What ever happened to the Plain White T’s? Thats a question I asked my self a couple nights ago. They havn’t been in the studio for some time but they do say that their new album is coming out within the year.

“Hey There Delilah” was the love song of, oh lets say, 8th grade. Am I right? Who could have written better chords and lyrics? Many people have been through a situation in a relationship similar to our hero of the song. That in my opinion is what makes this song so good.

Well I was not the only person so in love with this song. Below is a youtube video of a man performing the greatest rendition of “Hey There Delilah” I have ever seen. I think you will thoroughly enjoy it.

I seriously cant make this stuff up.

Ah, there is nothing like waking up in the AM one summer day and walking out upon the beach, feet in the cool sand, looking at the sunrise, without ┬áhaving a care in the world. My buddies, my palls, my compadres, The Morning Benders, have written this song “Excuses” just for that occasion.

When you listen to the slow melodic chimes, and soothing voice accompanied by the summers’ instrument of choice, the tambourine, you can almost envision your self around a sandy campfire, singing kumbaya, having a good ol’ time. This is my personal summer jam of choice, my creme de la creme of a song which offers one of the catchiest hymms a group of Berkeley kids had to offer, im talking about ” dum, duh dum, duh duum”.

The Morning Benders are a relatively new band(2008), but they have toured with the biggies, MGMT, Death Cab, and The Kooks, just to name a few. As of today though, you can find them touring with one of my favorite colabo bands, Broken Bells, I had the luck to see their tour kick off at Humphry’s by the Bay in San Diego. What an amazing show i might add.

For some, The AM Benders may be an acquired taste, but i hope I’m contributing to the soundtrack of Summer ’10.

Summer, a time for mojitos, picnics, road trips, and swimming. But, for LCD Soundsystems James Murphy, summer is the time for Drunk Girls. LCDS’s latest and possibly last album, “This is Happening”, has been gaining radio play on Siruis XM”s Alt Nation, where it was named summer jam of 2010. They say when you hear this song in 20 years youll remember all the fun times of Summer ’10, all the drunk girls waiting in line to pee, and so forth.
