  1. I really like the Paramount and the Schnitzer, but I hope I never see WAS at a sit-down venue again. it just felt so wrong, even though I stood through their set. and just so’s ya guys know, those two venues are almost identical.

    oh, wow. that Au Revoir Simone cover is really weird. I think I prefer the original, but maybe it’ll grow on me. it kind of reminds me of She & Him.

  2. i really like the cover…it’s one of those songs i could probably keep listening to over and over…

    i hate the photo that comes up on my last.fm account for it though 😛

  3. I just saved Keith’s track as Keith A. Murray. I hate that I got that damn rapper in my stats now. :o/
    but keith is doing a nice job. i love when he sings the higher notes. he really should do that more often. I think he sounds a bit like the early marc bolan. *ahem* nice. 😀

  4. oh, that’s a good idea, Kerstin. I’ve just changed it to Keith A. Murray as well.

    I played it for my sister the other day, and she said it reminded her of Alex Kapranos. at first I didn’t get it at all, but now that I’ve listened to it quite a few more times I think I hear it.

  5. Yeah it does sound a bit like an acoustic Franz Ferdinand. I’m not familiar with the original (I find ARS a bit dull) but it’s a nice wee song.
