Weeks Vacation

So I'm not the boy with the cold. I've developed a bad caugh, cold/fever combo. I described it to a customer at work yesterday as "the purgatory between common cold and fiery fever." However, I've got my new winter coat on that's keeping me warm. Just a reminder to all our German readers that Apparat's new album Walls is excellent, and to attend any of his jam sessios in his native Berlin if you get the chance. I know I never will.

This post features St. Vincent, a musician who with the help of the internet (and Stereogum, Gorilla vs Bear, etc) has propelled into the hearts of many. Her voice is like Leslie Fiest, and her guitar work twice as good. She plays a beautiful telecaster (Nashville edition, with the third pickup in the middle of the pick gaurd--ew!)

Anyways, she covered The Beatles's "Dig a Pony".

Please sit still while i try to pin your flowers on.

Boy with the cold

The girl featured in the last post drove me home last night at 2am! I love her!

NPR featured Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) recently, performing some new and old tracks. It's fitting since I've got his t-shirt on from the December 10th, 2005 show with Calexico. That seems like AGES ago!

Aunt Pearl's Jam

Whatever the nature of the name I love Pearl Jam.
I don't like Elvis, but I like Pearl Jam covering Elvis.

Eastern Bloc

England is East of us right? New Bloc Party, thanks to the good folks at Good Weather for air strikes. It is a radio rip but a good one regardless. I don't mind the track, the beat is heavy enough to dance to and that makes me happy. We will see what the new album has in store.

Bloc Party - Flux

99 Problems

99 Problems mixed with Oh No's Heavy....Why not? It's the conservative dream.

333 - 99 Problems/Heavy

333 is the store code.


Dalton McGuinty makes promises. Some people break promises. Everyone makes promises, and everyone has at some time broken a promise. So don't get mad at someone for breaking promises. Especially if you go on TV about it, because it only makes you a hypocrite, John Tory.

Jon breaks promises. Like updating this blog. Interview with Hot Springs tentatively scheduled to be posted on Saturday.
