Giant Steps by The Boos might be the best record ever. Music that is pure pop and insanely experimental at the same time. Radiohead should take notes.

Some of you may have heard of them but most havent. I saw them in concert a year ago and they were great. Although I bought their CD and I dont think their recorded work captures how they are live as a band. That reminds me of another band from Ireland when they were starting out.
My best friend is from Mountmellick, so Ive heard of a number of relatively obscure Irish bands. He keeps bitching about how they should open for U2 instead of the proposed Snow Patrol. (He's in the US now, of course. In the Air Force)

I actually think it's "chick chick chick."

cheers to being a college radio nerd. I am --200 proof, baby. I was station manager last year. ok and i'm going to brag a bit: we were named best college radio station by Spin magazine. Spin blows, but that's kewl anyway.

Hem (Brooklyn-based, sort of dreamy alt-country/pop)
Wally Pleasant (sort of a more sarcastic Weird Al, in a way, except he does all original songs--he's out of Michigan)
Mighty Fine Wine (local jam-type band, pretty good)
Barefoot (another band local to me--it's made up entirely of really Christian high school kids, but they're really good!)
Dar Williams (she's actually pretty well-known in folkie circles, but I don't think I'd ever heard anyone mention her here)
Lucy Kaplansky (same as Dar Williams)
Cry Cry Cry (a band that Dar Williams and Lucy Kaplansky were both in)

I'll mention her then.

Dar Williams has a great song called 'As Cool As I Am'.

I put one of her songs on a mix CD for all my friends when we graduated from college--"You're Aging Well" from her first CD. I also have a live version of that song with a guest vocal from Joan Baez.

I dont mind what I've heard of them, but there is something very wrong with the singer. Is he ill? O does he just look very odd?


He's from Finland. That should say it all.
