My review of the unjustifiably over-hyped new single by Battles, as well as the oddball remix by DJ Koze, is now up on RA. Who knew Kanye West’s helium-huffing vocal samples had an impact on the experimental/rock noodler set?

Today I had to do an improbable thing: yank on a pair of long johns in snowy(!) April. Chicago, I love you, but you’ve got to get your seasons right.

Those of you interested how Booka Shade’s Chicago show went can find out at Resident Advisor, where my review is up now. Currently buried under a pile of review releases (The Academy Is? Really?) which are sucking up my writing time. Hopefully I’ll be back in the saddle later this week.

Dettmann & Ben Klock, “Dawning”
Oliver Huntemann, “Radio” (Oliver Koletzki remix)

Normally I wouldn’t mention this site’s traffic; I’m much more focused on writing and tunes than on something like hits. Here’s your but: Yesterday LWE received over a thousand page views in a 24 hour span. I’m amazed there are that many people whose tastes and Internet habits bump into my spheres of interest. But with the advent of aggregators like Hype Machine, Digg, Elbo.ws, Technorati and the always helpful Google Blog Search, our searches are more precisely attuned to our interests and connecting with otherwise unknown but no less hardworking writers/bloggers/artists and their work is more likely. Say what you want about the blogging age — your chance of having your voice heard is greater, for better or worse. For that, I have to share my excitement. Thanks for reading; I hope you stick around and enjoy the tunes.
Trentemøller, “An Evening With Bobi Bros”
Tomas Jirku, “Pohádka” [from Thomas Brinkmann's, Tour De Traum]
