So as i procrastinate my epic coachella youtube binge post, i would like you to examine the new music video from the oakland band Saything. They are one of the most solid rock bands I have seen around here and definitely have some of the grooviest math indie funk jams around. Their new album; which was recorded during their recent national tour, has just finished being mastered, so expect to hear more of them soon. For now: watch the video
it seems like everyone around is in that video, and if i hadnt been in at coachella id of been in there with a stupid look on my face im sure.

Its been a cold few days, and a generally freezing 2010 so far. so it only makes sense that ive had an album done by the man Ben Frost on repeat.
this is some brilliant work. Tim Hecker with more movement, and more brood. Excellent production, and its fucking heavy. I like his ghostbuster references as well. Also: anything named By The Throat has to be good.
listen to it here at his bandcamp
for once there is alot of good vibes around here.

So things piled up around here so we havent been able to do any of the worthless posts we try and shove down your throats.. but we might be able to pay a bit more attention to the blog now, and to celebrate, there is a new mixtape coming down the line, but first: some oakland.
Tall Grass. they are fucking awesome. Macy and Rosie = the best ever. Cracking Jokes mid serious song and oh so many meows everywhere, its a brilliant cacofany of cute and great song writing and everything good in the world. Its like the clouds are grey but as you ride your bike down the oakland dirge you can see sunlight at the edge of the clouds and it makes everything seem a little bit better and nicer.
click here to download their song Top Heavy Ship
Be sure to check them out performing at Fort Gallery (24th and Telegraph) in Oakland on thursday the 14th. Its their record release!?
