Paul Ford has done it again. His diversions include:
Indie bands have started clapping, and electroclash groups have become ever-more reliant on the 808 handclap. The handclap in its organic glory (or simulation thereof) should insert a hopeful note, like a brisk, playful fox-terrier jumping into the middle of the stage. But repeated often enough handclaps are hell. They are the musical equivalent to tiny lizards biting off your eyebrows.

Please enjoy jwz mixtape 074. This is the second mixtape culled from the 2009 SXSW torrents. I put it together before I left, but I did manage to see five of these bands, some of them by accident...
