We'll file this in the hot beats drawer AKA that drawer where you put awesome shit in high school -- other items which exist in this drawer are one of Grandpa's war medals, a hustler magazine from 1994, a single fire cracker, and a mostly smoked J which you may or may not ever finish.

A personal favorite returns with a new album - Beta Love. After spending some time with this album I can say it leaves me wanting something. Their previous album "The Orchard" was one of my favorites from 2010 so obviously I hold them at a pretty high standard. Perhaps losing their incredibly sexy cellist Alexandra Lawn plays a pretty big part in this. After all.. their previous music was driven by symphonic strings which have all been replaced by synths in this current release.
With that said.. I'll leave you with a picture of Alexandra Lawn -because I can.

So there is a Dominican dude with Tourettes that hangs out on my block. He tends to yell DIABLO! at all hours of the night and punch things. He really has it out for the garbage can and phone booth on the corner of Broadway and Hooper Street. I'm no Doctor, but his Turrets seems to be exacerbated by alcohol consumption, and he drinks about twelve 24oz Crazy Stallion malt liquors a day... The Arizona big cans of malt liquor. This morning he was doing something rather worrisome. While sitting in pouring rain on a milk crate at the base of a street lamp, he had pulled the wires out from the electrical company access point at the base, and had spliced in a boom box. Using his bare hands, he was wrapping the wires around the prongs of the electrical cord, only taking breaks to yell DIABLO and chug his Crazy Stallion. I'm going to go check on him in a few hours to make sure he isn't sizzling in a pool of his own urine.
