and what's cooler than chicks who rock?

Chicks who DJ

Today I got a mixer! But I'm not allowed to play with it until after the bar exam as that is what the prudent bar applicant would do.

It a cool feeling though to as the only other instrument i've ever had is a baby grand piano, and well you just can't pick those up pet them the way you can a mixer.

Feldheim Revival X (Angela Vs. Jafar - Battle of the Sexes)

So after seeing Joanna Newsom and Bjork on the same stage I've been on a bit of a chick kick recently. Angela (another awesome chick) aptly hawked some more girl power your way, and since this blog is named after a female, I say we throw down in a sort of metaphorical pillow fight.

Since my avatar is Middle Eastern, no one has the right to describe my comments as bigoted, sexist, racist, or any other -ist. I simply follow Sharia law. Angela, being a woman, also finds herself immune. Plus, we're both promoting, so don't get your panties in a bunch (NSFW).

Prefaces aside, I bring to you Electrelane. For those of you unfamiliar, Electrelane is a British female four piece, and their new album is pretty fucking fantastic. Electrelane is like the perfect Disneyland ride when you were a kid. The happy parts are happy, the scary parts are scary, and the drugs you're on enhance the psychedelic moments. Plus, you've just started getting into chicks, and now there's four of them hitting all the notes you want them to hit. All you need is an $8.00 cheeseburger.

Electrelane is currently playing/opening for The Arcade Fire. Since Neon Bible is nothing more than a mediocre album, one wonders who should be opening in the first place. This album has everything Arcade Fire doesn't. Namely DISTORTION, ANGST, and (Somewhat) CREATIVE DRUMMING.

There isn't a bad song on this album. Notables include Saturday & Five.

Well done.
