Catch up

I can't tell you how many times I sat to create a post and got distracted. Its a slow time of the year for new releases so I'm starting to revisit some of my favorite albums from years back. What have I been up to you ask, I got a new car and in a few weeks I'm moving to a new place. Other than that just working.

Single Frame - New Car Smell

New Cadence Weapon album Afterparty Babies is coming out soon, there are some live tracks floating around and one album cut,

Cadence Weapon - In Search Of The Youth Crew

What ever happen to Urban Sprawl in North Texas, I liked that concept.

Weekend Wars

I've been listening to lots of debuts recently, right now its the MGMT's debut Oracular Spectacular. I missed them last weekend at the Granada in Dallas, I caught the end of the last song and was in disbelief that I missed it. Grand Buffet and Of Montreal were great and I'll catch the MGMT when they come around next time, most preferably headlining.

Their album has some great tracks and shows lots of potential for future releases, they really can go two different direction with their musical progression as a band on a major record label (Columbia Records). Hopefully creativity wins over the dull.

Not my favorite debut of the year but damn are those tunes catchy. I can't believe Indie Rokkers didn't make the album cut.
