ICTH on temporary hiatus :(

So things haven't quite settled yet with my currently upside-down life, so this means I'll be taking a temporary break from this here blog to take of things. I'm extremely bummed about this, but some things take precedence over others. Please check back after next week, and hopefully all will be back to normal. Thanks for your patience.

ICTH is not dead.

My life is upside down at the moment, and the lack of posts lately is directly related to that. If all goes well, things will pick back up on Monday. Life can be so "arghhhhh" sometimes.

VIDEO: Dead Confederate "The Rat" (live at GSU's DAEL)

Thanks to Cable and Tweed for this! I absolutely love this band. I'm actually surprised I haven't posted on them before. Their self-titled EP is in quite a heavy rotation around these parts. They're kind of like a southern rock-flavored Mogwai. DC are currently working on their new full-length which should be out soon.

This week is just kickin' my free-time's ass, so that means slim posts this week. None the less, I just had to post about this band, The Mae Shi. Their new album "HLLLYH" is making the enormous-work-load-ass-beating somewhat tolerable. It's spazzy and fun and totally different and totally worth your attention. I wish I had more time to do this album justice, but apparently it's ass-kickin' time. Stupid work.

NEW SONG: The Twilight Sad - "Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did"

The Twilight Sad (my #27 of 2007) has put up a new song on their Myspace called "Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did", Angry Ape reports that it'll be the title track of a forthcoming mini-album featuring re-workings of songs from the debut as well as a Daniel Johnston cover. This first track sounds great, and I'm eagerly anticipating hearing the rest (especially that Daniel Johnston cover!). "Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did" comes out June 9th via Fat Cat Records on 12" vinyl and digital MP3.

"Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did" - Tracklisting:
1) And She Would Darken The Memory
2) Cold Days From The Birdhouse
3) Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did.
4) Mapped By What Surrounded Them
5) Walking For Two Hours
6) Some Things Last A Long Time

TOTALLY FREE MUSIC: Russian Spy Camera

Athens, GA's Russian Spy Camera are giving away their latest album, "Mutiny in the Kitchen with Knives", for free via their website. Does that mean it sucks? Hell no. They're just really nice, and would rather it make it's way into the hands of fans rather than never see the light of day just because all of their band fund was taken & spent on a plane ticket to Turkey. I highly suggest you head over and download it, and if free albums aren't your thing then there's a Paypal link on their site as well where you can send them some money for it. See? They're nice, so you could be nice back. It's all copasetic.
