EP listened to this morning:
Ben Folds Super D
I finally got it. Weeks (maybe a month) after it's been out. The final EP in the trilogy is now in my life. Having Ben's version of "Get Your Hands Off of My Woman" is worth the price alone. The other tracks are very worthwhile (especially "Adelaide"), but enough with all the teases of an EP! Until the new record comes out, I'll throw together a comp of all three EPs.
Feeling back to normal this morning, so I'm ready for the weekend. Shows to attend tonight and Saturday and Halloween is Sunday night. Should be the opposite of last weekend's lack of activities.
I got to hear some of the Arcade Fire last night. I liked what I heard and I want to hear more.
Pitchfork has a daily double of good news: Stereolab is releasing a new compilation and Mark Kozelek has some new material in the works.
Aimee Mann has a live DVD coming out next Tuesday. Rolling Stone has more info. I love this quote from her: "It's hard to put a greatest hits together when you don't have any hits -- you have to aim in a different direction. But there's songs I know that people request or sometimes there's songs I feel like playing."
Talked to a friend that saw . . . And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead last night. I will definitely be seeing them next month. I saw them play on the Source Tags and Code tour and it was utterly insane.
