Phonovectra guitarist Allan is currently spending some time working on his side project called Assasin. The two instrumental tracks published so far are described as "some kind of post-rock", so if you expect another band with the rock sound of Phonovectra you'll be disappointed. According to Allan more tracks are in the making (they aren't necessarily going to sound like the first ones) and the two tracks recorded so far could very well end up being re-worked at some point as well (despite being considered finished works).

Yesterday I (finally) received some news from Danish electro/powerpop trio Ruined by Martin. New stuff has been in the making "for ages", but now two new tracks can be streamed at Myspace. Actually Somewhere is an updated version of an older track, which now is even better than before. Second and brand new track Kaiser Star is one of those typical Ruined by Martin songs, as it's immediately catchy and begging for repeated plays.
Some dude is mowing the lawn outside my office window. Once again I have the perfect excuse for not getting any work done...
J.A. recommends excellent US quartet Black Kids. I risk it all and call this 80' inspired electronic dance pop/rock with a very small twist of punk influence (and perhaps some 70's disco). Despite this "broad" description it is probably not even close to being accurate. Deservedly the band has already received plenty of bloggerlove. Great stuff! All tracks from the EP Wizard of Ahhhs.
