My Xbox 360 is playing up again. Might have to get it fixed.
The Kevin Devine/Jesse Lacey interview made the frontpage of ap.net.
It gave us loads of hits.
I'm not going to NFG+ tonight. It's too cold and I'm going to a friends birthday meal instead.
Also I reviewed LAB Records's 2009 Preview Sampler here.
and looks forthesound.com is dead.
Last night I didn't sleep a wink. I was up at half 8 watching children's TV. After going to the shop to buy an energy drink, I went to my interview and surprise, surprise! The job I went for had been taken and the interview was about another full-time job. I should hear from them this week. I can't say I'm that fussed if I get it or not.
Quick recommendation: Jon reviewed Kevin Devine and Jesse Lacey in NY where he is this week. Review is here. Interview is coming soon I think.
This is the opening track from the bands recent "Selective Wreckage" release. It's manly just feedback and some guy talking.
Forgive Durden - "Razia's Shadow"
The more I listen to this album, the more I like it. Stand out tracks are "Genesis" and "The Oracle" whcih features TheAudition's Danny Stevens, a vocalist who impressed me on this track more than with his normal band.
Fall Out Boy - America's Suitehearts
I think I have wrote about this track before. It's from the new FOB album which is out in a few weeks.
Weezer - Susanne
A classic Weezer b-side from a classic film, "Mallrats". I'm not a huge fan of Weezer but the stuff from the self-titled Blue album period is their best work and a great album.
Kevin Devine - Just Stay
When I saw Kevin Devine at Give It A Name in 2007. I knew very little about him and I only watched his set because Brand New were his backing bacd. Since then I've listened to one or two of his albums with this track being my favorite Kevin Devine track.
This Will Destroy You - I Believe In Your Victory
Ever since discovering Explosions In The Sky, I've become increasingly intrested in Post-Rock bands like This Will Destroy You, Envy, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, Yndi Halda and Mono.
