formerly The Whitey on the Moon UK, Department of Eagles are comprised of NYU roomates Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear and Fred Nicolaus. October 2008 saw the release of their second LP In Ear Park with lead single “No One Does It Like You”. its simple stompy beat, minor harmonies and refined but messy reverb tones deliver refreshing, ambitious and innovative pop. digginz the eerie gospel meets barber shop quartet feel.
when we first learned of uk artist florence and the machine, we though, oh yeah, this must be a cool new band or summat, right? WRONG FUCKERS! naw dude, florence and the machine is actually just one person. wild, right? and that one person is london, uk artist kate bush. so yeah, it’s pretty dope to have ms. bush back on the scene and we’re psyched on the upcoming release of her ninth LP “lungs”, due july 6 on island.
Swedish folk from Montezumas frontman Krille Mattsson. he toured in 2008 with Bon Iver and we’re look forward to catching him this time around with John Vanderslice. “I Won’t Be Found” is the lead track of his first full length Shallow Grave. melodymelodymelodymelody..
a song like “Ramblin’ Home” shows a glimmer of hope that Alberta Cross could be bound for great things… and word is that their first full-length is due sometime this month, so we’ll see.. their 2007 EP The Thief & The Heartbreaker was re-issued after selling out, and they have been on the road since. per Noel Gallagher’s personal request, they supported Oasis’ UK dates in ’08, performed at this year’s Coachella and Bonnaroo festivals, and are heading back across the pond for a string of live dates and festivals including Glastonbury and Hard Rock Calling with Neil Young… before they head back to the states for Lollapalooza and ACL. busy busy bees
wow, what a beautiful song. slow and honest alt-country that tugs at your heart strings. wait till that violin kicks in, as the song would wish, tears will come like the first time you lost something you loved. the saddest thing of all, The Everybodyfields have just broken up as of last week. they state on their myspace that they will be pursuing solo careers. perhaps Nothing (was) Okay? bummer either way, best of wishes to them..
go on, take the money and run
i’m about to go off on this shit like the whole party was catered.
props to about.com for the recipe!
Tabouleh is a salad like no other. Made with fresh veggies, olive oil and spices, it can be eaten in pita bread, scooped onto pita bread, or traditionally with a fork. In the Middle East, fresh grape leaves are used as a scoop. Tabouleh can be made with a variety of veggies according to taste. You can add carrots, cucumbers, red or green onions. I always suggest to taste as you go along in preparation. Yo can also add romaine lettuce for a fuller salad.

2 bunches of fresh parsley (1 1/2 cup chopped, with stems discarded)
2 tablespoons of fresh mint, chopped

1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup bulghur, medium grade
6 tablespoons lemon juice
