A hundred miles off is closer than you think


A Hundred Miles Off, the third release from The Walkmen, is set to be released on May 23. During my subway ride today, I read the write up on The Walkmen in the Spring issue of FILTER. The article reminded me of how wonderful Bows + Arrows sounds, and how uniquely expressive Hamilton Leithauser's voice is.

There are some great mariachi horns on this song that give it a laid back, beachy vibe; you can almost smell the suntan lotion. And as we learned from "Ring of Fire," a mariachi band makes everything better.

Don't forget to check out the latest darlings rocking my iPod: The Envy Corps. After listening to "Rhinemaidens," I ordered their EP I Will Write You Love Letters If You Tell Me To. I have to say it was one of the best $8 investment I have made in a while.

The Envy Corps: Rhinemaidens
Download some tracks, stream more songs at their myspace page, be their friends, and buy the album. Then I promise I will stop harassing you.

Have you heard of the Brooklyn band Tigercity? This four-piece has a bass-y pop sound that will get your feet moving. And I have to admit that I brushed my teeth while bouncing around to "Timecard." Minty fresh and booty inspired.

Tigercity: Timecard
Tigercity: Are You Sensation
Tigercity: Cloakrooms

How to choose a suitable target in cable and the cabal online alz? You should compensate him by giving him some cabal alz, and then Pvp or PK. Normal monsters; you have to lure a handful of monsters with cabal gold so that switching between them can be easier. There are many benefits to guild in cabal money. When you buy cabal alz, it is not still deal high amounts of damage.
