Scroll down a bit at dissing.org and you’ll find Sarah C‘s diss of pop propagandists Baxendale. Now, you might think reading this that FT would be right behind Baxendale, but the one track I heard by them seemed a bit, well, forced. According to Sarah, the ‘dale’s target audience are “those who wish – so desperately wish! that chart pop was their real safe haven with sequins and ladies but are too intellectually snobby to accept it” and that seems to make sense to me. Mind you, you can’t trust anyone who doesn’t like the Clientele.

NYLPM contributor

NYLPM contributor, AICON fall gal, and internet superstar Maura K Johnston will be DJing tonight, 6.30PM-10PM EST, on WPRB, which is some kind of communist indie rock station no doubt. It will be broadcast on the net, so if you’re in, listen. As it happens, I am in, as a strange combination of circumstances (mostly lack of money and New Years Eve being on a Sunday) finds me not at the pub on a Friday night. So I will be listening to Maura’s show and chatting, perhaps with my fellow listeners, on IM (screen-name: TomFT26). If you’re up and online, drop me a line and if I don’t know you we can have an awkward but fun exchange.

Maura will also be DJing on Sunday, between 1.30PM and 4PM EST. This show promises special end-of-year content, and is not to be missed, unless you’re in a boozer or something. (If you’re in a Philadelphia boozer, get them to tune their radio in.)

It touches slightly on the Magnetic Fields

It touches slightly on the Magnetic Fields, but basically this is just to say for anyone who cares that A Loafer’s Discourse is back from its holidays too.
