bands

I don't have much of anything to say today, so I suppose a big old list of bands I've been meaning to get into would be cool. There are so many!

- John Vanderslice. He's John Darnielle's friend, they just finished a joint tour, the EP he and John collaborated on, Moon Colony Bloodbath, is FANTASTIC, and I love his voice. Just ordered his new album today :D

- The Decemberists. First saw them on the Colbert Report during the greenscreen/Rock & Awe: Countdown to Guitarmageddon epic fiasconess. I got the Crane Wife but never listened to more than a few songs, just recently discovered the absolute brilliance of The Hazards of Love. Colin Meloy is <3. His lyrics are ridiculously literary.

- The Weakerthans. I favorited one of their songs on Pandora ages ago, and one of their lead guys was on Ships and Dip V, this cruise thing, that John Darnielle and Barenaked Ladies were on. I think. I think his name is John too. That is perfect.

- Andrew Jackson Jihad. I think Blaze, suchducks Blaze, mentioned them on teh twittarz, and we went on a crazy yt spree, and they are really great. They're like Neutral Milk Hotel, kinda.



Sorry for the lack of links, I BEDA procrastinated :/

Might add them later :D

  1. Crane Wife is no good, get the early albums... in fact, get every album that came out before The Crane Wife. God I love the Decemberists.

  3. I've just recently started listening to Decemberists too and I have to say I'm really liking Crane Wife. But then again, I haven't listened to any of their other albums so I suppose I should get on that.
