    Yeah, every time I listen to This Place Is A Prison it brings to mind the haunting melodies of Fireflies.

    Well no, my point was that the comparison is the other way around for people who weren't 6 years old when the Postal Service record came out. Obviously anyone is directly comparing the two as if they were contemporaries is a dipshit, but it's hard not to see that owl City was ripping off The Postal Service in a big way.

    I like the idea of a city full of owls more than USPS, especially since this whole Lance Armstrong debacle has been exposed.

    The Glasgow School is one of the greatest albums ever. Although I do admit I like the You Can't Hide... versions of Falling and Laughing and Three Cheers For Our Side better. It's weird they're not more popular, since almost every indie band since has taken a page from their book.

    D'Angelo's new '99% done' record sounds promising. Questlove, who might be a bit biased, says:

    "I would not be far off by saying this is probably my generation's version of Sly (and the Family Stone's) 'There's a Riot Goin' On.' It's potent. It's funky. It's an extremely hard pill to swallow. He's one of those artists that have, of course, taken 13 years to follow up a record. It's going to take you about 10 years to digest this record. Totally brilliant. Just the way this society works with music… being able to judge if something is a classic after the first listen, you can do that after thirty seconds on this. And the fact that we started this record in 2004, and it still sounds like it came out five years from now, it is a testament to the timelessness of it."

    True. Pretty sad about his hemorrhage, but so cool that he manages to still play shows and not let it deter him. My friend from London went and saw Arctic Monkeys a couple months ago and he came out as a surprise opening guest. Cane and all, started playing Falling and Laughing and the few who knew went apeshit.

    I've never heard of this album before, but based on this Pitchfork review, I'm super excited and intrigued.

    Do any of you guys listen to Henry's Dress? If not, you should. A really good band that was on Slumberland's label in the 90's

    I just recently picked up a 'best of' collection from Ian Dury and the Blockheads after hearing 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick'. I had heard 'What a Waste' and 'Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll', but wasn't incredibly crazy about them. But I really like this dude - the way he speaks/sings songs, and his accent come off really funny at times. They had kind of unique sound that set them apart from all the angry punk and postpunk music at the time.

    The sound on that is crap. The song is pretty cool, and I can hear it sounding much cooler in the head. All trippy like init

    well this makes me happy.

    A Winged Victory for the Sullen will release some new music later this year. That project will keep me busy for the rest of my life methinks.

    So the past few months I've fallen in love with a lot of underappreciated bands from Slumberland/K Recs, i guess "twee" if you will? Though this band Black Tambourine has some MBV vibes. Really good!





    If you like this, you should check out Henry's Dress, Boyracer, Go Sailor, Talulah Gosh, Shop Assistants. I'm sure you guys have heard of some of those but yeah..nothing too mind-blowing, just some good ole pop jams.
