Hell, let's try the monthly format this time around.




I need to dig up artwork for a couple of EPs as well: Sad Robots from Stars and Scattered Leaves from Be Good Tanyas.

Listening to the new Fireman album (Paul McCartney + producer Youth). Very good stuff. The production on this makes it more appealing to me than his last two recordings, which were pretty good. "Traveling Light" is an awesome tune.

I picked up the Raveonettes album on eMusic, but the Amazon download has an additional exclusive track. I am also spinning Until The Autumn by The Story Of, but couldn't find artwork.

I know there are a few fans here, so if you read this in time set up your DVR's tonight, Gaslight Anthem are going to be on Conan. I'm sure they will be toned down for TV, but I've seen them several times & they are incredible live.

As for today's listening, it has been . . .

How is the honeyhoney album? I got "Little Toy Gun" as a free download via Borders.com recently, and its video from iTunes. It's fun, and I like the sound, but I haven't gotten so into it that I'm willing to leapfrog the album over other things I've been wanting.
