What a week it was…

The week started off with a bang here in the U.S. with the 2006 elections where the Democrats took control of the House and the Senate for the first time in a little over a decade. (NPR) :)
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld resigns. (NPR)

Bloc Party kick off tour and announce UK dates on Tuesday and then Matt Tong (drummer) ends up in the hospital after his lung collapsed after their show on Thursday night. (Pitchfork) Yikes, I wish him a speedy and healthy recovery. And without Tong drumming his heart out they have postponed 3 shows thus far.

These two annoying human beings call it quits…That is really a shame, I mean I didn’t see that coming at all (sarcasm, lots and lots of sarcasm) But really I could care less about their split/divorce/parting what have you, but it does tie into what I really wanted to say:
Why is this guy even showing up on any “Top Song” list? I saw his name pop up a couple of times this week at the Hype Machine and iTunes (not that iTunes says much) but still why are people downloading anything from him and WHY are people actually posting his stuff on blogs? Just stop it. I mean can’t you put your money to better use?
Call me a snob, I care not. If I’m a snob because I don’t think he has any sort of talent then that is just fine with me. Snob city next stop, ding ding.

And as for new music well here are some of my selections from this weeks releases:

Wake Up Wake Up Wake Up (mp3 expired) – Pascal

Buy Dear Sir

We Dance (mp3 expired) – Pavement

Buy Wowee Zowee: Sordid Sentinels Edition
Review: Stylus A+ Approval

Window Seat (mp3 expired) – Librarians

Buy Alright Easy Candy Stranger

Voxtrot released a single, Your Biggest Fan. But since it is a single and there are probably 1001 mp3s floating around the net I will point you to their website where you can check out the band and purchase the CD single for only $3.99 (that’s less than a cup of terrible tasting coffee from Starsucks) or you could also go to their myspace to hear all the songs as they stream.

Okie dokie time for bedums good night and good morning to those who are waking up and good evening to those who are just kicking off their Saturday night.

    That’s not snobbery – it’s just straightforward good sense.

    Well said that Rachel and muchos thankos for the music!

    I would have just said ‘thanks for ..’ but that would have veered dangerously close to an Abba reference and I don’t do Abba in any sense.

    Sweet that makes two of us, never really got into the whole ABBA phenomenon.

    Listen to the Librarians, you will love them!
