Was I The Wave?, the new album from Miracle Fortress, dropped this Tuesday. Their previous effort has remained one of my more listened-to records of 2007, which I wrote about on linesthroughlines here. This one is less spaced-out Beach Boys and more Talking Heads with shades of Hot Chip-ish rhythms. While no track quite stands out like Five Roses' “Next Train”, Wave flows better, splashing up against my aural shores with ruthless beauty and precision.

Track: “Everything Works” from Was I The Wave? [mp3]

[buy it!]

Mesita - Somewhere Else - [Impending journey. Windows cracked. Ocean surf. Asher laughing. Love.]

Brazos - Mrs. Virginia - [the bassline is an ambling heatwave, the song a tale of bated breaths and sweat.] Live @ the Birch April 10th

The Awl tackles Domino's New Pizza

If this “article”/conversation doesn’t do it for you, I don’t know what will. The pizza is really good, the 2 for $5.99 each is a steal, and the online experience is unparalleled.

Engaging visual narrative…
