So I didn't post a review of The Eraser today because me and deadlines are not always a good pairing, more than likely that will come Thursday. You can read a really good review of the album courtesy of the always enjoyable Austinist.com. I did manage to hear a really good album today and that is why I was distracted. "Amputechture" by the Mars Volta is an amazing album that has surpassed all of my expectations. Even if you were not a fan of "Frances The Mute" this album takes it back to the Deloused days, a great album. I haven't decided what my favorite track is yet. The release date is Aug 22nd but I am very impatient.

I found out through the amazing Emma and confirmed through the Austin City Limits official website that 3 day passes are now officially SOLD OUT. Now I guess it's buying single day passes for the rest of you.

Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd passed away, R.I.P.

Justin Timberlake's new song is the shit, good guilty pleasure music. Hear it now [link]
