Ah, if I had any extra money right now I would be all over that. I am very curious what insane by BD standards is. They are still the one band that causes my dog to freak out and gave me vertigo-like feelings at their live show (in a good way).
That is the coolest fucking album cover ever. Who is this Sandrider band anyway? Something I would dig, badchoices?
Haha yes I do think you would like them. As a matter of fact, I sent you a download code a while back. Don't forget to download it! They are one of my favorite local bands right now and are on my favorite local record label (Good To Die Records). Two thirds of the band were in Akimbo.
2/1 they are playing @ Neumos with Helms Alee. I have been trying to drive home how amazing Helms Alee are, too. They recently signed to Sargent House and will be releasing their Sargent House debut next year. The man on the guitar is the drummer in another Seattle band called Constant Lovers. He creates some amazing amps (from what I am told) www.verellenamplifiers.com/. The drummer is also the drummer in Lozen. If you are able to go to a show in Seattle on 2/1, this is the show to go to. I am still debating if I can make it or not.
I don't think I have ever heard a Neutral Milk Hotel song.
Woah. How have you managed that? Pretty much every music community I've been apart of on the interwebs obsesses over In The Aeroplane Over the Sea. It's one of those albums that I just automatically assume everyone has listened to.
Yeah, I am not sure how that happened. I have been catching up on a ton of stuff that I missed over the years (Black Dice, Brian Eno, Explosions In The Sky and countless others) thanks to this forum though. This is the only music community I have been a part of other than real life friend circles.

Awesome, thanks for the tips! Once I get some time I am going to check them out.
Also, I am predicting that Unknown Mortal Orchestra will be there. Been listening to their new one a lot lately and universing this. Plus, they are back in the USA in the beginning of May playing Austin Psych Fest. After that, nada.

I don't think I have ever heard a Neutral Milk Hotel song. Actually, I am not sure I know any Replacement songs or Kraftwerk songs. Once I have consistent computer access again I have some research to do.

Well, the USA has a tough road in Brazil. Put in the same group as Ghana, Germany and Portugal. ALSO, they have the longest travel schedule during the group stage. Oh well, we beat Portugal in 2002 and we owe Ghana one. We beat Germany in a friendly this year but, ya know, that was a friendly.

I have always been a Jay-Z hater,now I am a larger hater...
EDIT: I am going to stop looking at these MLB Rumors. They are making my mind spin. Everyone reports anything they want to. Still a Jay-Z hater regardless.
EDIT EDIT: And just like that, reported 10 year 240 million dollar deal in place. I hope this is true. The M's and Cano are both getting ripped about this deal. People saying it is dumb for both parties. I love it. I will be picking up a Cano jersey to go along with my Felix jersey. Go M's.
