  • The Hazards of Love

    Mar 13 2009, 0:18

    Starting with early August 2007, my love for pretentious indie bands was formed. Now I can't help it. I am indie, I breathe indie, I live indie.

    The Decemberists are still at the top of my hit list, and by far my favourite band ... ever. I love them so much. I never used to have one, but by golly, so I love them Decemberists.

    I am falling slowly in love with the new album, it is starting to envelope me like I've never been enveloped by a album ever before.

    I hope like hell I can go to the concert in May.
  • The BJM - September 4th, 2008 - Wellington, NZ

    Set 5 2008, 11:14

    Thu 4 Sep – The Brian Jonestown Massacre

    This was a simply amazing concert. Not only did I have a great time with the music, but outside of the music was pretty special too.

    I didn't know the stuff played well enough to write up a setlist, but it had so much energy and was definitely worth every cent of the $41 I paid to go! It was an epic length, too - almost two hours, I think. It had a real aura to it. Shame there weren't any pass outs, but it didn't matter. Plenty to keep me occupied!

    Will definitely see them again if they head this way. Not one to forget this night easily!

  • The Decemberists

    Ago 11 2007, 2:40

    I cannot stop listening to The Decemberists. I am especially addicted to Shankill Butchers and Clementine. It's a new found addiction and I can't seem to shake it. I think I must've done like 400+ plays this week. Craziness.

    I need a new addiction to get rid of my horrible, horrible top 10.

    Ew.
