friday i’m in love with THE FAINT.

The Faint was and still is one of those bands with such a unique sound no one can copy.

I am a HUUGE fan of their previous albums which happened to not have much hype previously but got the critics waxing lyrical.

They have kept up the standard over the past few albums with their brand of dancey music and they took this a step further by releasing it independently on their own label this time (blank.wav records) after leaving saddle creek records.

They have got a new album out this week in US called Fasciination and having heard it I must say its The Faint at their best once again.

Dance/New Wave bands seldom sound this awesome.

I’m giving all you guys a really really mad remix of their single by Does it offend you yeah?

You have no idea what you are getting yourself into.

These geeks got it bloody bloody right.

bright eyesmushaboom (live feist cover)

whenever i hear the bird and the bee they remind me a
lil bit of feist/the hush sound/jenny lewis and the lalala band kind.a friend of mine coined that term and i dont know how to describe it but yeah it really hits the spot.the albums self-titled and its really really good for afternoons and wishin for sunshine.
the bird refers to greg kurstin and the bee is inara george.remember fools in love?yup its her.greg has helped in producing albums for the likes of lily allen,beck,flaming lips and more so you can expect something outta him.

the bird and the beei’m a broken heart
the bird and the beei hate camera (rec’d)
