I’m subletting a friend’s apartment for a while and he has incredibly good speakers.
OH MY GOD.
It’s like I’ve never heard music before. Suddenly production seems like the most important thing ever, because if a record sounds “bad”, I notice it so much. It never mattered before on my shitty $60 speakers from Best Buy, or even my decent set of headphones.
The best surprise is that The Soft Bulletin by Flaming Lips sounds AMAZING. It is leagues above any other indie music from the 90’s.
American Football have had a countdown on their website for the last two weeks and it’s done in two hours. If it’s reunion shows, get ready to buy tickets with me for NYC.
Today is the last day of the Master Egg tour.
It’s been rad. I’m pumped to record the second Oculesics album after playing the songs live so many times.
Tonight is an early show at Roggies in Brighton MA, off of the green line on the MBTA. Pet Jail plays at 8pm, Oculesics 8:45pm, Autocatalytica 9:30pm. $5 at the door.
They say touring isn’t easy. This first tour decided to make that damn clear when my car got towed on the morning of our second show.
Lesson learned: look up every state’s traffic laws when you are coming through on tour. I had no idea NYC required 15 feet of space around fire hydrants. Expensive mistake.
Everything was ok, one zip car ride to Montclair and two days of getting my car back later.
Tour continues tonight at Cherry Street Station in Wallingford CT. doors at 8pm. Let’s rage!
