Here's to the best band Minneapolis has ever known. If I'm not mistaken, Mr. Stephen Schmiel was a clapper on this album. Correct?

I sometimes forget how good this album is. Didn't care for their latest though. This particular song I like a lot, and it reminds me of Captain Beefheart's "Hot Dog Tropical Night" song with the crying trumpets.
And for reference... I won't be made if you don't listen to the whole thing, lol. But at least listen long enough to hear the crying trumpets!

Do you remember that time at an MLC talent show when a kid had a long introduction about his song and then it was just a guitar solo - no words, nothing? This song was like that for me, except I loved this one. Maybe today I was just in the right mood. Everything about it was beautiful.
Remixed by our dear friend, Mr. Kieren Hebden.

Punch Brothers cover The Cars
The Onion has an arts and entertainment section called "The AV Club." They do a series each year where they ask bands to come in and cover a song in their offices. Sometimes they're really bad. I thought this one was pretty good.

Pretty poor concert to be honest. The opening bands were a special kind of terrible. The YL kid himself got food poisoning from a hotdog in Chicago the night before (lol), and only played 5 songs. For $10 though it was worth it to say I saw him. At least he played an extended version of this song:
