Gem sweater worshipin' rapper is coming to Atlanta...

One of these days I'll post something before it hits the blogosphere, but until then I'll have to give credit where credit's due. Cable and Tweed posted about the second coming of Christ, err I mean the coming of Leslie and the LYs to the ATL! I saw the video on YouTube, and yes it was forwarded to me with words "awesome!!" & "LOL". If you're not sure who I'm talking about, she's a white female rapper/comedian who raps about her love of gem sweaters and all things bedazzled..oh, and killing zombies. She'll be playing The Drunken Unicorn (4/21) and Eyedrum (4/22), I suggest you go.

Here's the video for "Gem Sweater":

NEW MUSIC: Magic Arm "Outdoor Games"

A friend of mine turned me onto this band over the weekend: "Have you heard of Magic Arm?" "No." "I guess I better check 'em out". So I headed over to their MySpace page, and listened. Pretty nice stuff. And I do mean pretty. Dreamy folk with hush-then-soaring vocals, acoustic finger-pickin', and a keyboard melody that starts to drift in at just the right moment. I was hooked, so I did a little Sherlock Google action and found that they have no label, no website...but apparently Ed Droste from Grizzly Bear loves them. On his band's blog, he asks you to download the track "Outdoor Games" & dares you to tell him this song sucks. I think this song is great, but maybe you have no taste in music and would like to tell Ed so. Accept the challenge, download it & reply to him HERE. Hopefully these guys hook up with a label soon, I wanna hear more.
UPDATE: According to their MySpace they are recording an album and releasing a single (I guess this song is it) in early 2007. Sorry that's ambiguous. It's all I got.
