One more month.

At that point, I will probably be gushing over it as well.

I have also been listening to Cocteau Twins lately and am beginning to think that Beach House owes them style royalties or something.

Were you into Cocteau Twins before? I've never heard you talk about them.

Perhaps that parallel is why I love Beach House so much; Cocteau Twins are just as awesome.

I just started over the last two weeks. I've heard Treasure and Heaven or Las Vegas. Both $3 at Reckless.

Pink Floyd songs that were played on the "Top 500 Rock Songs" countdown that I listened to on the radio this Memorial Weekend-

1. Brain Damage/Eclipse (counted as one song)
2. Have A Cigar
3. Time
4. Young Lust
5. Money
6. Hey You
7. Wish You Were Here
8. The radio station announced they were going to play another one just as we lost the signal. At number 65, so they may have played more.

Beatles songs they played during the countdown:
1. Come Together
2. Revolution

7 Floyd songs and 2 Beatles songs seems very strange to me.

11. Sufjan Stevens: Seven Swans
12. The Horrors: Primary Colours
13. Los Campesinos!: We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
14. Bat for Lashes: Two Suns

Get Innocuous!
New York, I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down
North American Scum

Sound of Silver is my least favorite of the three, despite having his two best songs on it. The fact that we can generally agree on what the good and not-so-good songs is a bad thing.

The two are pretty close for me, but I think Silver just gets the edge. It feels the most cohesive of his three albums. Dance Yrself Clean is an absolute beast, though, the caliber of song that most artists spend their whole careers trying to make.
