Art: Combination of pieces by Yuri Hasegawa / Cover of Gordon Claridge’s Drugs and Human Behaviour

Fuck everything, here’s CMGcast 133: nearly an hour of lo-fi indie rock, Japanese art-pop, solo Robert Pollard and a full-on Beatles ballad from Guided by Voices that apparently has nothing to do with Brian Epstein but does have Tobin Sprout repeating “Jesus” a bunch of times, the new band from Women’s Matt Flegel and Mike Wallace, Cyrillic Typewriter’s “music for a movie that evidently exists entirely in the composer-musician’s head” (“think slightly demented janitor in a film that combines paranormal with Travis Bickle”), Shearwater covering Xiu Xiu, a new Frog Eyes song that’ll make you want to invade something, the most beautiful song you’ll hear this year about biblical figures crawling back inside their mother, and ok, yeah, a lot of mid-tempo stuff, whatever, it’s fall, all in one goddamn mp3.

Because you’re going to have to stop listening to that new Danny Brown eventually:
