One Last Post Before I Go

Alright so this is going to probably be a puny post filled with a bunch of random mp3s. You kids like those, yeah? Okay well good. I'm not going to be posting for the next three days as I'll be in Louisiana.

The Shins-When I Goosestep (Chris has some other Shins B-sides/rarities, and some new Devendra Banhart if that's your bag)
Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice-Cobra Christ of the Cabbages
Interpol-The Specialist
Kings of Leon-The Bucket
Spoon-The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine

While I'm gone, do you see all those links on the right? Well, use them. All of them. They're good, I promise. Two cool new ones to me, Uni Finalist and Like Flies on Sherbert.

Expect ACL Fest updates Monday. On a sad note, Sleater-Kinney has dropped out of ACL Fest for some reason or another. Boo! The Kaiser Chiefs have been bumped up from their Friday 1:30 spot to Sleater-Kinney's Sunday 3:30 spot. Waah! Oh well. They're touring the US with old-time pals Pearl Jam.
