Check Out The Motion Sick, Tonight... [3/10/2008 05:17:00 PM]:
Mentioned these folks already, but I was able to snag a couple of MP3s today & listen to 'em while I wait for the Phone Company Man to show up & make my telephone all better, and now I feel much more knowledgeable about Boston's The Motion Sick
and qualified to say that, yeah, they're pretty dang good.
Which is cool, 'cause they happen to be playing this very evening up at Boondocks with local space-gazers Antarctica Starts Here -- who are themselves excellent and whom I need to hear more from. I'd figured both bands were kinda in the shoegaze/space-rock vein, but that's not strictly the case; The Motion Sick are more of a straight-ahead indie-pop kind of thing, w/plenty of sarcastic sweetness & smiling melodies. But hey, there's nothing wrong with mixing up styles, if you ask me...
Anyway, here're links to the couple of Motion Sick MP3s I've run across: "30 Lives" & "Jean-Paul". Enjoy, and if you're not already planning to be at Yo La Tengo/My Morning Jacket, The Slits/This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, Nicole Atkins, Back Door Slam, Municipal Waste, & the other bazillion bands playing tonight (what the hell? isn't it a Monday?), head on over to Boondocks...
