1. Bexar Bexar - Quite a pretty instrumental track. I just had to lead off with it. A cleansing, soothing effect. I like it.

2. Cardia - I don't totally love it, but... Mike Harbin's new label Silverthree put it out, and it's an indie rock supergroup of sorts, including Mr. Charles Scott. Gotta love those two facts!

3. Bear vs. Shark - This just made me sad for all of those great punk / pop punk bands like Weston, Lifetime, Plow, Sinkhole, Christie Front Drive that should have had hits but didn't.

4. Coheed And Cambria - The Detachment Kit just did a bunch of dates with them. I haven't seen them live, but... i must say... I don't get it. At all.

5. Cex - Intriguing new Cex album. On one hand it's really hard to like, and on another hand it's really mesmorizing.

6. Need New Body - I like the intro / build-up in this one more than i like the entire song, but... still... it's an enjoyable listen.

7. Grand Champeen - Austin's power-pop / indie-rock throwbacks put out a record. I haven't heard it yet, but i grabbed this mp3.

8. Dismemberment Plan - From the remix / farewell album. I went with the Cex remix, since i included the other Cex song.

9. Your Enemies Friends - From the Buddyhead "Gimme Skelter" comp. Not to be so lukewarm about everything this week, but... this week i tracked down a bunch of things that "i've been meaning to listen to". None of which really blew me away, but... it is truly what i've been listening to...

10. The Evaluation - I think this might be the first wave of Detachment Kit inspired bands. from chicago, and they have even lengthier song titles that the DKIT. I didn't even know that was possible. i like the song, too.

11. The Ladybug Transistor - Sounds like classic John Denver, almost. And that's a VERY good thing.

12. The Autumn Rhythm - I don't know anything about them, except that they are maybe from Boston. Reminds me of Scrawl and The Spinanes and something else that i can't put my finger on. But i like it a lot, that's for sure. My favorite new song on this week's list.

13. Evan Dando - Evan always did amazing live covers, especially solo. This was always one of my favorites, a Lucinda Williams cover. I have a version of him doing this somewhere that's better than this one, but this is all i could find online.

14. The Lemonheads - Was listing lots of records that i like more than The Shins "Chutes Too Narrow" the other day just to be a smart ass. one of them was "It's A Shame About Ray". this is still my favorite song from the record, and still one of my favorite songs ever.
