Frank- I recommend setting your clock forward tonight or you'll be really confused for the next 6 months.
Ryan- Here are my recs for this week.
Greg - I recommend Liam and Me and Tokyo Rose.
Paul - The Olivia Tremor Control. They were in the same collective as Neutral Milk Hotel and Apples In Stereo; they sound like late-Beatles to me.
Rohan - This week I had Martin from Boys Like Girls join me for some finger-lickin good recommendations.
Greg D - My recs are here.
Jon F - My recs can be found here.

Cell phones and laptops do it automatically, so I'm set. I don't use anything else.

I actually posted the first part and then saw my post count and edited it.

Are you sure? My Verizon LG hasn't done it yet.

Yeah, anything controlled by satellite is supposed to do it automatically. For instance, when I fly from the east coast to the west, my cell phone automatically sets my time to three hours earlier.

My reccomendation is that NCSU needs to start looking hard for someone worthy to replace Coach Sendek. That was a stupid mistake letting him go. I am not one of the fans that was pleased by this. I also reccomend my body quit hating me and pine trees stop existing in NC, but that aint happenin.

I recommend two albums that are due out April 11th

Birdmonster: No Midnight
Their three song EP was reminiscent of Modest Mouse in a lot of ways and while that influence is still apparent, you will no longer think of them as a Modest Mouse tribute band (that is, if you ever did). You can check out a few songs at www.myspace.com/birdmonster where you can also pre-order the album for $10. Very well done indie rock.

Josh Ritter: Animal Years
I don't think I've gotten any negative feedback from the people on this site who have streamed his new album. Rohan posted a link to where you can stream Animal Years (it's also below). If you're a fan of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash, Nick Drake should probably listen to this. http://www.flashenhanced.com/joshritter/

Great Lake Swimmers: Bodies and Minds
I've heard comparisons made to Iron & Wine, which was enough to get me to take a listen.

Band of Horses: Everything All The Time
I've waited for this album since they signed to Sup Pop and toured with Iron & Wine. Thankfully, it didn't disappoint. My favorite release to be released so far this year. Another damn fine indie rock record. Comparisons have been made to My Morning Jacket, Neil Young, and The Shins to a lesser extent.
Go listen to Josh Ritter & Birdmonster right now. :)

I recommend seeing the Editors/Stellastarr* tour. I went to the Trocadero show and it was amazing. Also, I recommend the Mobius Band who opened the show.
