Little extras...

Tonight I am away to the NME Show in Edinburgh where I shall be seeing:

Mystery Jets (see past posts)
We Are Scientists (will be a future post on)
Arctic Monkeys (my first time seeing and they aren't even headlining!!!)
Maximo Park (headlining)

I'll put a little report up about this in due time, I really hope it lives up to expectations!

Also, I got a load of CDs this week, every one I enjoyed immensely.

Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins - Rabbit Fur Coat - is an excellent semi-country album that I have found excellent to study to.

Silversun Pickups - Pikul - excellent EP, track 1 Kissing Families is one of my favourite tracks of last year.

Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - you know the score - simply brilliant and although nobody deserves the hype they have had I don't think there are many who would have deserved it better.

Rough Trade - Counter Culture 2005 - excellent annual roundup of the future and the obscure past.

The Rosebuds - Birds Make Good Neighbours excellent soft indie with some incredible lyrics.

I have to thank my favourite blog, Gorilla vs Bear for the heads up on Silversun Pickups and the Rosebuds.

I also have to thank Liz at Come Pick Me Up for both showing a lot of love for my blog, and for starting up one of the best new blogs on the net. Keep it going and I promise I will show the love with a Ryan Adams post very soon!

Later...
