Chocolate Grinder Mix 30
“Jesus Built My Bicycle”
A cursory glance at the tracklisting for this edition of the Chocolate Grinder mix series should reveal to you that this has nothing to do with either Ministry or Hot Rods. Rather, this is a mix that remembers Jesus at his most hippy, drinking and laughing with his loin-clothed, sandal-clad brethren into the wee hours of the morning, cheers-ing to mercy and love. Here’s to warm hearts, open minds, and the effort to see that everyone has a good time for as long as possible. We’re all stuck here together, with only one planet and one life to call our own. Let’s make the best of it and give everyone on earth the opportunity to make the best of it themselves. Support fair trade, equal rights, and free hugs!

The Poison Control Center
The Poison Control Center’s latest, Sad Sour Future, is due May 18 on Afternoon. It’s a double LP, friends. Actually, your friends with the Chocolate Grinder, right? If not, follow us on MyFacePlace now!
This is one of those tracks that’s far more than the sum of its parts. Simple drums, guitar, airy vocals, a plodding rhythm — it all blends into some otherworldly downer anthem. Hopefully the magic here can be recreated on a full length.

Hey, a track from New Jersey’s Mount McKinley. These guys are working on a as-yet untitled EP, so “Backslide” is pretty fresh off the burners. Support unsigned artists, and all those over 40: check out what hot new rock music sounds like in 2010!
