It's perfect and worth it...

im in ur side / stealin ur heartz


/sigh

When I am dead tired, I ramble. So I will spare you a lot of reading today.

American Analog SetThe song today is by the band American Analog Set, an indie band from Austin. As far as I can tell...they have fallen off the map. At least under this name. The last album they released was in 2005. They have not toured since the beginning of 2006. Which is a shame. In the genre of subtle, hypnotic pop (is there a name for this genre specifically?) they are kings.

I submit for your approval:

punk as fuck.

I'm on your side
And we're always right
It's perfect
And worth it

You're on my side
And we're always right
It's a circuit
It gets worse yet

I'm on your side
And we're always right
It's a circuit
It gets worse yet

So leave me to die in the comfort
Of my own home
Of my own home
Of my own

Is it about a relationship that is SO great it sucks?

I don't know. That what I think. But there is a line in the song that we have taken as a motto.

I'm on your side
And we're always right


In regards to this blog...it means that we are on the side of the musicians.
...it means we are on the side of the listener/reader.
...it means we stand behind you. We SUPPORT you.
...we buy your music and we share it with our friends.
...we go to your shows and buy your merch.

...and the title of the song kicks ass too... Isn't it beautiful to create something, or be a part of something that you can say is "punk as fuck"? True to the DIY ethos of punk... we did it our own way and we still are, every day. It's perfect, and worth it.

Most of the bands we love and we feature are punk as fuck.
