new audio and junk.

The Golden Hands Before God [Montreal] - "Blood of November" [mp3] from debut album Here (Pop Echo). so actually the full name of the band is The Golden Hands Before God Conducts Incredible Magic Band & The Spirits. The reverbed vocals are key on this peaceful track from an otherwise country-garage psych group. "One Fine Morning" is out of the Brian Jonestown lesson plan and not just cause i saw them last nite.
Atomic Tom - [NYC] - new tracks, including "Take me out" (not the Franz song) are at their myspacey. The pop-rock is more than accessible and the heart-on-sweater sleeve lyrics are easily identifiable.
Camphor - [Upstate NY] - Camphor "has historically been used in religious ceremonies, as a moth repellent, as an ingredient in fireworks, for the embalming of the dead and for medicinal purposes." The songwriting of Max Avery Lichtenstein harnesses the meaning. The dark, pirate chant of "Castaway," from the album Drawn to Dust (Friendly Fire records) comes with a brilliant video.
