March 22, 2011 = Epic Day For Music

At least for me anyways :p

Today is an exciting day for me!  I have just purchased the new albums from The Strokes and Green Day that were released today.  I have listened to both of them and I already love both of them.  The Strokes remind me of Duran Duran, in a good and weird way, with this very 80s vibe album.  Green Day’s new live album is very solid, a much better live album than Bullet In A Bible. However I would rather have a new album, preferably not a rock opera too.

Also today I got two albums from Soundgarden, a band I’ve always wanted to check out but never came around to.  I got Superunknown and Down On The Upside, and I’m looking forward to listening to both these albums.

I have a lot to process, so wish me luck!

Extra! Extra!: Hear the Strokes’ new single!

March 22 cannot come any sooner!

I apologize for posting about The Strokes back to back, but the band’s new single “Under Cover Of Darkness” was released today and I couldn’t resist!

The song is awesome, sounding like something from Room On Fire instead of First Impressions Of Earth (which is mostly a good thing).  You can listen to the song below, and if you like it click here to download the song via Consequence of Sound.

The Stroke’s new album Angles will be released on March 22.
