Sigur Rós - Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust

Hands down, this is my favorite Icelandic band. Actually, it's the only Icelandic band I listen to. But they're amazing. They're post-rock in the style of Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai (a little lighter though). The title means, "with a buzz in our ears, we play endlessly." Thank you wikipedia. Post-rock and an album cover with naked dudes running across a street...I KNOW you want to download it.

1. "Gobbledigook"
2. "Inní mér syngur vitleysingur" (Within me a lunatic sings)
3. "Góðan daginn" (Good day)
4. "Við spilum endalaust" (We play endlessly)
5. "Festival"
6. "Með suð í eyrum" (with a buzz in our ears)
7. "Ára bátur" (Row boat)
8. "Illgresi" (Weeds)
9. "Fljótavík" (A place in Iceland)
10. "Straumnes" (A mountain near Fljótavík)
11. "All alright"



Sorry things have been slow, I've basically been without a steady internet connection for the past few weeks, but that has now ended, so you can start expecting posts almost daily (hopefully). I updated the Weezer/Red Album link, and also leave a message on any other broken links you come across. Thanks for all the kind words you have left, I think the blog is coming up on 60,000 visits, which was way more than I could have ever imagined when I started this thing to keep a few friends posted on what I was listening to while I was away at school.

Here's to all of you for your support.


Post-script: Give me more requests. I'll do my best to find them. And I set up a Gmail account if you want an e-mail when I update the blog (if you don't have an RSS feed). I'll just send you a message letting you know what I updated with so you don't have to randomly keep coming back to check on what's being posted. Unless you really want to...

Dustin Kensrue - Please Come Home

1. I Knew You Before
2. Pistol
3. I Believe
4. Please Come Home
5. Blood & Wine
6. Consider The Ravens
7. Weary Saints

Matt Skiba and Kevin Seconds - Split

A friend of mine didn't have this album, so I thought I'd share it with all. Because it's badass, and I've been on a "Matt Skiba/everything associated with him" frenzy for the past few weeks. By the by, "Good Fucking Bye" is a great song to send to an ex. The album overall is amazing, quality songwriting stripped to the bone.

1. Matt Skiba - Good Fucking Bye
2. Matt Skiba - The City That Day
3. Matt Skiba - Next To You
4. Matt Skiba - In Your Wake
5. Matt Skiba - Soul To Keep (For Phyllis)
6. Kevin Seconds - Extra Something
7. Kevin Seconds - Ugly Mouth
8. Kevin Seconds - 1981
9. Kevin Seconds - Yesteryear
10. Kevin Seconds - Motherfuckers
