In Case You Missed It: Week In Review

Well, it was a long week for sports. World Cup action, Tennis action (understatement), NBA draft action, NHL draft action. Lotsa stuff. OH, Jamie’s gone. But only for a month! Unfortunately, he’ll probably be missing the Siren Festival on Coney Island, which we still intend to cover as voraciously as last year (we’re teaming up with an awesome photographer, Hilary J. Corts – check her stuff out here). So while you wept over the World Cup, Jamie, or your rent-a-friend, here’s what you missed this week on Knox Road.

*Pick of the Week*
Culture Bully: “Saved By The ’90s: A Maple-Flavoured Blast-From-The-Past” Chris goes back to the 90s and jots down some memories of his teenage listening experience for a collaborative mix with Aaron from Tsururadio. (Oh, and check out his amazing new links page, which he probably started working on in the 90s.)

*MP3 of the Week*
Tame Impala – “Solitude is Bliss” [MP3] We haven’t talked much about these Aussies (apologies), but rest assured, we’ve fallen in love with them just as much as everyone else. If you don’t know them, start here. Then go get their debut full-length, Innerspeaker.
