The white military equipment cutouts in the video are rather inventive and cool.

I may be late to the party on this one, but has anyone ever heard "fun."--Aim & Ignite? I just got it yesterday. It's a great record. LA band. This release is from 2009. Very sophisticated R & R. Three guys with help from 12 more people on everything from accordions to violins and bari saxes.

Bob, I recently picked up "Some Nights" by them because of that one song that's everywhere.

Luckily I don't listen to Top 40 radio so it isn't beaten to death for me yet.

Yes, I do. It's catchy and somewhat different.

I'm so enamored of this one, I think I'll pull the trigger on that one, too. Thanks, Sean.

Some other new stuff:

New Beach Boys (WITH Brian WIlson!!)
Not feeble at all! If you like mid/late 70's BB, you will not be disappointed. I had low expectations and have been pleasantly surprised.

New Offspring
More good, simple stuff from the OC's original millionaire punks.

New Little Feat
Not recorded well, watered down old LF sound, i.e. The Boogie's Worn Out. Too bad. It's not like they weren't still viable after Lowell Goerge's death in the late 80's/early 90's.

I just tried out "Fun" via youtube over lunch. Not bad. definately fun. 'Cheery' comes to mind. Maybe a bit too cheery for me. They are like the Elmo of pop.

You also have me on a big "My Chemical Romance" kick, Bob. At least I think it was one of your posts that led me back to them. I never gave them enough credit back when they first came on the scene. I even stumbled across one of their CDs where all their songs are done on solo piano. Very well done.

I think it's time to take the new Rush album out of the cd transport.

Cool. Glad something I mentioned was your kinda thing. I've got such a huge backlog of new CD's to blurb on and I just haven't felt like it. Now I feel more inspired, thanks to you.

(You know how it is when you kept putting off a phone call and now you're even more reluctant, because SO much time has passed, that it's gonna be a much longer call, so now you have even less incentive, but the guilt foments, still? You know that feeling?)

I've got over 40 cd's I haven't made mention of, so-------I'm feeling sleepy now.

Like so many bands (The Shins, Crash Test), My Chemical Romance didn't really deserve that much attention for their first two records, but the kernels of what was to come were there. Last 2 MCR (3rd and 4th) are the way better ones, The Black Parade and Danger Days. They can make an awful lot of in-tune "noise," both instrumentally and vocally, because they figured how to smash together American punk of the 80's/90's (mostly Califorian) and smash it, crash it, into Queen. By the third album, they've got it all together. The first two records are more punk than Queen, then it became the other way around. I've always love them for their publihsing company name: Blow the Doors Off the Jersey Shore Music Scene, Inc.

Good heavens. I had never heard of fun before. I've been listening all morning. I might love them. Thanks, Bob.

Didn't Peter mention them before?

I'm liking this Grouplove song: "Love Will Save Your Soul"
