Time for a glorious comeback...

okay, yes, I haven't posted in a long, long time, and no I don't really have a valid excuse other than I needed a break, especially with my exams. But, break's over, or break has begun rather, now that i'm free from the man for 2 months of summery-bliss and it's a perfect time to dust off the old blog.
But the title of this post doesn't refer to my absence. It refers to these guys' absence..from the music scene in the past year or two rather.


They're back, and this time they're one hit-TV show/super-power promotional force free! Lucky for Spoon, hype proves to be resounding. This one, called Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga looks like it'll be one of the albums of the summer. Pick it up July 14th, out worldwide on Merge.

White Stripes

After listening to the first single from the stripes newest album, Icky Thump, I was delighted to hear that it's the same noisy, guitar-riff-driven rock and roll that I was hooked on two years ago when Get Behind Me Satan was released, save for the rockin'-est bagpipe solo I've ever heard. Looking forward to picking this up June 19th on Warner, and you should too!

New Pornographers

They're coming around the rocky mountain one more time with some pure-bred, British Columbian folk-pop with Challengers, and this time, they're going "epic". The bands fourth studio album will hold string arrangements and overtly sexual lyrics. Out August 21st on Matador
