More of This

3/23 Show
KBUT finally received the new albums from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (right after I purchased it on iTunes) and The Decemberists, so it was a mildly exciting day at the studio. Among the endless photo blog posts from SXSW, there were some good new tunes posted, so enjoy the links this week. Thanks to Kyle's friend Bill who started the Someday I'll be Dignified & Old blog that inspired the first 4 songs of the day.

Wishing I Was in Austin

3/16 Show
Yep, I'm totally missing out on the fun in Austin this week. Maybe next year when I don't have an epic backcountry ski race to prepare for. I did, however, DJ at a crazy Robot Dance Party on Monday night that almost made up for not being at SXSW.

Played lots of "older" tracks this week, meaning songs I might have played a year or two ago but haven't since then. Check out the new EP from Surf City, hosted by Kyle's friend on his new blog "Someday I'll be Dignified and Old".

3/9 Show
Bad news found its way to Music is My Girlfriend headquarters Monday morning as I learned the upcoming Cut Copy ("MIMG's Best Album of 2008" winner) show in Denver had sold out. Chances of scoring free tickets through KBUT are dwindling, so I may be standing outside the Bluebird on Sunday night pestering concert goers for tickets. Naturally, I mourned this development by playing several Cut Copy songs.

On the bright side, KBUT's home page will now display the Song Title and Artist of each song I play in real-time. Its a pretty cool feature, and I was happy to be the Guinea Pig for it today during my show.
