Beatles and Odd Days.

Seems like everyone has Beatles fever since 9.9.09. I haven't played the new rock band yet but have listened to the remasters which ended up being pretty impressive in my book. Tommy just sent me a couple of excellent tracks from a BBC radio show where a team was able to comb over a couple songs and isolate each track explaining the exact recording process. It's pretty incredible and worth a listen if you've got the time. I've read a lot of the explanations before but hearing the audio really makes a difference. Here is a link to the blog: http://waxy.org/2009/10/audio_analysis_of_the_beatles_multitrack_masters/

Also, after it was recommended by James Kochalka on his site I've been anxiously waiting every new episode of the animated blog MY ODD DAYS. It's the perfect combination of a daily comic blog and a deadpan animated short. It's usually hilarious and sometimes touching with a soundtrack that includes songs that the author Ben Wolfinsohn is listening to at that moment. Great stuff! Ben, if you happen to read this and ever want to use Fishboy songs, they're all yours!

finally, I am pumped the new BOAT LP comes out in two weeks.
