Power + Light was released last year as a free mp3 and 12" vinyl. 50 Foot Wave recorded a new EP a couple of months ago called With Love From The Men's Room, there's no release date yet. Kristin Hersh called it 'a broken record' in a recent interview, with drummer Rob Ahlers playing a toy drumkit and almost killing it. 'My guitar was actually melted, literally burned. 5 strings were left on it.'

Herzog released a great split single with Yuck last year on Transparent, the power-pop anthem 'Paul Blart And The Death Of Art' . On their Transparent debut album Search, they sound a bit noisier and less like an instant hit. It took me a while to get into the record because I was expecting 10 'Paul Blarts'. The 12" vinyl is out now.

Valentino is Long Fin Killie's second album from 1996. I think this is their best, it's more tight than the debut, the guitars are louder, the lyrics are sharper. They toured with Throwing Muses after the release. Below my 5 favourite songs from Valentino. The single 'Hands And Lips' is really really good.
