Get Son of Rose's set in hour two of this weeks show while you can. It's beautiful. Close listening will be rewarded.

Got this month's XLR8R in the mail today. Seattle reprazent in the Best of 2005 issue! There's a full page article on Decibel, which also makes the list of best live events of the year, in such illustrious company as All Tomorrow's Parties and Mutek. Orac gets the recognition that its discretion deserves, as one of the best labels of the year, up there with Stones Throw and Bpitch Control.
Jeff Samuel's re-issue release 2000 flushes gets a glowing review in the techno 12" section too.

In other Seattle-related XLR8R content, Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire reckons that the Best Venue of the year for their shows was the Paramount. They certainly looked like they were having a great time at their concert a couple of months ago. Finally, on the Incite CD which came with the issue, DJ Collage's collaboration with Ghislain Poirier, Mic Diplomat, is included. Noice!

On a tanget, my fellow kiwis Fat Freddy's Drop get some recognition as an artist of the year. Choice one, bros!
