Chris Reimer - The Chad Tape (2012)

We'd be remiss (more so than normal) if we neglected to post this collection of posthumous recordings by former Women guitarist Chris Reimer. It's kind of old news by now, but this is a collection of ambient guitar sketches that Reimer had been working on for Chad VanGaalen to release. They've now been released as a fundraiser for the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund Society

Honestly, it's a bit hard not to listen to this without hearing equal parts beauty and sadness.

Get the tape (or the download) from bandcamp.

Hot Little Rocket - This Decade (2008)

Being the suckers for nostalgia that we are, we're understandably excited about tonight's Hot Little Rocket reunion show. So, what better time to dig through the CCPS library to pull out this CDR!

We think we snagged this at the band's release party for their final, self-titled CD. We think. We have a lot of things in the archives that we're not 100% sure where they came from. Anyways, this compilation spans the band's first ten years, including tracks from their first (and only) tape (previously featured here). Hot Little Rocket are one of those bands we think should had been huge. In appeal, not girth. Although it is funny to think of a 300-pound Andrew Wedderburn.

So, maybe we'll see you at Broken City tonight for the show? We'll be the ones up front in a Rayovaq t-shirt.
