Elsewhere: Fake Swedish and the dB's

Various factors are keeping me from posting much at the moment, but I'll try to keep the vital signs alive. Today, don't miss a fine post over at Moistworks tracing the evolution of covers of Jacque Brel's "La Chanson de Jacky", including a version by Chapel Hill's psych-pop Fake Swedish. Their debut LP, Get Correct, was released on Demonbeach Records last month (buy it here). Here's a piece from the Independent in the aftermath.

Also, from a few days ago, catch an old dB's b-side over at Little Hits. "Darby Hall" is from the era of the first post-Stamey dB's album, 1984's Like This. The original band has reunited and recorded several tracks -- somebody please sign them and release the album!
