Other big changes include new chart jumps from Low, Vivian Girls, and Funeral Party. Read the rest of this entry »

Asobi Seksu – Fluorescence

March 30th, 2011 by Eric Loose

As listeners, we desire familiarity– something to grasp on to, to harken back to. Looking back on the past can help us understand the present, but this desire gets us in trouble sometimes. We can get too caught up in striving to label that modern day My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive that we forget to appreciate the distinctness of the tongue-twister-tagged Asobi Seksu.

The Flaming Lips and Neon Indian – The Flaming Lips and Neon Indian

March 28th, 2011 by Eric Loose

Everything is in its right place, perfectly as you would expect a Flaming Lips and Neon Indian collaboration to play out. With little fanfare, Wayne Coyne personally hand-delivers the EP to record stores in his local Oklahoma City area (only two stores are reported to be carrying the EP at this point), the artwork is indistinct, and a main facet of the all-vinyl release is that not two single vinyls are adorned with the same color or pattern– unique, and exactly what we could expect from such a work. The collaboration makes perfect sense, after all. Read the rest of this entry »

The O’s will be taking on the Detroit Tigers, and they need all the support they can get.

With its new line-up, the team is hoping to take on its main rivals, the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Read the rest of this entry »
