I had to post this submission, as it is the most targeted song I have ever received! "The Malkin Mash" is a Halloween song done in the style of the Pet Shop Boys and targeted at fans of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Happy Halloween everyone!

Digits is an electronic indie pop artist from Toronto. Musically, it sounds like Erlend Oye fronting a cross between Alaska In Winter and The Postal Service! Enjoying it right now as I attempt to get into my evening groove. Digits' debut album, Hold It Close, is out now.

Started a new job this week, finally. I'm still getting used to waking up at the right time again, so I'm a little behind on my musical homework. Sub Pop is releasing a remastered version of Nirvana's Bleach on November 3rd, and have made the classic "About A Girl" available for download. It's been a while...crank it up!

Found this cover of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire" courtesy of a couple friends and Gimme Tinnitus. Very cool take - it's all post-punk now with more shout-singing!

Whew, finished DJing my first wedding this weekend. Interesting lifestyle....anyway, San Francisco's Girls have been really hitting the spot recently. Pure 60's guitar pop in the vein of Elvis Costello or the Beach Boys. Definitely check out the album!

Hot news today is the announcement of a new Vampire Weekend cd! Contra will be released January 12th, 2010, and the guys have so generously provided a free download of the first track, "Horchata". Not sure what Ezra is doing singing about drinking horchata when it's cold outside, but I'll allow it...
