hey, want to win tix for two to coachella? all ya have to do is visit this link, which will take you to causecast dot org, sign up – which is free, and answer some questions to their inauguration quiz. sounds simple enough, i suppose. i havent participated, as of yet, but definitely plan on it…

i am still making up my mind on minny’s yer cronies and their record when i grow up. i am staying with em cause  of this quote by mr ben rbidwell of band of horses:

“Upon my seeing my first Yer Cronies show I was convinced that this was the best new band in Minneapolis. Now finally getting to hear the record, I’m convinced they’re one of the best new bands anywhere. I love the way this sounds.”

there’s definitely something here that’s kept my interest, but there’s also something holdin back my love. as you may or may not be surprised by they kind of, at least musically, remind me of band of horses but with a flair for jazzy riffs, and throw in some fleet foxes for good measure. sounds like it should be a gay ol time, and it is, mostly, i think…
