Is summer here? Really?

So here in Boston, the weather just won't stay the same. I spent all of last week sick as a dog, and eventually even lost my voice. Imagine trying to work tending bar without much of a voice. It didn't really bother me much, to be honest. But this weather? Needs to get a bit stable. Seriously. Anyhow, this post has a bit of summer in it. The rest? Is a newer track that's been getting a bit of play as of late.

So for those that don't know about Broken Social Scene yet, you're missing out. They're a strange group in that they never keep a steady set of band members. When I saw them live a few years back, I think they had about 15 people on stage at any one time. It's crazy but awesome at the same time. I believe I've said it before, but they do remind me of a jam band, but in much better a way. These guys have this strange cohesiveness to their music. Which made me a bit surprised when I heard this song. It's off of their latest album, Forgiveness Rock Record. The track is "All To All" and is a departure of sorts from their typical indie-rock sound, as they steer more towards a light electronic route. It's a refreshing change, and smacks of what you would hear during summer. Enjoy!

Next is the latest release from LCD Soundsystem. Now, "Drunk Girls" I found rather unimpressive, and so far, this new track "Pow Pow" - off of their just released album This is Happening - doesn't really hit me as all too wonderful. Although, some of the lyrics are subtly hinting at people just shutting the fuck up (I'm looking at you, Obama-haters), which I enjoy. This is the typical LCD Soundsystem sound we've grown accustomed to, however, so I am sure this is one that will grow on me.

As usual, go buy some stuff. You don't wanna be "that guy", now do you?
