    Nice post I’m a big fan of Said the whale have you checked their new video? Its a play on back to the future and although I find the new track somewhat over produced I still dig it.

    If one to take The Pixies and Death Cab for Cutie and put them in a mixer and set on pulse the outcome would be this band. The good thing is I like both of those bands so I’m diggin’ this a lot. You’re running a pretty tight ship my fellow blogger, stop by and see me sometime.
