100th Post

I've been preparing this post for quite a while now. But today seems like the ideal time to actually publish it, seeing as it's Halloween and all. Especially considering that this is my landmark 100th post. I hope they haven't all sucked so far :)

I have a special treat for everyone. This one's courtesy of my bud Ingers (his blog is over here, it's mostly hip-hop stuff). He sent me this brilliant little video the other day. I'm praying really hard this kid Bangs is being serious. Check it out:


Now onto other stuff I've picked out

I've been listening to the Headlights for a while. I probably heard them first on Grey's Anatomy or some such, maybe a couple years ago even. In any case they're good and they've had a new album come out earlier this year and there are a few songs on it that are very good. You should have a listen to "Get Going" right here, or if you'd prefer check out "Telephones" and "Secrets" over here. It's pretty happy stuff, which is always nice. I hope you agree.

Next up, I've got Calexico. I've written about them before and I think I mentioned this last time, but I've really had to get used to their music. The first time they came on when I was listening to random tracks on betterPropaganda, I thought they kind of sucked. For a while now though, I have to say I've really started enjoying the music. In fact, now I can't even tell what was off-putting to me at the beginning. It's very calming music. I reckon you should just check out their song "Cruel" for yourselves over here. I think the purty album cover might be influencing me too, but that's definitely not the only nice thing about Calexico.

Speaking of cool album covers. This one from the Horse Feathers album House With No Home is probably even cooler. It reminds me of the abandoned shacks one sees when driving around Vermont in the cold Winter months. I took this fabulous little class my senior year in college called pin-hole photography and we spent a good amount of our time taking pictures of just this sort of rickety old buildings. The song fits the mood pretty well too. It's a bit of a melancholy tune, that captures the solitary winter atmosphere on the cover perfectly. Listen and download here.

Well that's that for now. If I think of anything else I'll be sure to post it asap. Have a good Halloween.
