Music Musick and Muzak
"round the world like a yo-yo walk ya dog fetch. connect four, spectacular in a scrabble session. paper airplanes turn your jenga into 9/11. we stay hungry just like hippos. counting monopoly money, we're fuckin' rich yo."
Noah23 recently gave an album of rarities from this year away via MySpace. Here's the mediafire link and I highly recommend the download. Noah23 continues to fascinate me, especially with his open admittance of how drugs affect his music and his unusual hippie upbringing [for a Canadian]. His cultural references are spot on and for those who haven't began listening to his music I suggest you do so.

Don't forget to pick up a copy of Rock Paper Scissors from thecatacombz.com or hold off until the vinyl is released. There are some really sick beats and flows, but I've still gotta recommend Quicksand to any fan of modern versatile hip-hop.
An album I never talked about this year is Dosh's Wolves and Wishes released in May via anticon. With contributions from Bonnie ’Prince’ Billy, Andrew Bird, Fog, Odd Nosdam and the usual suspects, Mike Lewis and Jeremy Ylvisaker. A FMLY review of the album will be up relatively soon, but if you haven't had a chance to check out the album it makes a great holiday gift. Visit the DoshFMLY website here and pick up some cheap CD's, vinyl and other goodies.

Don't forget to listen to Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie today. After all, it's Thanksgiving!
And lastly, Jeffrey Lewis has made a history of Rough Trade video that I highly recommend. Check it out!
FMLY isn't really that Thanksgiving festive, but we certainly enjoy a great homecooked meal. Have a great dinner everyone and if you get something out of it then more power to ya. I'll be a bit outside of New York City in Warwick romping around in the forest if anyone wants to come join. Don't forget to RSVP to our event we've overwhelmed you with HERE.
