I’m a huge sucker for this band. This album is sweet and makes me wish the sun was out.
YES PLEASE. Such a fantastic cover. I’ve been dying to hear a studio version of I Need My Girl and thrilled it’s on this album. High fives all around.
And it comes out the day I start my new job, so I’ll have the most awesome work music.
And that guy from the thing, too!
(Kristen Schaal as president. John Slattery as the pining security guard.)
For their bit about the Britney Spears song, they parenthetically wrote: “Fact: In 2011, pretty much any song in the world could be made infinitely better by the addition of a Nicki Minaj verse.”
The most under appreciated video of the year is the National’s video for “Conversation 16.” It’s hilarious!
Last night at the Toronto concert, Owen Pallett joined them for I Need My Girl.
My heart stopped a little bit. It was beautiful.
I know it’s cool to hate on Zooey Deschanel, but goddamn it I love her voice, She & Him, and every goddamn adorable thing about this.
(Except for Leno.)
You know, it might be more of the same, but I’m not expecting them to revolutionize the genre at this point. It’s a nice little track and makes me excited to hear the rest of the album.
This video is entirely awesome.
I think I’ve found the best birthday present to myself.
Why is it that Christina Aguilera decided to take twenty steps back in terms of the lyrical content of her music? You would think being married and having a kid would influence the direction her music would go. But is she really just … making music that she thinks will sell?
Ohmygod YES. I’m so excited for this album to come out, along with many others being released in May. (and June, and all of this year. Such a good year for music!)
Ugh, why are they so freaking fabulous? Lovelovelove.
