Warm & Scratchy

Not that the subsequent Beantown overreaction wasn’t amusing, adult swim, but as far as publicity campaigns go, we prefer the release of a free album of indie cuts to guerrilla Lite-Brite-planting tactics any day. The off-kilter cartoon network offers up a comp featuring the likes of TV On The Radio, Liars, Les Savy Fav, the Rapture, Fennesz, and Asobi Seksu, and it’ll only cost a few minutes of bandwith. Our two faves come from the America-baiting Canucks of BSS and Norwegian krautrock-pinups 120 Days, who leave the motorik behind for some wild-eyed post-punk.

Broken Social Scene – “Canada Vs. America” (MP3)
120 Days – “Justine” (MP3)
