Behind This Week’s Snobcast

Pattern Is Movement consists of two of your least hip educators, a P.E. coach and a librarian. Hopefully, these two polyrhythmic popsters will be able to quit their day job sometime soon.

On the latest album by Xui Xui, Women As Lovers, their gloomy, avant-garde poetry is more accessible than ever. Yet, you might find their live shows to be “an emotional overload.

So apparently the Thermals are changing their name to Hutch and Kathy. No, that’s not exactly true, but they have recently been pared down to a duo due to the loss of their drummer Lorin Coleman. Now core members Hutch Harris and Kathy Foster are getting back to their roots by playing a benefit gig for Portland State’s KPSU radio. Although the band Hutch and Kathy plays “ragged folk” music, the two admit that some of their new songs that’ll be preformed under that moniker could end-up on the next Thermals album. So, now the rock band the Thermals will be a folk band. Or something along those lines. Here’s an idea, why don’t you two just find a new drummer?

No wonder I’m really digging WHY?, Yoni Wolf’s old band is cLOUDDEAD. That is the shit right there. So what’s Yoni’s favorite thing he got out of being in cLOUDDEAD? Apparently, it’s the AKG-C414 microphone some label dude gave him for cLOUDEAD record with. Yoni still uses the thing and claims it’s his favorite musical “instrument” he owns.

OK, so Bradford Cox has said that the next Deerhunter album will be “more glossy and poppy” than ever before and that he wants Atlas Sound and other projects to be experimental. Could those “other projects” be along the lines of working with Karen O. on Spike Jonze’s “Where The Wild Things Are” soundtrack? Probably, but don’t fucking ask Cox about. He denies everything.

SEGUE: Bradford Cox has said that he has a project called Ghetto Cross with Black Lips frontman Cole Alexander. That should be sickness.

The Black Lips will be starring in a film about the DIY underground music scene of the 80′s. They will play a fictional band called The Renegades, based off such favorites as Husker Du and Sonic Youth. For some reason the film is named after a Beatles record, Let It Be. I don’t know why.

    How good is Julie Doiron? Desormais is such a lovely record.

    Even with Dntel’s help, I still can’t get into Why? I must be missing a chromosome or something.

    Black Lips into Black Mountain? Sneaky, sneaky!
