Who Loves the Movies


The new Portastatic album is called Who Loves the Sun and it's a film score; it's in store June 6th which is coming right up, but you can order it now from Merge & get a jump on the whole thing. Probably a good idea -- if you've ever seen the mob scene typically trashing your local record boutique on an indie instrumental film score release date, you know what i mean. You don't want to get involved in that kind of melee.

On an unrelated note, i went to Louisville, KY last night and saw Bob Pollard and the Ascendant Masters tear it up in a hotel ballroom, Calexico did the same -- it was part of a non-commercial radio convention thing i don't claim to fully understand. Anyway, after the show we hit a bar called Freddie's and it was one of the best bars i've ever been to. Old, cheap, dark, quiet (even when the live music started -- at 2 AM -- it was still soothing) and awesome. Anyway, next time you're in town to visit Ali, check it out.

Freddie's! Love that place. Hopefully you got a chance to meet the man himself...

I did once. Don't remember what I said to him, but he goes, "I'm Freddie, I own the joint", in a croak that you can only imagine coming from guy like that.

Gotta love Louisville. All the bars have a great bourbon selection and they're open til 4AM. I could end up hurting myself in a town like that.

Sweet - New Porta!

I still can't stop listening to Wanna Know Girls from the Ideas for Ideas disc. Amazingly spot on- girls are so fucking smart.

The web site for Who Loves The Sun is looking great so far!

Hope y'all make it back to Texas soon.

peace,

HMK

looking forward to june sixth, although i'm a little worried about the potential melee. and not just for your new album! i’ll also have to contend with the nascar fans in wifebeaters, who will be standing in line to get the new camera obscura.
