October 25th // Virgin Mega Whore - Body of Work

I've heard this band was actually imprisoned for their choice of band name. Virgin sued them and demanded they go to jail instead of just paying up. Not sure how much truth there is to this.


October 18th // Microphones - Ocean 1,2,3

The vocals are a bit hard to get used to, but overall it's a very pretty song.


October 13th // YAWN - Kind of Guy

The video is not in perfect sync, check it out on their official site instead (it's good): http://www.yawntheband.com/Yawn/Yawn.html


October 9th // The Books - A Cold Freezing Night

The video and song goes so well together, they're hardly inseparable. Not sure how I feel about the band's other songs.


October 8th // Parenthetical Girls - Evelyn McHale

Evelyn McHale, a 23-year-old woman who jumped from the Empire State Building observation deck on May 1, 1947 and was photographed immediately after by Robert Wiles in beautifully serene repose atop a crushed car.


October 7th // Born Ruffians - Red Yellow and Blue

Very cozy song about how one might reason when making a flag for an imaginary country.



October 4th // Klaxons - Two Receivers

Maybe a bit too polished sound for my taste, but a great tune nonetheless!
