Man I Miss This Band

I may just have to form the world’s first second GBV cover band.

New Grand Archives, “Silver Among the Gold”

Not sure how I missed this…

Sub Pop is streaming a song from Grand Archives’ forthcoming second album, Keep In Mind Frankenstein.

Check it out:

Grand Archives, “Silver Among the Gold

On first listen, it’s a damn good song. Not quite as perfect and pretty as “Torn Blue Foam Couch” off the first album, but definitely a strong song that bodes well for the album.

Keep In Mind Frankenstein comes out on September 8th. As soon as I see pre-order info, I’ll post it here.

A Tribute to Michael Jackson

I can think of no greater tribute.

R.I.P., Michael.

Wilco on Conan Last Night, “You Never Know”

One of my favorite songs from Wilco’s generally-disappointing new album.

The DC/Baltimore Virgin Fest is Announced… and Free

(Edited several times. Full details and confirmation HERE.)

Just caught this nugget on the Twitter feed of the Washington Post’s PostRock blog:

VIRGIN FREEFEST
Sunday, August 30
Merriweather Post Pavilion
Cost: FREE

Weezer
Blink-182
Franz Ferdinand
Public Enemy
Jet (the joke that never dies)
The National
Girl Talk
The Hold Steady
St. Vincent
Wale
Taking Back Sunday
The Bravery
Holy Fuck
Mates of State
Pete Tong
Danny Howells and Lee Burridge (Dance Tent)

Gotta say, this is better than I thought it was gonna be. Rumors had been that it was just going to be Weezer/Blink-182 and maybe Holy Fuck. But with the addition of The National, Hold Steady and Public Enemy, this is now a show that I might go to. (I say might because those are the only bands I really care about.)

Listen to Wye Oak’s New Album, “The Knot”

I already mentioned this on my Twitter feed, but figured it’s a cool enough piece of news to post here on the blog.

Baltimore, Maryland’s Wye Oak are set to release their second album, The Knot, via Merge Records on July 21st. If you don’t want to wait, however, Merge is streaming the album in its entirety for free right now here.

I’m only a couple of songs in, but so far it’s pretty fantastic. Which shouldn’t be a surprise if you saw the band playing many of these songs out on tour this past spring.

Oh, and if you like the album as much as I think you will, be sure to pre-order it here.

Wye Oak Tour Dates
July 21: Baltimore, MD (Ottobar – CD Release Show w/ Oakley Hall)
July 26: Chapel Hill, NC (Memorial Hall – XX Merge show w/ She & Him, American Music Club)

See Mittenfields Tonight!

I totally meant to write about this show earlier but completely forgot.

Anyway, if you’re in or around DC tonight, I strongly recommend that you head to the Black Cat to catch a fantastic rock and roll show with locals Mittenfields, We Were Pirates and Vox Pop.

Of note, this is Mittenfields’ final show for the summer before they hole up to do some recording, as well as to work on a few side projects. (One of which I just heard for the first time last night, and can tell you it’s gonna be freakin’ awesome.)

Additionally, this is the CD Release Party for We Were Pirates’ debut LP, Cutting Ties. I haven’t had a chance to listen to the album yet, but apparently none other than Greg Cot of the Chicago Tribune referred to one of the songs on the album as “pure pop. This should be the next Fountains of Wayne single… genius.” Good enough for me.

So I expect to see you all there!
