New Blindside EP coming out next week, you can listen to all of it on their Myspace site and it sounds great.

One week until Cornerstone! I haven't been in 5 years, and I am very excited. Very few artists I love are playing, but there are some good ones: SF59, Rosie Thomas, Leigh Nash, MeWithoutYou, the Violet Burning, and most notably Tess Wiley.

I have been listening to the New Pornographers new album a ton: Challengers. They have this thing called "Buy Early, Get Now" that allows you to listen to it early, plus all kinds of bonus things. The title track is a beautiful slower-tempo track featuring the lead vocals of Neko Case.

Other upcoming albums I am excited about:
Tegan & Sara- The Con (July 2007)
The Smashing Pumpkins- Veitgeist (July 2007)
Eisley- Combinations (August 2007)
The New Pornographers- Challengers (August 2007)
Pinback- Autumn of the Seraphs (Sept. 2007)
Zookeeper- Becoming All Things (Sept. 2007) (Chris Simpson of Mineral & The Gloria Record)
Theft- Nothing Gold Will Stay (November 2007) (Matt McCartie of Driver Eight, National, etc.)
Thrice- TBA (4-disc) (Fall 2007)
Jimmy Eat World- Chase This Light (Fall 2007)

My previous post is about the NBA, which is ironic considering I have almost lost all interest in the league. In a way I wish the Pistons would just suck next year that way I wouldn't watch any games. I did not see any of the NBA Finals and apparently I didn't miss much. I am now counting down the days until football starts- ready to watch the Washington Redskins and the Auburn Tigers again.
