It's just not fair. Basically every blog residing in the US has nothing else to talk about except SXSW and the amazing bands they've just seen or going to see in an instant. While I'm sitting in cold and rainy Germany and no bands to see right now, everybody else seems to have the time of their lives. Ok, that may be exaggerated, but still, it's frustrating. Enough of my currently miserable, concertless being.
New Young Knives album Super Abundance is decent, I'd go with typical, but good British Indie like The Cribs, The Others, The Rakes or The Futureheads. Dancy tunes for going out, especially Up All Night or Fit 4 U. Haven't listened to previous stuff from The Young Knives, so I can't assess the progress or if there even is one. But I'll definitely go get the older stuff,too. Super Abundance was released this week in the UK and US, but will be out in Germany next week. You can either purchase it via amazon or via the band's official homepage.

I'd actually wanted to post these yesterday, but then I got tired and lazy, so I delayed it on today. Anyway as for other indie releases, Tokyo Police Club's Elephant Shell is finally due next month to be released via Saddle Creek Records. I'd actually wanted to do a full review post with tracks from the upcoming LP, but then I don't want the web sheriffs hanging around my blog again, so I decided otherwise: You'll get the post in about three weeks with tracks, review etc etc and now we'll just listen to some other fantastic TPC songs.
