*[theprp.com] Quicksand returned to the airwaves last night, August 22nd.

*[pitchfork.com] Throughout August, the Kill Rock Stars label has been sharing alternate takes of Elliott Smith cuts to celebrate his birthday. Following rare versions of "Alameda", "Punch and Judy", and "Angeles", the label today shares an outtake of Either/Or's "Ballad of Big Nothing", streaming above via Bandcamp.

*Perhaps (featuring former members of Red Bellows) is the latest band making it's way into the incredible Boston music scene, and their debut Volume One should having them standing out. The power trio's single track, 38 minute record is a demonstration in the possibilities of prog rock, with far our guitars and rhythms that maintain a solid sense of structure throughout. The record was produced by Michael Thomas (Grass Is Green/SuperVolcano) and should be available digitally and on cassette soon. The band are hitting the road for a tour in support of the record, and all dates can be found at the link above. Check out Volume One (stoned and with headphones was how it was recommended to me)...
