I just got a record in the email and it turns out it is a new thing from Howard Hamilton III, who some of you may remember from issue #3-5 of Hit it or Quit it, the original "Karate Shirtveste", and the man who taught me to play "We Got The Beat".

Minneapolis people already know all about it, but hello rest of the world, RED PENS. This record is so good. And scuzzy. But the songs! RIYL Times New Viking, Eddy Current S.R., that drifty My Bloody Valentine veering guitar sound. But pop!

I. Am. Into. It.

Today is filled with great music and prospects for 2010. Dontcha think?
