They might be giants – Am I awake? – from EP Indestructible Object
Brooklyn’s They Might Be Giants have cut a crazy and unmatched swath through popular culture during their 20-year career, continuously producing vital and scarily intelligent pop music that’s also catchy and enjoyable art. They have been recognized as art-rock pioneers, college rock kings.

Screencasts Online – Don McAllister’s excellent suite of podcasts including the Euromac and Extra! editions. They really are worth subscribing to. Loads of useful information and Don shows you how to do the things you’ll be really glad you know about … if you get what I mean.
The National – Wasp Nest
The National are an anthematic rock band from Brooklyn via Ohio.
The band consists of two sets of brothers, and an old friend from back home. Their first album features many songs about life, water, growing up, women, and women’s clothing. It was recorded before they’d played a sin … (see what I mean about running out of characters?)
