Self-deprecating narcissism aside, here are the things that I've been bursting to say I saw before anyone else; in order of how much time I've been wasting on them (wait a second..):
<- 1) Hours after my #PomplamoosePost, Google Chrome just released a free version of Angry Birds. Ever since, I've been getting 2 hours less sleep every night. #FML.
2) For those of you that know me, you probably know that I'm a pretty big @Hollerado fan. These guys are bringing back the "rock" in indie-rock. Think Weezer if they got drunk more and Rivers Cuomo wasn't such a #douche. I posted their newest music video on my old Tumblr. It's off their first album, "Record In A Bag"
Anyway, a video just surfaced of them playing a 'new-ish' song that they've been playing live for a while. It's off their newly released EP "Margaritaville II: The Reckoning" (which I just realized today had already come out, but that's a rant for another time.) I like the way they blend "still-sounding-like-the-band-they-were-on-the-first-record" with "not-just-remaking-their-first-album"
"Way down low, but I got somebody to love"3) A new track from @JamesBlake. Pretty standard JB track...sounds like a record player being scanned onto a computer and then being printed back out onto glossy paper. Enjoy:

4) In the time I've taken to write this post, I've found something else 'new' I wanna share with the world. Danger Mouse + Daniele Luppi + Jack White + Norah Jones = nuff said.
