The main thing on this blog for the next few weeks will be the restoring of the older posts from Blogger. Since I plan to remove all non-working links to MP3’s from all these posts, this will be a very time-consuming work, so new music-tipps will be put on the backburner for a while. But on the other hand, reviewing the old posts might also end up in follow-ups with actual news on past artists featured on this blog. I will just go with the flow and see what happens.
First of all, I’ve created a contact-site; you’ll find it on the right-hand side under “Pages”. Please read the guidelines first if you want to send me promo-mails!
More layout-changes will follow as well once I’m seeing through WordPress… there are still a lot of options that puzzle me a bit, but I think I’ll manage. Keep your fingers crossed (and if you have any hints or tipps, please let me know!).

The Mary Onettes – Dare (MP3)
Also the new Raveonettes-album In And Out Of Control impresses me. It’s less heavy guitars, but more melodies again. Shame that summer is almost over; this would have been a great soundtrack for it! ViceRecords offers two songs from the album:
