New song testing-

Hey guys, testing some new formats- let me know what you think.... do you prefer the videos or just the audio tracks? the audio should make the pages load a lot faster-

Here is a little playlist for thursday, or whenever you listen to this... If you hit play on the first song I *think* it should cycle through all of them-

Middle East - The Darkest Side

The National - So Far Around the Bend

Phoenix - Rome

JayZ, Coldplay - A Life of Clocks

24 February, 2010

Clearly this band is named for me.

Very good. very good.

Also, with the new format i have, i can put on bigger videos... that puts me in a good mood.

The Tallest Man on Earth - Where do my bluebird fly

The Tallest Man on Earth - I won't be found

The Tallest Man on Earth - the gardener

The Tallest Man on Earth - King of Spain


Hey guys- here is another 2 songs... hope you like-

ALSO, I have been posting more often lately, but with less songs per post... any feedback? Do you prefer the 1/week with a bunch of songs, or a couple times per week with only 1 or 2 songs?

Bear in Heaven - You Do You

Surfer Blood - Swim (To Reach the End)

I forgot this one, its been seemingly on repeat on XMU for a couple days and it almost took me that long to decide whether I liked it or not... I will let you decide i guess-
