Comes With a Smile Mag (Vol. 19) and CD (Vol. 15!)

The 19th volume of Comes With a Smile features two different covers featuring Frank Black (although I guess if they were two of the same covers that would make little sense) and includes the fifteenth volume of the Comes With a Smile CD. Wacky! I think they should include extra CDs with the next issue and get caught up. Volume 15 of the CD includes songs by Richard Buckner, Sleater-Kinney, Four Tet, The American Analog Set, Laura Veirs, and Frank Black, but it's hard to appreciate them quite as much now that I have the vague feeling I should have 5 Comes With a Smile CDs!

The mag itself contains interviews with The American Analog Set, Frank Black (who questions whether there's "any demand for the Pixies to make a record. It's a live thing." He says the band is "a little bit wary" and "might still do it". I seem to recall them saying they would do it, hmph! I still think they will), Richard Buckner, Laura Cantrell, colleen, David Eugene Edwards, Espers, Four Tet, Magnolia Electric Co., Marissa Nadler, Sleater-Kinney, Smog, Maria Taylor, Tremulous Monk, Laura Veirs, and Vetiver, along with loads of reviews.

David Eugene Edwards? Solo? Gimme Gimme Gimme! Slight shame that it's him recycling the Dylan cover that 16 Horsepower used to close their 'Secret South' album but nevertheless still exciting.

"Betty", you're welcome and thanks!

Grad, three gimmes and I simply melt. Who told you?! It became a problem in dating-type situations, had to learn to plug my ears very quickly and do that "lalala I'm not listening" thing if I wasn't interested... I posted the song, as you knew I would, with that secret info you somehow acquired.
