Best of 07 pt. 1- Sophomore Slump?

This is the first of many post to wrap up the end of the year and this year we are doing things a little different. We will do a series of post that will highlight different aspects of this year. One of the key points that I found interesting this year was the debunking of the "sophomore slump" myth. From LCD soundsystem to the Arcade Fire nothing has shattered this myth than Band of Horses in my humble opinion.

So the first post of Mp3this's best of 07 goes to Band of Horses for Avoiding the Sophomore slump, not an easy feat for the band that wrote the single "funeral".

My Bloody Valentine re-enter studio.

Want to be just like Radiohead when they grow up.

My Bloody Valentine - Blow a Wish

After I am done a paper on conflict resolution in the midst of the war on terror, I will post my top 50 of 2007. I have something special planned.

Give me some of that old fashion...

Give me some of that old fashion morphine errr... religion.

It's funny how history is always repeating its self. Well funny and sad.

I am watching the movie Inherit the Wind and the opening song is "Give me some of that Old Time Religion". Made me instantly think of this:

One more time

So here is the deal, I have finished classes for the day and I have 30 mins. to kill before I have a meeting to save the world so I think I should share one of my current favourite songs. This one comes courtesy of one, Adam Fox who lent me the album. Alejandro Escovedo, despite having the name of my future child is apparently very well-known and I was the only person not in the know. 'Sal good though because I now know and have been rocking the "More Miles than Money" live album all weekend.

26 more posts before 2008?

I have become utterly depressed under recent moon. I found out all my ideas for sculptures and installations have already been done by Maya Lin. ALL of them.

Can we post 26 more times before 2008 in order to fulfil our goal of 300 posts this year? I doubt it, but please Jon--by all means--shatter that vision.

I'm Back

Sadly my last few weeks have been very overwhelming and some things had to give, clearly one of those things was this blog. I will do my best to update but with my macbook in the shop, work being overwhelming and me not having the time I used to for new music it will be very difficult.

Anyway it is almost time for the top 50 and one band I can assure you will not make this years list will be The Killers, or The Leechs as I refer to them. This cover just might.

Astrid Swan - When You Were Young (Killers Cover)

I miss you guys,

More vacation

Sheesh. Not Jon, nor I can explain these unforeseen absences. We're loaded with work.

Jon is apart of the Jerusalem Project. He's [not] a slave, he learns, and he drinks to cope.
I am apart of the New World Order, I slave, create, and smoke to cope.

The Slip are from Boston. Listen to "Life In Disguise" because it is beautiful.
