Song of the Week 2/6/09

Robyn Hitchock & The Venus 3 - "Up to Our Nex"

I haven't been able to spend much time with Goodnight Oslo, Hitchcock and the Venus 3's follow-up to Olé! Tarantula (I only got the album Friday). But "Up to Our Nex" was available as a free preview download if you preordered the album before its February 17th release. And I definitely played that MP3 a few times awaiting my package from YepRoc.

I said it in 2006 and I'll say it again--the Venus 3 are Hitchcock's best band since The Soft Boys. I expect Goodnight Oslo to have a lock on my Top 10 for this year.
