Song Of The Week

Ride Friendship by The Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt!

I wanted to describe The Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt as being one of the most fun bands I’ve ever listened to, but that doesn’t seem to be the best word. Really, they just took the exact bursts of energy/emotion spasms that come from random things like just realising you love the shit out of all your friends, or a snow day that you spend running around like a kid, or seeing your ex and wanting to say silly things, and they put it into crazy dance-type music.
And it all happens to be insanely uplifting! eg. the album title:
 I love you. I love you. I love you and I’m in love with you. Have an awesome day! Have the best day of your life!

Song Of The Week

Magic by Only Son


I first heard of this guy when he opened for Regina Spektor a few years ago. My sister and I went to see her at Toad’s Place, and after seeing him open, we bought the cd from his tiny section of the merch table.
He is really excellent! I’m glad he is getting more recognition now. He totally deserves it.


you gotta wanna be the drummer in the band
