Last Thoughts Before Bed.

"Do I Wanna Know?" by Arctic Monkeys is a top notch song in my book. The music is perfectly placed. To me, it almost seems cocky at certain points, and it’s doing that by sound alone. The lyrics are on point. I mean isn’t this a killer line:

Baby we both know/That the nights were mainly made for saying things you can’t say tomorrow day

I also enjoy the uneasiness of this line:

Do I wanna know?/If this feeling flows both ways

This song is made for the nighttime when a drink resides in your hand. Well done Alex Turner.

Get to Know- Apparently I’m on a Brit kick tonight. I just listened to the Foals RSD release. “Late Night” is as amazing as I imagined. I just reblogged an Arctic Monkeys song. Now I’m posting Klaxons. I came across their debut album in my massive iTunes collection after my shower. It’s been awhile since I gave it a listen, but within a few songs, I was reminded how good it is. Myths of the Near Future is the album in case you’re curious (You should be). Some awesome musicians (Kavinsky, Justice, Crystal Castles, and SebastiAn to name a few) remixed songs from the album with fantastic results. Look for those too while you’re at it. I decided on posting this song because I feel like most people are aware of the Blackstreet version (It’s a 90’s song and will be played at the 90’s party). They did a solid job on this cover. I’m picky about covers because I feel like most bands ruin the song. This result went well. I hope you enjoy it too. On a final note, I feel like people that like MGMT would like Klaxons if you want a comparison.

Get to Know- “Stop the World I Wanna Get Off with You” Arctic Monkeys. I bought the deluxe edition vinyl of AM because of this song. I love it. I could repeat it constantly with no problems at all. They are playing Pittsburgh on June 17, roughly a week before I head to Phoenix. God, I’d love to go to that show. I wish AM would have been out when they opened for The Black Keys. They hit the mark with that album with a direct hit.

Getting ready to write down all my totals from the past two days. I have a feeling I may start weeping when I see what’s coming out of my account. I had a lot of fun at RSD this year. Walking around Pittsburgh in the nice weather afterwards just added to the already great experience. As I said earlier on one of my Instagram photos, I can’t wait to move to Phoenix. City life is definitely what I need. Two months to go! I will miss everyone here. Hopefully I meet some special people in Phoenix.

After a long day of buying records, right here is where I want to spend the rest of my day. I loved exploring Pittsburgh.

A 20 hour drive from Phoenix to Portland for a concert seems sensible, right?

Showbread is getting back together for one night only to play No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical in its entirety. It would be a dream to go to this show! I’ll be in Phoenix by then so I’m not super far from Portland… It’d be one heck of a road trip but totally worth it. I love this album from front to back and have been wanting to see a pressing of it on vinyl for a long time (Get to it Tooth & Nail!). I saw them in ‘05 at a music festival. They put on an awesome show that day, and we talked about horror movies after the show. Now if I can find a few folks in Phoenix who like Showbread and/or road trips we might be able to make this happen.
