incredibly scared of her.
BFD: Have you played Denton before?
PD: Yes, and we stayed at someone's house because their parents were gone.
BFD: What music do you bring with you on tour? Did John bring any Garth Brooks CDs on this tour?
PD: A lot of music from our hometown. Check out our top friends on myspace.com/boris and you can listen to them. My favorite CD this tour is "Windows" by Michael Holt. He covers some piano songs by an obscure composer from Moscow. His originals are great, too. We prefer George Straight CDs, but we like Garth Brooks karaoke.
BFD: Do you think Mizzou will stand a chance in the Big 12 this year since Chase Daniel left?
PD: I only follow Missouri State women's basketball, sorry. They went to the final four twice. And I like the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals.
BFD: What's the deal with your shirts?! You only have S-M-L sizes; you be thinkin' us husky dudes want a SSLYBY shirt?
PD: That's weird. We must have sold out. There are probably a lot of husky dudes with SSLYBY t-shirts.
BFD: I think "Modern Mystery" and "Think I Wanna Die" are the songs of the summer. What do you have to say to those who disagree?
PD: Thanks. Um, I would say "You're entitled to your own opinion...but WTF?"
BFD: The sound of Pershing seems cleaner, more produced than Broom. Was that something that was done consciously?
PD: We just set up a bunch of gear and had no idea what it was going to sound like. Will and I wanted something more real and lo-fi. John and Jonathan wanted to make more of a classic sounding record.
BFD: Spin gave you a pretty favorable, if short, review of your show at the Mercury Lounge in NYC. Is that something you guys find exciting to be reviewed by a major music magazine?
PD: Yeah, because it makes our parents pay attention to us.
BFD: If you weren't a working musician what would you be doing?
PD: Shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds. I'd bat .280 and steal a bunch of bases.
BFD: Was there any particular band/thing/moment that made you want to be a musician? Or, was it just that it would be easier scoring girls?
PD: I started taking piano lessons in elementary school and I just wanted to play fast songs and be in a band.
BFD: Do you think that non-major blog coverage helps raise your profile? Do you think blog coverage in general helps raise your profile?
PD: Yes and yes. Being on a blog is like being on MTV in the 90s. Or something. I really don't know. Tom Petty rules.
BFD: Favorite band or song of the moment?
PD: "Way Up Past" by Michael Holt.
BFD: How did you come up with the bands name? It's quite a mouthful.
PD: I thought of it in high school right after Boris Yeltsin resigned. I saw a NBC news story about his wife. She liked to play tennis.
