As much crap as we give Pitchfork, I plan on going to their festival this summer, because it's very inexpensive and has a DYN-OH-MITE lineup. I have to say I'm extremely excited to see Built to Spill, and therefore have been sneaking them into my heavy listening rotation when I get a chance. I've also been listening to similar sounding bands, including more bands off Up records, the best being 764-Hero. Here's a little ditty from the boys.

The big video of late has been the new Animal Collective video for "Summertime Clothes," which we already featured. So we're going to continue the AniCol trend, but add some additional videos for your viewing pleasure. I wanted to post "Peacebone" because a) it's a great song and b) it's one of the weirdest things I've seen. Until I saw the next video. The second is a short student film starring Noah Lennox (Panda Bear) as a person obsessed with fish. If you're looking for an odd time suck, look no further. And finally, we can't mention AniCol and videos together without posting an f/k favorite (ok, just Donovan and I) : the live version of "The Purple Bottle" with Doctess.
