on to round two

April 30, 2009 under Hockey, Sports

In the first round, I went 6-2; stupid Devils and Rangers. At any rate, it’s the second round and these are my predictions.

East
Vancouver vs Chicago
Detroit vs Anaheim

West
Boston vs Carolina
Washington vs Pittsburgh (although I’d rather see the Pens win)

what i'm listening to – april 2009

April 6, 2009 under what i'm listening to

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve posted one of these, so it’ll have a few more entries than usual:

  • …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of DeadThe Century of Self
    Easily their best album since Source Tags and Codes.
  • Asobi SeksuHush
    Instead of drawing from the My Bloody Valentine chapter of the shoegazing bible, they’ve flipped the pages to the beginning of the book where the Cocteau Twins’ chapter can be found.
  • Cymbals Eat GuitarsWhy There Are Mountains
    Equal parts Built To Spill, Modest Mouse, Pavement and Sonic Youth; these are good touchstones for this young band’s first album. I’m looking forward to how they’ll mature by taking these influences and turning them into something unique.
  • Dan DeaconBromst
    This fun collage of sounds makes for great background music at work.
  • The DecemberistsThe Hazards of Love
    A grand, sweeping rock opera of epic proportion.
  • Marnie SternThis Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That
    Wow, can she play guitar. If any of these songs were included in Guitar Hero or Rock Band, your hands would explode trying to out-Fake Plastic Rock her.
  • MastodonCrack the Skye
    For those unfamiliar with Mastodon, think of a more aggressive version of Yes! or Rush. Crack the Skye catch quite touch Leviathan but it comes close. And if Mastodon’s loud ‘n’ heavy concept albums either frighten you or are beneath you, then Airhead‘s Joe Mantegna’s character’s quip about “if it’s too loud, you’re too old” holds true.
  • The Pains Of Being Pure At HeartThe Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
    Bubblegum pop run through a My Bloody Valentine filter.
