Nice Photograph (Obamarama)


"President Barack Hussein Obama."

I don't know who took this picture. It's solid.








More about the band called Women: This is an incredible clip.

i haven't been able to keep up with all of your music recommendations (i just purchased my second National album last week, and you'd recommended them ages ago), but this video had enough to it to make me pretty intrigued.

I love the aesthetic of the band (the lights overhead, the band crowded in tight, the beat, etc...), and the middle of the song really grabbed me too, but I wasn't sure about the beginning or end. but i'm suspicious of only liking songs that catch me on the first listen, so we'll see. . .

I can see how a live show would be really fun.

Jon,
it's funny you mentioning The National; for me Women have that same kind of re-playability. Although Women's music is a lot more... um, challenging(?) than The National's.

Forrest,
I'm REALLY jealous of your getting to see these guys live. Especially seeing them in their hometown.

And hey, congratulations again. I'm seriously overjoyed.
