a little of this, a little of that


Download: The Low Lows -- "Dear Flies, Love Spider"

First and foremost, belated congratulations to Owen Pallett, Blocks Recording Club, Tomlab Records, and anyone else in Final Fantasy's corner, on the recent Polaris Prize Victory! Of course, we here at the 'Cropper can't think of a more deserving victor.

Next up, two blogs that have been entertaining us for entirely different reasons: 1) Gerard vs. Bear, is on the warpath, mowing down any and all MP3 bloggers that stand in his path. He's quite the topic of conversation over at the Elbo.ws' forum. 2) Georgia Soul offers up delicious songs from The 'Cropper's lovely home state, and as Lucas will certainly tell you (again, and again, and again if you let him) we're all for promoting some blogs that cover stuff other than your tried and true indie offerings. Hit'm up!

Finally, be sure to check out our download today, which comes from local lads, The Low Lows. I'd get into more detail on them, but it's happy hour time! They've got a show this Friday, September 22nd here in Athens, but it's a SECRET....get it?
