It really is THAT good.

I love 7″s. It’s the definitive statement from a band. Two songs (usually). Side A is the cream of the crop. A song that best defines the band. Side B can be anything.

One of my favorite things about MTV were the videos. They were windows into a band’s sound. An added artistic vision to the music.
It’s easy to remember the iconic videos, even for songs I didn’t really care for. Steve Perry’s girlfriend descending from the top of the staircase at the legendary Park Plaza (Masquerade was great this year, wasn’t it?) the cubist animation of …

From KCRW DJ Chuck P:
Formally leader of Japan’s Yura Yura Teikoku, Shintaro Sakamoto has just released his first solo album on Other Music Recordings called How To Live With A Phantom. Interesting that it’s his first, because Yura Yura Teikoku have been cranking out albums steadily since 1992. iTunes has a couple of their albums, too, if you’re interested.
The first thing you may notice about Sakamoto‘s …
