The Rich Girls Are Weeping

26 February 2007

Oh, children. If only you knew how much I loved you. Like about how I spent hours and hours yesterday digging through the best new music to pull together a comeback post to slaughter all comeback posts. It's coming, I swear -- it's currently simmering in the mental crock pot, as it were.

In the meantime, I found out today that Escort has a new single called "A Bright New Life." I don't have an mp3 yet, but you can listen to it and streams a large chunk of their entire oeuvre on their website -- at the top of the homepage, obey when it tells you to 'press play.' GO THERE NOW, YOU CANNOT RESIST IT.

In the meantime, I will whet your appetite with the following namedroppery action: Friday night I rode the elevator with The New Pornographers' AC "Carl" Newman and Blaine Thurier on my way to see Neko Case & Co. at Jazz at Lincoln Center. No one in the elevator seemed to care, and some pretentious asshat blathered loudly about how TOTALLY AWESOME M. Ward is. I was able to attend that show, btw, thanks to the lady behind these pictures and some nice people in the lobby with an extra ticket...long story. The whole show was really as bizarre as that elevator ride, but more on that later...

a complement like that from Cindy is like the teacher giving you a wink and licking their lips after they tell you your term paper was flawless! :)

You've gotta love a bit of Escort. I emailed Dan Balis a while back, pleading with him to come over to Manchester and play. Understandably, logistics are a bit of a problem when it comes to getting flights and accommodation for a 14-piece disco orchestra. A man can but dream though.
