I've made it quite known lately how much I love Matador as a record label. They've got a couple new releases coming up that I'm pretty excited about: Jay Reatard's Watch Me Fall and Times New Viking's Born Again Revisited. I already posted the first track off Watch Me Fall (due out August 4), and now another one has been released into the wild. "Wounded" has an entirely different feel from "It Ain't Gonna Save Me", and that's not a bad thing. "Wounded" presents the pop side of Reatard's music genius a bit more, and it's a fun little ditty. "No Time No Hope" is the first single from Times New Viking's upcoming September 22 release, and it's fucking awesome. TNV are really taking the lo-fi stuff to new levels and proving that it's not just a couple distorted chords to fool you with.
