Recommended Tuesday Show: Japandroids, A Place To Bury Strangers, Dustin Wong, and Grooms at Death By Audio

Rested up from CMJ yet?  Great!  That’s good.  Because this is one of those “holy crap” kind of shows.  I would have recommended this show just for Grooms and Dustin Wong.  But A Place To Bury Strangers?  Japandroids??

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 10-1

To recap:  As for My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009, I made a few rules for myself.  First, a band can only appear once.  Also, this is purely about singles I enjoy.  For instance, I would never put Harlem Shakes’ Technicolor Health on my favorite albums list, but “Sunlight” made it pretty high on this list […]

Sweet (Not So New) Song: "Young Hearts Spark Fire" by Japandroids
