look. i'm a human being and dumber yet, i'm a public figure. if you're lucky enough to be either of the aforementioned, then not only should one stay clear of saying or writing hurtful things, one should actively work against feeling comfortable, thinking hurtful thoughts. given that black culture consistently finds itself at the butt end of so many offensive "outsider" jokes, I should be way, way more sensitive (after all, who's zooming who). I for one, should never allow my cultural bias to take precedence over my "examined life" (clunkers be damned). i know the whole...
CHVRCHES (part of this year's Absolute 100) released one of my favorite albums of the year earlier this week and that got me to go "like" them on Facebook. This led me to seeing a note the band just posted asking people to stop sending them disgusting and sexist messages on their Facebook page. It disturbs me that anyone would have to ask people, who are apparently using their real names if they're on Facebook, to not act like complete morons. End rant: pick up the album (or stream it on Rdio). It's damn good.
A lot of you are asking for a "return to Kingdoms"... A lot of you are going to be quite happy with this new record.

We keep getting reports of people ordering "Keep It Going" and "It's Not The End Of The World" on vinyl from Hang Tight Records and never getting them.

Again we apologize to anyone who may have lost money, from this.
Owel have released a new song entitled "Death in The Snow" (featuring Kevin Dye of Gates) on Facebook. The band's new album will be released on January 18th, 2013. Be sure to check this out, this is a band you don't want to sleep on.
If Lacey Caroline (Ex-The Best Week Ever) gets over a 1,000 likes on Facebook she will release some new goodies for you, maybe even a song. So if you haven't checked out her solo page, you should do so.
