Almost a week into May already? What's everyone been listening to, watching, or reading this week?
Ryan GardnerI've been spinning Mayday Parade's timeless A Lesson In Romantics all week, as well as the latest from The Menzingers, fun., and Daytrader. Starting up the new Stephen King Dark Tower book tomorrow (finally).
Andy BiddulphBeen listening to an awful lot of the latest Japandroids, Straight Lines and Daytrader records. Also, a huge pat on the back to everybody who donated to help The Menzingers make their money back after they were robbed in Manchester last week; especially the guys at Banquet Records who raised 1,600 (including 250 of their own money) for the cause. Also, the UK's The Skints had their van, gear and merch stolen on Saturday. Unfortunately, you know the drill by now - please buy merch and CDs if you possibly can to help this ridiculously hardworking band.
Alex DiVincenzoI Can See Mountains, The Tower & The Fool, Freshman 15, Daytrader, Beastie Boys

Been jamming a lot of Garbage a lot lately - to be specific Beautiful Garbage and Bleed Like Me, in anticipation for Not Your Kind Of People.
Band rules, and those two records get overlooked a lot.
Rewatching season one of Suits as well.

Also I STILL can't stop listening to the new Lovedrug. Can't believe how much I'm enjoying it.

All Get Out (I just got back from seeing them in Detroit with La Dispute and Balance and Composure and they completely stole the show. They were definitely the best there.)

Don't know if people are familiar with Casey Abrams, who was on American Idol last year. Recently, he posted an original song on YouTube.

The Tower and the Fool - How Long has dominated my week, and may end up pretty high on my EOTY list.
