Hey everybody- sorry I've been gone for a while. I've been busy doing a lot of things, including recording some new demos that I'm looking to send to a couple small record companies. To hear these, just go to www.myspace.com/ournamesinthesand And let me know what you think.
Otherwise, as far as music goes, some new albums I've gotten include Challengers by The New Pornographers. All I have to say is don't believe everything you read on Pitchfork. The album (while admittedly not quite as good as their previous efforts) is still amazing, and I'd highly recommend checking it out. At least check out the song 'Myriad Harbor.'
I'll try to get back to my reviews and what-not soon, so hold tight. There are a few concerts coming up that I'll be attending, so you can look for reviews of their live shows in the near future, including They Might Be Giants (which I'll also do a pre-show run through, as I did for The Mountain Goats) and Blitzen Trapper. Thanks for reading, and I'll return soon.
