New Jay Reatard

I hate to be a contrarian, apparently people are super into that new Simian Mobile Disco single that I mentioned not liking yesterday, but I must confess… in the long line of great Jay Reatard songs, this new track falls toward the bottom for me. It just doesn’t do much.

      Jay Reatard - It Ain't Gonna Save Me

Compare that to one of my faves from his his singles collection of last year:
      Jay Reatard - See/Saw

Or this excellent track from his ’06 release, Blood Visions:
      Jay Reatard - My Shadow

Or one of my favorite tracks from last year, Deerhunter covering another track from Blood Visions:
      Deerhunter - Oh It's Such a Shame
(Jay Reatard Cover)

LivingEars Podcast Volume Four

And so it continues……

Pay special attention to First Aid Kit, Ungdomskulen, Fan Death, and oh what the hell… I love all these songs. I’m very excited to get this fourth podcast done, it seems like its been a while in the making. I have enough songs I want to share that I could do another one today. I’m debating just throwing those songs out there so you can grab them if you want them. Still debating that.
