Tweedy covers Neil Young

Here's Tweedy covering Neil Young's When Your On The Losing End. This was recorded at the Rocky Mountain Folk Festival in 2006. This song originally appeared on Neil Young's album, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, which is a Stay Classy fav. Great song, enjoy.

Phoenix just released a new single that is available as a free download at their website -
I kinda love this song and love the Flash intro on their website even more. Nice work!
Phoenix is kinda great anyway - their new album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix will be out in May.

Animal Collective :: My Girls

This song has been heavy in the rotation for the past couple weeks. The video is all right too.
Animal Colllective will be playing Granada HoB in June, let's go! I love their Brian Wilson-sque harmonies. Merriweather Post Pavillion is the album's name, available now and worth the 10 bucks on itunes.

Bang Camaro Live @ HOB Garage Friday

Bang Camaro is rolling through Dallas on Friday, playing at the House of Blues Pontiac Garage at 10:30. I saw these guys last time they rolled into town and it was a blast. If you like to rock, get on out to the House of Blues and check out a truely unique spectacle, Bang Camaro. They are also playing a show in Austin at Emo's on Saturday if any of the Austin readers are interested. I will most certainly be at the Dallas show ready to rock. By the way, Bang Camaro just came out with a new album, Bang Camaro II. Actually it came out today. I haven't heard much besides what is on their myspace page, but sounds like more of the same awesome. You can check it out here, Bang Camaro myspace.

Also you may know their song, Pleasure - which was a track on Rock Band.

In the spirit of the season, I thought I should post one of my favorite horror films of all time. The original Night of the Living Dead. The undead is definitely my favorite horror theme, and this is the film that set the tone. Directed by George Romero in 1968, Night of the Living Dead was the most graphic, goriest film to date. The film also made way for both the slasher and splatter film sub-genres.
I love the hypothetical situation that a zombie infection presents. What would you do if this happened tomorrow morning? Judging by what I have seen, the best idea is to have a radio close at hand to listen to the emergency broadcast. Hopefully other survivors have barricaded themselves in a base and will be broadcasting their location. If that is not an option, then get your ass down to the mall. If you haven't seen this film, it is definitely worth stopping down for an hour or so and watching it, definitely a cool flick.
