I feel so out of the loop for not hearing about Mathieu Santos’ (Ra Ra Riot’s bassist) side project. Apparently, the songs from his album Massachusetts were written when Ra Ra Riot was recording The Orchard in Massachusetts. Bravo Mr. Santos, your album brightened up my day.
The other night, while my friend was attempting to convince me to go to Bonnaroo (primarily by showing me the recently announced line-up), I was pleasantly surprised to see Grouplove was announced in this first batch of performers. I think I’ve quite possibly played the shit out of this song for the past year or so, without ever tiring of it. Plus, its a solid music video.
Saw Slow Club last night at DC9, on their first tour of the United States. They were fantastic despite Rebecca being under the weather. Though I must say I was horribly disappointed that they absolutely would not indulge their long time fans with any of their old songs (even when requested). This is especially disappointing since those state side have not had the opportunity to see them perform these songs ever before. So, here is an old song to make up for it.
