Altin Village/Mine return with the second instalment of their 'The Green Corridor' series, this time enlisting the skills of Calgary's gentle giant Chad Vangaalen and power-emo synth-pop guru Jamie Stewart a.k.a. Xiu Xiu to fill each side of wax. Chad's stuff is pretty much always worth a listen and these nine exclusive tracks are no exception. The production is a little rough and ready by comparison to his Sub Pop efforts but the songwriting quality is right up there. The man can do no wrong! Totally blown away by 'Ripped Islands' and 'Your Own Minds End' on first listen and I'll look forward to getting this bad boy home for further listening pleasure. Of course, this means I'm finally going to have to have to get to grips with the Xiu Xiu style. Greg Saunier of Deerhoof has been interacting with Stewart for a while which pricked my interest but I've struggled with his records so far. Here he uses a side of vinyl to repeat to words 'yes', 'no' and 'perhaps' many times over. There's no music here. It probably means something but I've got a real job with responsibilities and don't have the time or patience to figure out this nonsense. So yeah, nine new Chad Vangaalen tracks. BUFF!
