The Lost Hiatus Post

Okay, so it’s been a while since my last post. The reason for this is that I am currently stuck in Toledo and my record collection is located in Pittsburgh. I came to Toledo last weekend for my dad’s 60th birthday party (joy) and am staying here until Thursday, which is when I will depart for Chicago and three joyous days of rocking out at Lollapalooza. I’ll need to rock out after this week, during which I attempted to serve as the family mediator between brothers and temporarily shared a bathroom with a six-hundred pound slob (seriously, I think I’m scarred for life now). In case anyone is curious, highlights for me at this year’s show include The Fratellis, Polyphonic Spree, LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk (FUCK YEAH), Muse, Regina Spektor (I wanna marry her), Iggy Pop, , Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Spoon and about a billion other bands. It”ll promise to be the best three days of near-dehydration I’ll have all year.

As I mentioned before, my records are in Pittsburgh, and I didn’t plan ahead far enough to upload any tracks to my server before leaving town (I’ve been busy) so I wasn’t going to update the blog at all this week. Luckily I made my way to the best record store in Toledo yesterday and they gave me a little something that I think y’all might enjoy.

The Fratellis
3 Skinny Girls
Flathead (Live At The Cherrytree House)
Doginabag (Live At The Cherrytree House)
Chelsea Dagger (Acoustic)
The Fratellis are My New Favorite Band and Costello Music is one of the best debut albums I’ve heard recently. I really hope these bitchin’ Scottish dance-friendly garage-rockers can keep up the momentum on their next album. These four tracks I found off of the Chelsea Dagger EP, which was given to some record stores as a promo for Costello Music. It was given to me by Culture Clash because I rock (Culture Clash rocks too).
