Remember when I told you to listen to this band, The Naked and Famous? Well, I'm giving you a second shot with this awesome KCRW performance. They sound great live and I'm predicting great things for this New Zealand band. Awesome-ness.
I'm still very fond of B.o.B's debut record "The Adventures of Bobby Ray" released earlier this year. One of my favorite tracks is this one. Many have used this gravity-defying camera technique (me included) but B.o.B does a decent job here. So watch, but at the very least, listen.
There are 60,000 words in the English language. We only use 7,000 words 90% of the time. That's why each year, hundreds of words are dropped out of the English language. Oxford Dictionary would like us to save the words!

This is a long but interesting discussion for any movie buffs out there. Annette Bening, Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman, Helena Bonham Carter, Amy Adams, and Hilary Swank have a round table discussion about being an actress.
They're from Brooklyn and went to Wesleyan with Andrew and Ben of MGMT (and even toured with them) but their sound is not quite the same as MGMT. They're more of a funk-punk indie band with less electronic influence than MGMT. Think Modest Mouse + Vampire Weekend. I like them and you will too. Enjoy!
