So the pledge drive is finally over and Music is My Girlfriend can get back to its regular programming. For me, this meant doing a show consistingly almost entirely of new music. Last night's show was really fun as I had things planned out well and was able to concentrate solely on the music and making things flow. I think it was one of my best shows to date. I probably wouldn't play the Polyphonic Spree MLS stadium anthem "HOOPS Yes!" again, but every show deserves one miscue I guess.
There are alot of great new releases out right now, and thankfully we have pretty much all of them in the studio. Most of all I am really impressed by the new releases from Okkervil River and Bishop Allen. Check them out if you get a chance.
Finally, you may notice the new look for the site. I spent a good chunk of this morning working on that header so you had better like it.
