5 Monday Music Thoughts

* Does anyone else creep themselves out at night by turning out all the lights, getting drunk, and putting on The Knife’s Silent Shout?

* The new …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead album, The Century Of Self, is absolutely blowing my mind. I’m tempted to declare it their best album ever. “Isis Unveiled,” in particular, won’t leave my brain at the moment.

* Is anyone else disappointed that this week’s Flight Of The Conchords iTunes single is “Carol Brown,” instead of “Too Many Dicks On The Dancefloor?”

* Smashing Pumpkins announced that their second album, Swoon, comes out April 14. And by Smashing Pumpkins, I mean Silversun Pickups. Bwa ha ha! “Well Thought Out Twinkles” was a good single, though…

* I completely missed out on the fact that Dirty Pretty Things released their second album last summer. I also missed out on the fact that they broke up shortly thereafter. Ex-Libertines members sure have a short shelf-life when it comes to their musical endeavors. Regardless, I will remember the show at the Fonda in August of ‘06 forever. Thank you, guys...

  1. I wish I could say I do also creep myself out by turning off the lights, getting drunk and listening to The Knife's. I am however also very disappointed that "Too many dicks on the dance floor" didn't make #1. But I heart you for putting that video on your blog because it made my day! (I've never heard it or seen it before)
