i love it when you blink your eyes.

For the second night in a row, I've all but conceded not posting and have been greeted with Barsuk Records news.
In a downright predictable - but nonetheless exciting - move, Chris Walla has begun recording a solo album, and will release it through Barsuk in March. You of course now Walla from his work in Death Cab for Cutie, but you're more than likely also familiar with his production and recording work, alongside such bands as The Decemberists, Nada Surf, The Velvet Teen, Hot Hot Heat, and many more.
The solo album, not under his former Martin Youth Auxiliary moniker, should be good. There's not much more that can be said as of now. Listen to a recent Clinic cover he recorded. I've never cared for Clinic, but this song may make me reconsider.*

Chris Walla's "Distortions"

I know you could have read roughly this same thing at forty dozen other locales. Thank you for choosing no one is awake. I went to see Snakes on a Plane for a second time, and am whooped... Pooped? ...P0wn'd?

Today was new release Tuesday, and I got seven packages in the mail. Mind you none of them were actually released today - many quite a while ago - but it does mean quality fuel for the rest of the week. Definitely some good reasons to stay tuned. ...Stay connected? Stay URL'd? Stay p0wn'd?

*I doubt it.
