I might try and go to the sold out show here in hopes there are some tix available at the box office on the day of.

So, you know, Amber might be damaged goods by the time they get to your neck of the woods.

I picked this up on vinyl this week. I can't tell you how much I really dig the first half of this record, really excellent. The second half I could do without though honestly. Stillness Is The Move is my jam...

Really? Not even No Intention? That's probably my #1 or #2 on the whole album.

And I'm assuming you're including Useful Chamber as a second half song, and that one is just all kinds of epic.

Last song is a bit anti-climactic, I'll admit.

Really? I like a good chunk of the second half, it's not as strong as the first, but still very good. "Useful Chamber" is one of my favorites, I mean the 'Bitte orca, orca bitte' part is amazing to rock out to! I dig "Florescent Half Dome" a lot too. I agree it's a bit anti-climactic as a closer, but it's still a sweet little song.

And it all comes full circle.

So the album title is an homage to Shuttlecock's Cock, Please?


Pretty amazing.

Quite the combination; group covers one of the hippest of hipster bands, so they obviously have good taste, but a cappella boy groups are like the un-hippest things imaginable. Anyone who's been on a college campus knows that.

Look at this fucking HOTTIE

Note: I wouldn't mind attacking that coff with some syrup, if you get my meaning.

I'm trying to decide if I like this or not. I liked the first track, then became increasingly annoyed until Two Doves, which I really liked, and it's gotten better from there.

It's definitely interesting.

Yeah, the guy's vibrato isn't for everyone.

But since I love Shudder to Think, I can handle anyone's.

You don't like Stillness is the Move?

Cori is the FAIL.

I'd have to go back and listen to it again to even remember which one that was. I put it on my Amazon wish list - I will try and pick it up, as I think it'll be a real grower for me.
