Aprarch 2011 Disc

There was not enough good music in just March of this year to justify its own disc; therefore, you get Aprarch 2011.  April + March = Aprarch.

1 - Paper Tongues - Trinity - I first heard this song in early 2010 but then forgot about it.  Luckily, I heard it again in March and it's good enough to bat lead off here.
2 - The Head and the Heart - Ghosts - We saw them last week at the Moore Theatre and this is by far their best song (in my opinion).  Everyone has their own favorite Head and the Heart song but this one is just musically and lyrically above the others.
3 - Snoop Dogg feat. T-Pain - Boom - Should definitely be a huge club song; anyone can dance to this.
4 - Crystal Castles feat. Robert Smith - I'm Not In Love - It figures the Crystal Castles would get around to paying their respects to the Cure.  Most of their songs do not have words in them so in the rare case one does, it might as well be Robert Smith doing the singing.
5 - DOM - Living in America - Pretty new and still growing on me
6 - A Silent Film - Driven by their Beating Hearts
7 - The Lonely Forest - Coyote - Finally picked up their disc after seeing last August.  This song might even be better than last year's stellar We Sing In Time.
8 - Grouplove - Colours - Thank you KEXP's John in the Morning Music That Matters Podcast.
9 - When Saints Go Machine - Fail Forever
10 - Portugal. The Man - People Say
11 - Wiz Khalifa - Roll Up - Definitely better than Black and Yellow
12 - The Raveonettes - Forget That You're So Young - Sounds like every other Raveonettes song, which is a good thing.
13 - The Vaccines - Post Break-up Sex
14 - Biffy Clyro - Many of Horror
15 - My Chemical Romance - Bulletproof Heart - Much better than the first single off of their latest album.
16 - The Pains of Being Pure of Heart - Belong
17 - The Sounds - Something to Die For
18 - Those Darlins - Be Your Bro
19 - Starfucker - Bury Us Alive - Best band name ever.
20 - Death Cab For Cutie - You Are A Tourist - First single off their new album.  Kate doesn't like it...why?


  1. #4 Crystal Castles. i can't think of 1 crystal castles song without lyrics. every track has lyrics. look at their site and then click on lyrics:

    #12 Raveonettes. agreed. i love everything they do.

    #19 Starfucker. disagree. cheesiest band name ever.

  2. The Raveonettes are coming to town next week on the 13th, but we're actually skipping the show. We're going to see Ghostland Observatory the next night and concerts on two consecutive nights is for my 20 year old self. 30 year old self likes to put at least one day between shows.
