All the other girls here are stars, you are the northern lights

After my nearly month long hiatus I'm back. I've been home for Christmas break and had some life-changing ish goin on. I'm not going back to Mizzou next semester, but instead just knockin' some classes out at Heartland. Livin' at home and enjoying our fast internet there and hopefully getting a job I enjoy (I despise you food industry). I have however gotten a good deal of tunes over the past couple of weeks and I think it's about time I tell all five people who read this about them.

I tried catching up on all the big stuff I missed over the past year when I got home and caught some winners. A couple records that really caught my ear were:

Comets on Fire- Avatar, This record just rocks, plain and simple. It's big and messy and sounds like it's some lost gem from the seventies. Drug addled guitar music that you need

Annuals- Be He Me, A great, atmospheric pop record. Don't get me wrong, it's not Spiritualized or Mercury Rev or something, but it's expansive and just real pretty.

While I really have enjoyed the indie rock I've caught up on in the past few weeks the record that has really grabbed me is the new Dierks Bentley album, Long Ride Alone. Now I know you're all like "Can he say that?" But it's such a solid country record and it's miles ahead of the other popular country polluting listener's ears these days.

Also, when I decide to peace out to Hollywood or New York and begin an acting career and get all famous and ish Ima just holler at this lady, and be all like "sup, let's listen to the new Bloc Party record and ditch paparazzi."

rock n roll,
