"480 Minutes" - New GBV, Feral Future, Tower Of Light

So, umm, my garage and psych rock fascination may now be a full-blown obsession.  I actually hated pretty much all of the synth-based stuff submitted this week.  Everything from the sub-Animal Collective chant-alongs to apparent attempts at belatedly soundtracking Beverly Hills Cop, it was just one miserable synthesized Necco wafer after another.  I understand that many of the artists producing this crap are too young to have witnessed people wearing Members Only jackets without irony, or to suffer through "The Neutron Dance," but for crying out loud people: reminding those of us who were there is simply cruel.

With that in mind, today's brand new episode of 480 Minutes (Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern U.S.Time) and debut songs by Feral Future (Austin, TX), Guided By Voices (Dayton, OH, @GBVTweets), Helm's Alee (Seattle, WA, @HelmsAleeMusic), Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene, Montreal, Canada, @KevinSelection), Lost In The Trees (Chappel Hill, NC, @littband), PyPy (MontrĂ©al, Canada), The New Mendicants (Teenage Fanclub/Pernice Bros, @NewMendicants), The Noise Figures (Athens, Greece, @TheNoiseFigures), Skaters (New York, NY, @SkatersNY), Sleepy Sun (San Francisco, CA, @SleepySunMusic), and The Tower of Light (Brooklyn, NY).

And, despite my obsession, there will be a couple of new things with synths.  Promise.

yes, it sounds like "La Bamba"
