The Mountain Goats at NYU Kimmel Student Center

I thought the show was on Friday so I was at a bar with some friends last night when I found out The Mountain Goats were about to go on. I ran out of the bar to the subway and from the subway to the venue and only missed a couple songs. With the drinking then the running I was kind of light headed but here’s what I think happened: For my money I think this was a better show than the one he played […]

A Ska Band That Even Indie Kids Listen To

If there is a ska band that I’ve known indie kids to actually like, it’s definitelty The Impossibles. I must have met at least 6 indie fans who claim to hate ska, but love this band. I don’t know what it is about them… Many people claim The Impossibles are the Weezer of ska. Unfortantely, I cannot confirm nor deny the accuracy of that claim, as my knowledge to Weezer is limited to some damn song about Beverly Hills that Sasha and AquarianBty always used […]

Did anyone miss the Eames Era during their first round of blog action? If so it’s not too late. Today is a great day to listen to some catchy cheerful indie pop. Watch out especially for the ba-da-da breakdowns. MP3: The Eames Era- Fake Do-GoodersMP3: The Eames Era- Dear Gabby Buy:InsoundAmazon

traffic, Traffic, TRAFFIC!!!

I sound like someone from Simcity 2000 (greeeat game.). “This city has too much traffic”. Well, here are a few songs about traffic and not going anywhere, in lieu of my 3.5 hour commute to work today (at least I was only late to work, and nothing actually important.) For me, traffic is one of the greatest tortures possible. Seriously, I think I’d rather be stuck listening to Kelly Clarkson for a few hours than be in traffic (ok, maybe not Kelly Clarkson, but definitely […]

Immaculate Machine- Fables

I saw Immaculate Machine open for the New Pornographers awhile ago and they were pretty awesome but for some reason it took me forever to get around to listening to their recorded work. I finally got my hands on their last album, Immaculate Machine’s Fables, and I like it a lot. I think it’s a really nice album, sometimes the music starts to sound a little too epic for me but not enough to make me stop listening. Lead vocals are traded between Brooke Gallupe […]

Tofurkey Time

The tofurkey this year was delicious, my only Thanksgiving regret is that my office buddy Dwight would probably be disappointed in me… From the Schrute Thanksgiving blog: “… I commend you on controlling the turkey population in America. Should they be allowed to reproduce unchecked, this nation would be overrun by turkeys.” MP3: The Mountain Goats- Thanks for the Dress Buy:The Mountain GoatsWilco

Aus-Rotten

When Sasha asks people what style of music they listen to, and they respond “Oh I listen to everything!” Sasha has been known to respond “Oh yeah? Everything? So you like crust eh?” Well, I actually do listen to a few crust-punk bands, and Aus-Rotten is one of them. Furiously political (and intelligent lyrics), fans of punk looking for something a bit heavier will find refuge in Aus-Rotten. They boast possibly the longest crust song ever (measuring in at nearly 16 minutes), but personally, it […]

Thanksgivin’

I took the day off work today and went up to Massachusetts. At this very moment I am at the school my sister teaches at and my nieces attend. I am terrified. A minute ago I was sitting in a room full of two year olds who were smashing cranberries with hammers. A whole room full of two year olds with hammers! I love my niece but she is not someone I would want to give a hammer. I’m surprised I made it out of […]
