Notes

BY SARAH TOMLINSON

MISSION OF BURMA have finished recording their third studio album; fourth member/tape manipulator/sound engineer Bob Weston, also of Shellac, helmed the sessions at Q Division in Somerville. Due in May, the as-yet-untitled release will be drawn from 14 songs including "Good, Not Great," "Nancy Reaganís Head," and "Ridiculosity." Bassist/singer Clint Conley says the bandís playing is "stronger, more confident" on the new material, which ranges "from reductive punk bullets to post-apocalyptic disco to cartoonly epics, stopping off at the occasional socially edifying, somewhat sermonly noisegasm" . . . Burma manager and Fenway Recordings honcho MARK KATES has added to his roster of management clients British dance-punk upstarts the Cribs. Kates is managing the band with James Sandom, who also works with Kaiser Chiefs. Meanwhile, Fenway Recordings power-pop cuties UNBUSTED begin recording with PAUL KOLDERIE at monthís end; no release date is yet set. The label also hosts two of Britainís brightest new stars in the next few weeks: the Magic Numbers on Tuesday November 29 and the Subways on Saturday December 3, courtesy of their ongoing "Fenway Recordings Sessions" at Great Scott . . . Chris and Deb Mascara of eclectic hard-rockers MASCARA discovered that the quickest path to a television guest spot could be moving to Medford. They just "happened" to be at their favorite neighborhood haunt, Medfordís Danish Pastry House, when the Food Network filmed The Secret Life of . . . Pastries, which next airs November 27 at 6 pm. The band also have a new song, "Frostbite," available at www.mascaramusic.com. Described by Chris as "Queen goes to an old-timy horror flick," itís a sneak peek from a new self-produced five-song EP, Spell, recorded with Hendrik Gideonse at Indecent Music. Look for a January 20 release party at the Lizard Lounge . . . Local indie-rock quartet Joy wrap up an extensive East Coast tour Saturday at P.A.ís Lounge with a CD-release show for Devilís Blues (Shrimper Records), an album of delicate, folk-flavored rock recorded last spring and summer with Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East. CAVE IN singer/guitarist STEPHEN BRODSKY opens.
