If you can look at that picture without singing Whitney Houston softly to yourself while imagining yourself at a romantic candlelight dinner with the jesus, i'll give you $1.57. Seriously, i frickin dare you.
Sometimes i forget i have a blog, and a duty to sensually thrill your audial and occular capacities. do forgive. it's football season.
i figured i'd post with just a few new-ish bands i've been somewhat digging lately, and of course a track of the week. none of this stuff will be really surprising, but it's all good and people should listen to it.
first is Rock Central Plaza
, featuring a few members of Neutral Milk, which is of course evident in the music. Here's a great new tracked called "My Children Will Be Joyful"
next is Annuals
, who matter of factly open for Tapes N Tapes this very evening at Cafe Eleven in St. Auggie. No I will not be attending, despite partially wanting to in order to check out this band. maybe next time. They're the new craze, but one that actually warrants a listen. Here's "Dry Clothes"
then we have a jesus favorite, Larkin Grimm
, who has a new album out called "The Last Tree"...can't wait to hear the whole thing as "Harpoon" was one of the favs of last year. This track is called "Link In Your Chain"
finally, the track of the week, which is in honor of what should be one of the shows of the year, next friday, again at Cafe Eleven...the wondermongous, splendifiraneous Mountain Goats. A perfect track from a perfect album, "No Children"
g'day kids, and do stay clear of the world's biggest cockswing party, it could get ugly.
