Voxtrot Covers And News
Voxtrot's Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives EP is currently one of my most favorite releases so far this year and just like everyone else, I have dying to hear some more new stuff. Well, on May 15th "Warmest Part of the Winter", a previously unreleased track will be released on Darla Records' Little Darla Has a Treat For You V24. I think this track has already appeared on a few radio sessions if I'm not mistaken, but it will be nice to hear a completed recording of it. The boys are also planning their first UK release, which wil be a one-off, UK only 7-inch single on Full Time Hobby Records for "Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives" b/w "Rise Up In The Dirt".
Probably the best news of all is this, and actually it's not so much news as it is an awesome secret: Being the awesome people they are, Voxtrot have gone and added a "secret vault" on their website, that can only be accessed after a little bit of careful snooping. Currently the boys have filled said "vault" with some great covers that they have done recnently. Check em out!

Now go! Go and find the vault, it's more fun to find it yourself, than for me to give you a link.
Stereogum covered Beirut's show at the Knitting Factory in NYC and took some nice photos. I'm really dying to see this kid live now. If you still haven't heard Gulag Orkestar you better get on that, beforePitchfork gives it an ungodly high rating and then we can't listen to it anymore. jk kids, jk. Stumble It!
