Consider CLICKing: new Sonic Youth sampler mp3, PJ Harvey and John Parish track leak, etc.
– It’s punk rock meets Steve Reich over @ Cardboard Records. Listen to an excerpt of Ecstatic Sunshine: Perrier (cardboard mp3) and while you are at it why not listen to some Steve Reich: Music for 18 Musicians (opening thru section II) (mp3)
– The blog named Pukekos focuses on posting primarily out of print 7″s. Well for their one year anniversary, blogger BJ Rubin (presently of Puttin’ On The Ritz) posted all the material from his first band The Angel Assassins… here. Listen: I Wish I Could Say I Was Drunk (mp3)

On 4/20 Dick Move will be releasing the debut record by Knyfe Hyts — Screming Lov b/w We Go Wanderin’. The 12″ will be available (pretty much exclusively) at their record release show in the Monster Island Basement that evening, and it will be available for free download through Pukekos for 100 hours starting that morning. We are very excited to present this record as we approved the test presses earlier in the week (they sound great!) and Zach is doing a three colour silk screen for the cover. I will be selling it at the show and handwriting each person’s name on it as they purchase it so it will be a personalized memento of the evening.
