I am going to start with a couple emails today, my man Geoff talking about yesterday’s post about some bands I am jiving on including The xx:

“I like the xx disc but I know a few people who won’t even give it a listen because of the whole pitchforkmedia thing. pitchfork giveth and it taketh away.

I thought that was a neat thought.  Its almost as if Pitchfork is becoming is a parody of itself.

I replied:

its as if them liking something is the kiss of death for a band. But I don’t care, generally if they really like something, there is something there to like. And even the records they pan, they generally write in a way that can still intrigue me. I remember when Silversun Pickups came out and Pitchfork gave it a “meh” review, they did it in a way that I read it and went, “you know, that might be something I like!”

Some feedback from a Zoner named Megan in regards to this week’s contest to win Stone Temple Pilots concert tickets…. which doesn’t have a clever name.  uh oh, bad DJ am I.  Basically I unleash the power of the FM dial and encode a “secret” message on either the left or right channel.  you need to pan your stereo right or left to hear it.  Megan is into it except… MONO stereo!  ahhhhh

“Hey! I have to say, the Stone Temple Pilots ‘beat the box office’ contest is cool, with the secret code and everything. But, I listen to the zone everyday” at work on my headphones, and it doesn’t work on headphones!! I get both messages in both ears. So, I am at an unfair disadvantage, tho I am a huge and religiously loyal zone fan!! Just sayin!”

I hope she figures it out, because today… the code is extra, extra special!

Lastly a message from local Victoria manabouttown JP Maurice.  He is part of a hip hop crew? sure crew, called The CFC and they have a new video for their song “City Drift.”  Listen for “City Drift” next week on Capital Rock City with songs from Purple Grimus, Rabbit and likely more Laundronauts/Steph Macpherson/Forestry.  Whoa, so much good new local music to get at…

Go with yourself.
