Meet Nestor (Part I: a sneak preview)

It's that time of year once again, folks. The first mix CD from the 2007 Toaster Talks Collection hits the shelves Friday, and the buzz is already starting to stir in the bushes.

This is the first of three weeks dedicated to NESTOR, a collection I hope you'll all embrace warmly but hesitantly - a similar embrace to the one you'd give Aunt Netty - before you fall dangerously in love with it. (And on that last point I think I'd prefer it if you dropped the Aunt Netty line of thinking).

But, because this is a sneak preview (and because I'm making my first jaunt - long-overdue - to Rock & Roll Hotel
with fresh-out-of-Africa Bill to see The Long Winters, The Broken West and Stars of Track and Field tonight), I'll just leave you with some tracks to munch on:

NESTOR (tracks 1 through 5):
01 >> Clap Your Hands Say Yeah | "Emily Jean Stock"
02 >> Voxtrot | "Soft and Warm"
03 >> Aqueduct | "As You Wish"
04 >> Arcade Fire | "Keep the Car Running"
05 >> Gianni Ferrio | "For Whom the Bell Tolls"

Whet that appetite!
