My First Earthquake: New Album and Video

You only wish you were as cool as My First Earthquake. The San Francisco indie-rock band, generally known for being awesome, just released their music video for "Cool in the Cool Way."

Their songs are delightfully quirky, and worth a listen for their hilarious lyrics, groovy beats, and fantastic vocals and delivery. Their first full-length album, Downstairs, is out now.

State Shirt

I was looking for an article on my newspaper's web site this morning, and I stumbled upon an interview with musician State Shirt. I had no idea he was from Western Mass! In the interview, he talks about his most recent album, This is Old, and his philosophy on distribution.

Only question is, do his binoculars work at night?
