That Jesus Christ cover sounds as amazing as Weezer's cover of MGMT and Gaga. Rivers Cuomo in a blond wig climbing the stage singing "Kids"...yeah. Amazing. I need to find that Angry Johnny/Jesus Christ cover.

Put together a compilation of Brian's acoustic stuff from his old MySpace/radio sessions/b-sides/etc and organized them with some artwork if anyone's interested. Highly recommend it, his acoustic songs (particularly "The Blues, Mary") are glorious.

Absolutely beautiful! Excellent, excellent post.

Would've loved to hear more of The '59 Sound on this album. Not that it wasn't great, but from how they described it I expected a little less American Slang sound and a little more '59 Sound.

45 withstood the stream for me, still my favorite on the album. National Anthem being a close second. This album, unlike their others will have to take some time to grow. First of their albums where I didn't love every song immediately.

I skip Desire most of the time. This album, like American Slang, probably just needs time to grow on me. It took months for American Slang to really hit me.

I was glad to see that this makes 3 albums in a row where the opener is one of the best songs. And no, I didn't catch the reference but I'm gonna listen to that track right now for it.

"And I remember she used to look so good in that dress
Now she just screams how I promised her more than this
Take it easy baby, it ain't over yet"

One of the best lines on the album.

Handwritten has officially sunk in, absolutely fantastic album. Although I would've liked to here more of the '59 Sound like I expected to.

Honestly, I think it's stuff like that that distinguishes a good live band from a great live band. Not that every band needs to do it, but it really bolsters the experience. Intro's, outro's, homages to other bands, all of it.

Is that what you'll call that? Including lyrics from other songs into your own... Cause it's not really a cover.. homage sounds right.

Exactly, yeah. I've seen bands I'm not all that crazy about live who put on a hell of a show.

Aren't they playing some festival there in September?

Yeah they are, don't have the money for that though. Still, not many people come here surprisingly.

Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Loved that he played 1930 and Blue Jeans and White Tshirts.

Biloxi Parish is definitely the pinnacle of their discography to me. It's such a solid, complete song.

Absolutely.
