Dr. Dog - Toothbrush

Recorded in lo-fi , this is Dr. Dog's self-released album Toothbrush in 2002. It's lo-fi recording gives the drums a more subtle sound and catchy lyrics that sound like they were written with a bottle of whiskey on hand, it makes you go uuuuuuuuhh u u u uuuuuuuuuuh!!! laaaa tara tap tu rap taaaaap!!!


Peace! Songs For Christmas, Vol. V

For the past few years, as a holiday tradition, Sufjan has embarked on an extraordinary experiment to record an annual Christmas EP. He indulged in the project initially as an exercise to make himself “appreciate” Christmas more. It started in 2001, the year of Epiphanies, and continued onward (skipping only 2004), culminating into an odd and idiosyncratic catalog of music that has only existed in the Asthmatic Kitty archives (and on a number of file sharing sites). The recording process took place every December, for one week, usually at home, provoking collaborations with friends, roommates, and musical peers. Armed with a Reader’s Digest Christmas Songbook (and a mug of hot cider) Sufjan & friends concocted a musical fruit cake year after year, implementing every musical instrument they could find lying around the house: banjo, oboe, Casiotone, wood flute, a buzzy guitar, hand claps, sleigh bells, Hammond organ, and some tree tinsel. Did we mention sleigh bells?
