Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

La Guerre Des Tuques

As mentioned before, I've been slammed here and more reviews of some of the latest albums I've received will be up shortly, along with a new VU Series.

I posted earlier, Valentines Day in fact, about the band The Diskettes, well David Barclay of that band, members of Parka 3, and friends have created a new band called La Guerre Des Tuques and they have just released their first lp. This S/T effort is described by Asaurus as "Musically, La Guerre des Tuques is rather void. Attempts were made towards The Make Up, The Montage, and Friend's era Beach Boys, while successes were found mostly in the vein of a moody and sullen Ohio Express or a technically improficient and thematically limited Aja-era Steely Dan."

Beach Boy harmonies are ever present and if you liked David's voice before, then you'll love it here. Check out the first single below and two others from Barclay's site, and stay tuned for more. I'm pilling up here.

    i love GDT! i actually got to sit in on a practice of theirs in Montreal once. can't wait to get the album from Asaurus.. it's been recorded for a while. they are mostly broken up now, though, i am pretty sure, since david is in san diego and most of the others are back in mtl.
