Hi Mom, Thanks for reading my blog!

Just in case anyone else stumbles by though, i guess there should be some kind of JFE (justification for existence) statement or at least an attempt to explain what it is i'm attempting to do here.

Well, imma kick this thing off as an audioblog - a little review of various mp3s that are available around the net and the links of course so you can listen your damn self. I know, i know - i saw an already over crowded market place and said "me too!" I feel just like Antwon Bugleboy. All links will be to legally dl-able files that the band or their record label decided that you should have. Since there is so much stuff out there this thing will be like a strainer so you can keep hold of the tasty ravioli while letting the rest of the water run down the drain. But who knows where it will go, this is my first attempt ect ect...

First i should say a bit about what i like - so if your tastes do not match up with my own or you suffer from a lack of adventure you can stop reading now (if you already haven't). I'm very much a part of Indie Nation right now along with the NYC garage revival sound, DiscoPunk/ElectroClash/IndieDance whatever you wanna call it, New New Wave or Art Rock, most of the genres of electronic music (Techno, House, Trance, Jungle...), General Alt Rock, occasionally some Alt Country, i also dig on Standards & Crooners, Pop, Reggae, Hip-Hop - ok actually this is a little useless and i have not the talent of Brett Easton Ellis to make the reading of lists the least bit engaging so basically: i dig music. Now lets dive (off this roof and) into this thing.

Here are four tracks that i like...

___________________________________________________________________

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. - Whitewash Is Brainwash

19 year old bedroom musicians turn out a lot of crap. Thankfully most of it we don't have to listen to and thankfully this is an exception. The track starts with an acoustic guitar intro just before a mellow breakbeat kicks in. The track has a Postal Service feel to it while the lyrics are a whole lot more cynical - he even calls himself a cynic in the song. The song is a meditation on TV and consumer culture and escapist entertainment but in a fittingly fun, bubbly little pill that's a snap to swallow. The goofy ending is just as endearing - the beat drops out and there's a little acoustic sing along of the chorus followed by a few Yeahs and Woo-Hoos. Fantastic. GCWCF has yet to release a proper album but having just signed to a major label it should be coming out at some point this year.

Elefant - Lolita

This is the 2nd 'single' from NYC band Elefant's second album - The Black Magic Show. A droning, paranoid affair about well - a lolita. The track moves more in an Interpol direction than anything on their previous album, emulating The Cure/Echo & Bunnymen with a more driving urban rock sound. Lead singer Diego Garcia has a romantic yet urgent Morrissey style croon. The first track from the cd has a much different carnival style sound to it so it seems that they are reaching farther sonically that their previous release.

The Raconteurs - Steady, As She Goes (Acoustic Version)

iTunes current free Single of the Week so the free period will expire this Tuesday. Jack White of the White Stripes' side project sounds... well a lot like the White Stripes. Not that i mind. Actually, this acoustic version of the song sounds more like the minimally produced style of the White Stripes than the plugged in version, which has a bit a of a sheen to it. Typically when something new comes along the record company releases the most familiar sounding material first so i don't expect the whole album to sound this similar to the Stripes. The full length drops in 2 weeks and i can't wait to here it.

The Ark - This Piece of Poetry is Meant to Do Harm

Apparently this Swedish glam-rock band has been around sing the dawn of the 90's - who knew. Anyway this is the first track of their newly released disc State of the Ark (clever). There are some video game style sounds, distorted guitars and an overall funky sound that recalls T.Rex with a hint of Devo. Infectious.

___________________________________________________________________

Sweet, well that was relatively painless - though i took it slow. So if you do happen to stumble upon this (or are one of the select for whom i'll send out an invitation) drop a comment and let me know what ya think. I'm going to attempt to add a hand full of tracks every 3-5 days.

Darn I missed the "free" zone on The Raconteurs - Steady, As She Goes (Acoustic Version), but enjoyed the first set. Can't help but relate to the title of The Ark song.

"I have been using Advanced Gain Pro for 3 months now and I must say I'm simply amazed. I really didn't think the product would have this many benefits. I really only purchased the pills to help the reliability of my erections. But to my surprise every aspect of my penis and sex life has improved. I have larger, harder erections easily, and I can really satisfy my girlfriend fully now."
