This past week and weekend were slow ones ’round the blog, but that’s because it was a party weekend. I am good and exhausted, but have the best girlfriend, friends and family that anyone could ask for. Dave and I were both going to tweet the occasion, but that didn’t end up happening. I can’t imagine that people would care anyway.
Anyway, for this week, the new Silversun Pickups album is the buzz. I’ve got my copy pre-ordered on iTunes, and you can get yourself an advance track from the album after the list. And, if you want to find more of this week’s releases, you can dive in here.
