The Rich Girls Are Weeping

12 September 2006

These three items may or may not be true:

This is the sexiest-sounding song I've heard in ... well, ages, really. Not too sure about the lyrics, though... Sorry to be the last person on this bandwagon, seriously. Everyone was telling me about this record, and for some reason, I just kept acting like I had no idea who Junior Boys were. Duh.

Junior Boys -- In The Morning
Junior Boys -- In The Morning (Alex Smoke remix)
Junior Boys -- Bellona

My neighbor is totally running away with one of the guys in Snow Patrol! For reals! (Or, that's the word on the street anyway...) I think she's already jetted off, all the plants are gone from her balcony. I'm kind of sorry I didn't get a chance to say goodbye. She was the best kind of neighbor -- hardly home, but she threw good parties, and it was always nice to run into her downtown...

Snow Patrol -- Crazy in Love (Beyoncé cover) [eta: it's the right version now!]
Snow Patrol -- Teenage Kicks (The Undertones cover)
Snow Patrol -- The Blower's Daughter (Damien Rice cover)

...oh, and apparently we missed Joanna Newsom playing keyboards at that Smog show @ the Cactus a while back. Gah! Additionally: Now that Mr. Callahan lives here in Austin, I know of at least four perfectly normal, sane women who are totally stalking him! Well -- he's totes stalkable, really!

Smog -- I Break Horses (Peel Session)

I'm seeing Junior Boys this weekend! Woohoo!

Their album has been in heavy rotation for the last couple weeks, I'm in love with it. Pretty much.

Yikes, I've had so many url errors lately. Sorry again, that's what I get for posting in a hurry. It should be working now!

I was under the impression that this "crazy in love" cover was done by The Magic Numbers? It sure sounds like them....
