The Thermals have a new track called “Separate.”  It’s catchy and I like it. It’s nothing mind-blowing but it’s definitely worth a listen.

Hear Ya has their list of recommended shows in Chicago for this month. I guess I shouldn’t have waited on the Morning Benders show. It’s sold out.

You can listen to a stream of Nothing Hurts by Male Bonding here.

Captains Dead has the Sleater-Kinney BBC Sessions. It has me feeling nostalgic for the days when I’d listen to KTRU and they played “I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone” all the time.

And finally, She & Him played Letterman:


The Hold Steady released another new song today, “The Weekenders.” It’s probably my favorite of their new songs so far. Can’t wait to jump around to it the next time I see them. Listen to “The Weekenders” here.

This is why I don’t like big shows in Chicago. Apparently the Spoon show @ Aragon kind of sucked. Now I don’t feel so bad about missing it. I saw them once at Emo’s back in college and I don’t think it’ll get better than that. Here’s is Kot’s review of the Aragon performance. I guess the sound was pretty bad. Now that I think about, when I saw Tegan & Sara there last week, it was nearly impossible to hear Tegan singing.

Stereogum has a Progress Report with Ra Ra Riot. Sounds like the next album will be great.

Murder by Death have their new album, Good Morning Magpie streaming. I’ve listened to a few tracks so far. Pretty good from what I have heard. I love that the first two tracks have bourbon and whiskey in their respective titles. I really need to buy tickets for their show next month but I keep forgetting.

Pitchfork talks up “Year’s Not Long” by Male Bonding. It’s a good song with infectious energy.

No surprise here but the new Band of Horses song is great. Too bad they aren’t doing a headlining tour anytime soon.
