Weekend Edition #10

It is a chilly Friday in the Bay Area, and I am staying warm in front of the computer, listening to Bagel Radio. I've now heard two songs from the new Pretenders record - and I have to say, I really like what I hear. I recently downloaded a whole of gang of music off Emusic, however there are a number of albums I need that the service does not have. Perhaps a trip to the record store could be in order soon, which have been somewhat difficult now that I lack proximity to one. Still, this weekend is wide open, and I love that. Perhaps a date with Hillary is in order to see Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. What do you say, babe?
This week, I was happy to see that the long awaited debut full length from The Little Ones has finally arrived. I have been following this LA band for some time now - I even interviewed them about a week before they signed with Astralwerks. The band has faced some hard times - namely being dropped from Astralwerks, but have soldiered on and I am really excited to hear this album.
MP3 - "Morning Tide" - The Little Ones
While we are talking about LA bands that I really like, let's talk about Darker My Love. Download an entire Darker My Love Troubador set from Web in Front.
Yet another great LA band - Dengue Fever - is on Twitter. Follow them here. While you're at it, follow New and Used Records.
Our pals Rademacher recently released a new EP and are playing every Monday this month at the Echo in Los Angeles. They are keeping a Residency Diary through it all and you can read the first entry at Web In Front.
I realize that was a very LA-centric version of the Weekend Edition. I will try and think of the Bay Area more next week.
