  • Whispertown 2000

    I am really in love with the Whispertown 2000 right now. I'll admit - it took me a listen or two to catch on, but their Echo show soon became a favorite of mine and now I can't stop listening to their new Myspace songs. Morgan's voice is atypical, but I think that she's a great songwriter who really makes her voice work for her. Plus - the songs are damn catchy.

    I do kind of wish they were still called Vagtown 2000...

    But. I am totally thrilled that I'll get to see them in March!

    Oh, you know, and Jenny Lewis with The Watson Twins, too.

    I kind of want to marry Jenny's solo album...
    Jenny Lewis with The Watson Twins

    ...Seriously. Soooo good.


    First I'll build a sword get some words to explain
    It's a plan, brother, at least
    And I'll pretend that everybody here wants peace.
    Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on me
    'Cause we're tired and lonely and we're bloody.
    What have we done?
    Why are we still runnin' from our own failing bodies?
    ...The big guns.
