We went to see Hot Chip last night here in town and it was a killer show. The live show sounds different then their albums, but it really works well. They are playing at ACL this weekend, if you are headed there be sure to check them out. Headed down there myself this evening. Going to see Okkervil at Emo's tomorrow night, tickets are still available I think if anyone wants jump on board.
Here is a clip of one of their live shows - enjoy your weekend!

It has been a pretty long while since I have posted any original content, so I thought I would bring back the Sampler Series. Once again for those who don't know, this is a selection of cool new songs from bands that are sort of new to the scene. I comb through a bunch of new tracks every week and these are some of the best ones I have come across over the past couple weeks. I haven't checked but I know that most of these albums are available on itunes - so if you like one of the tracks, go get it!

Sparkadia - Animals
The Presets - If I Know You
Arsenal - Estupendo
Music Go Music - Reach Out
Snob Scrilla - Mr. Officer (feat. Del The Funky Homosapien)
Empire of the Sun - Walking On A Dream

Also, we have ACL coming up this week, which means that a bunch of bands will be rolling through the area. Here are the highlights:

Del the Funky Homosapien - Thursday, 9/25
