So crazy right now

Congrats to The White Stripes; I heard they won an award last night. Of course, I couldn't be bothered to watch the award show. If you need a recap, I highly suggest checking out Whatevs. So much buzz!

If you ignore Pitchfork's look back on Yes's entire catalogue, they have some decent stuff up: an interview with Out Hud and (finally) a review of Franz Ferdinand's superb single "Take Me Out."

I finally clicked with The Walkmen's Bows and Arrows this weekend. This album makes me realize that their debut was not quite cohesive; the songs on their new one really work together to make a fantastic listen through the whole thing. Highly recommended for these snowy days.

If you're bored tonight, definitely check out Metric playing with South at the Fine Line. Their album Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, besides having a killer title/opening line, is a fantastic listen that somehow manages to balance indie and new wave with really smart, semi-political lyrics. Dissappointingly, I probably won't make it to the show because of time and money (no guest list spots for radio station = not so good), but it will still be a good time.
