What I'm Listening To Today

In honor of the fact that I'll be seeing these guys live in less than 24 hours, I feel it's appropriate to share a few of my favorite songs by Cursive.

ALSO, in keeping with the whole concert situation, Coheed and Cambria is coming on May 10th. Have I already gotten my ticket? Yes. But why you ask? Because they're playing the Murray Effing Theatre. So that shit is going to sell out quite quickly. On the way to me shortly will be the deluxe edition of their new album (including a 352 page novel!!!!!!) and this is a song from that new album. I really really like it. But I have quite a biased opinion, so I will let you form your own.



My recent obssesion (and I mean recent, today, in fact!) is Ha Ha Tonka. Now since this is an obviously new discovery for me, I haven't listened to everything by them. But you should know that "Buckle in the Bible Belt Re-Release" is FANTASTIC. I can't stop listening. Here is on of my favorite songs from this album, called "Caney Mountain".

Also today, I've been listening to The Weakerthans, The Northern, and The View. Not the talk show!

Black Betty by Ram Jam is my badass song. Whenever I'm getting a tattoo, I put it on my ipod and INSTANTLY feel like a badass. Ever seen Blow? The scene where he's walking through the airport with 2 suitcases of cocaine and this song is playing? Epic!! Well guess what? Ha Ha Tonka did a cover. The guitar is a little sloppy, but I dig it anyway. Enjoy!
