since i have been absolutely crazy swamped at work today, this is going to be brief but will have to be sufficient.
for one, the latest (number FIFTEEN, whoa!) edition of THE BLOG SHOW is up now for your listening pleasure on Break Thru Radio. Hoorah! We crush on Kevin Devine and say awesome things about Slap You In Public, etc. etc. good times all around.
one of my bands for this week is an act that i guess has become pretty synonymous with this blog. they are called Clap Your Hands Say Yeah -- ever heard of them?
well i have my copy of Some Loud Thunder, and while i haven't been able to give it a totally thorough listening just yet, I have to say that I have been really impressed with the direction the band is going in and with the new songs as well. i know that the two "leaked" tracks were met with a bit of a lukewarm reception upon first listen by a lot of bloggers, but they have really grown on me, especially the gorgeous "Love Song Number 7." (available as a free download on the band's website incase you haven't heard it yet and live in a cave or something, har har again).
every time I tell Rachael how much I love this song, however, she does gawk at me or types REALLY with lots of ?!?!?!??! afterwards.
don't worry, i'm working on her still.
anyways, go listen to the blog show and here are two more tracks from the CYHSY album to amuse yourselves with, or STREAM IT FREE on their myspace.
CYHSY - Emily Jean Stock
Mama, Won’t You Keep Them Castles in the Air and Burning?
