A Form Of Paying Attention August '08 - L Swain
Hello, friends! This column is late so we’re just going to deal with the facts this month. Fact One: The new album by CSS entitled Donkey will finally be released on LP on August 5th—summer can officially begin! CSS is on tour—click here to see if they’re coming to your neck. Fact Two: Oxford Collapse is also releasing a new record on the 5th. Theirs is called BITS and you can get it here. They’ve been making all these crazy videos for this record that you can see here and they’re going to tour like crazy. Fact Three: The first installment of the Singles Club will be released on August 15th. I’ll go ahead and tell you what it is this time but from here on out it’ll be a surprise. This is it. Fact Four: I am tired of this Fact Format. Death Vessel finally release their first Sub Pop full length on August 19th. It’s called Nothing is Precious Enough For Us and you can get it here! Our buds over at Hardly Art will be putting out their fourth release on the same day called Don’t Be a Stranger by the Moondoggies. If you’re a fan of the Fleet Foxes or Blitzen Trapper you will probably like them as well. Don’t be shy—give it a listen. Hey, speaking of Fleet Foxes, those dudes are playing on David Letterman tonight (Monday 8/4)! Hey, speaking of David Letterman, our longtime publicist Steve Manning has moved on to bigger and better things (eg. traveling around the world and not working) and we will miss him dearly. Be safe, Steve, and don’t forget to pack those magic underwear that you never need to wash. Happy August, everyone!
