So here is the deal, I'm in between ISP's right now so there going to be a little gap until I decide what I'ma gonna do about this situation. There are quite the few albums that I want to write about but this is kind of holding me back especially since I have to use computers that are available instead of my own. Right now I'm kind of riding low from a Dallas Cowboys loss that had so many opportunities to be avoided. I've been rocking the new Malajube, the new Trail of Dead, the new Swan Lake and listening to some older stuff. Check those out if you can, other than that I'm going to be back on the net soon.

P.O.S. is this weeks guest on Daytrotter doing a 4 song set, I think is their first hip hop guest. I believed I've mentioned his last album, the critically acclaimed Audition, remember? It was released this year on Rhymesayers. He sounds like this:

P.O.S - P.O.S Is Ruining My Life

Give his daytrotter set a listen

I was late to jump on to the Earlimart boat but earlier this year I finally gave in. I was weary when I heard all the Elliott Smith comparisons but after few recommendations I decided to look past that and give them a chance, I was happy I did. Earlimart have a new album coming out and they gave pitchfork a song and have 2 more to be revealed from the new album.

From the new album:

Earlimart - Nevermind the Phonecalls

Got cred? Do you have what it takes to walk the walk and talk the talk in the indie scene, a scene that thrives on snobbery and does not look kindly on newbies? Take's Indie Cred quiz and find out.

Trail of dead

I've been slacking this week on the blog especially when considering all the new music I heard this past week. I've been kind of busy I suppose. I did buy some drums so thats kind of cool, I have them mostly setup minus a thing or two.

I've been listening to the new Beck, Hold Steady, Four Tet, Mercury Rev, Arab Strap, and Cold War Kids but now I finally found the time to listen to the new the new Trail of Dead album So Divided. I'm liking it more than the previous album Worlds Apart but not nearly as much as the album before that, Source Tags & Codes. The new album features couple of guests including King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto and Dresden Dolls vocalist and pianist Amanda Palmer.

From Billboard: "So Divided" is the follow-up to 2005's "Worlds Apart," which has sold less than half of "Source Tags." "I put everything I had into that record, and recording it was a miserable ordeal," group member Conrad Keely told in July. "After its reception I was pretty much ready to retire from music and find another career, convinced that I wanted nothing more to do with making music for anyone. But when we started this new album, which was meant to be an EP, I had a different attitude. Mainly, I tried not to care at all, and approach it with a more 'I don't give a f*ck' outlook."

The album really is worth checking out, expect it in stores November 14th.
