the lucksmiths are totally awesmoe!

Yeah, they are! The Lucksmiths are one of my favorite pop bands these days. I love their sincerity, their peaceful sound, the mellow sound of Tali White's voice and the amazingly strong songcrafting abilities all members of the group possess. They have a new record out on 11/4 called First Frost and I think it's one of their best. Check the Matinée site for more info on that. Here's a video of them rocking (gently, of course)"Great Lengths" from their truly lovely Warmer Corners album in GRapids during their 2006 tour. Goldarn, I wish I had been there!!

bearsuit - more soul than a wigan casino

We saw Bearsuit in Ypsilanti recently and they were pretty amazing. Ask the 5 other people there and they'll tell you. The band didn't wear the cute little caps and I don't remember them playing this song, instead they were decked out in capes and face paint and spent the 30 mins allotted to them (more! more! more! we wanted more!) making a bunch of seriously unfettered racket. Like I said, awesmoe!

They have records out on Microindie and Happy Happy Birthday to Me, both of which we think you should run out and buy immediately!
