Teenage Symphony -- Lucky
Teenage Symphony -- Our Best Days Are Behind Us
Our setlists, you ask? Well, okay! We had a few little glitches (spot the electro mishap -- that was totally my fault), but overall we had a really good time. The crowd was fantastic, the Chain Drive staff are darlings, and we totally love Terry for putting together such a great club night -- it really is the most fun regular events going on in Austin, and we're really grateful to be a part of it.

Oh, and while we're on the subject of last night's ... somethings -- is it just us, or has Last Night's Party totes jumped the shark with the 'Barfing Beauties' photoset (follow that link at your own risk, natch)? The drunken boobie shots and naked girls in bathrooms and puppy-piles of pulchritde the site's so well known for were charming to a point, and it always had a bit of a raunchy rep -- but this is just nasty.
In other news, I had to laugh because I got an email from Minty Fresh letting me know that they've released Finnish mellow-popsters Husky Rescue's album Country Falls in the US. You know, two years after the fact. I first heard "Rainbow Flows," with its brilliant reimagining of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" and samples from The Outlaw Josey Wales, on the website of UK music retailer Tunes in 2004, and immediately fell in love. (Of course, my file here would be corrupted, so I can't post it...) I missed the band at SXSW in 2005 due to a painful schedule conflict, but they are playing ACL this year... That's almost enough to make me go! You can grab "Summertime Cowboy" and tracks from Country Falls (including "New Light of Tomorrow," which appeared on an episode of The Sopranos) in a few places -- here's two new ones for you from from the limited UK-only 7" teaser single for their upcoming album Ghost is Not Real, due out in early 2007. (We really hope that doesn't mean it will see release stateside in 2009! Ha!)
