Hotlink this shit and I will eat your first born... I'm totally fucking serious! I don't have like any money, it's hard enough for me to even have time to do this much less the cash!
Buy music from The Rakes.
So... not unlike my giving up on Lily Allen before I heard her... I had also kind of given up on The Kooks before I heard them. I had seen a lot of people slagging them off in the NME (are you seeing at pattern lol?) and I was like "eh I have to much fucking music to listen to already". The Kooks primary hater was, none other than, Johnny Borrell from Razorlight who said they were "cunts from music school" or something like that. Now... I'm not a HUGE Razorlight fan but Borrell did used to be in The Libertines for like 5 seconds as a bass player and, in my mind, that means I have to at least pay attention to what he was saying. This all changed, however, when my friend Lolly (a good friend of a Mr. Billy Bilo himself) said she quite liked The Kooks, and Luke Kook was a friend of hers, and I should check it out. So, of course, I did... and that fucking album is so fucking dope. And that kids was how I learned how to be less judgemental of summer music lol.... but seriously. "Seaside" is a perfect album opener, and "She Moves In Her Own Way" is as good a indie-pop gem as I've ever heard. "Naive" "See The World" are also ones I would suggest but I can't afford to use that much storeage space lol! Go get the album from Amazon if you dig these... Just fucking wonderful. Listen and fall into a land of summer music bliss!

PLEASE DO NOT FUCKING HOTLINK! I CANNOT AFFORD IT (I'm using minimal ".mac" space) AND I WILL HAVE TO SHUT DOWN THE FUCKING SITE! I love music and I want to share it, but I can't keep it up if you're stealing my bandwidth!

Another one of the "Ladies Of Summer" who I've posted some stuff on a few times already(and a personal favourite of mine) is the wonderful Lady Sovereign. I fucking LOVE her! I think her "Vertically Challenged E.P." is one of the funniest, smartest, most kick ass things I've heard all year. The only downside to the Sov story in my opinion, since they released the tracklisting for her album, is that most of the EP tracks are just getting thrown onto the album... as Pitchfork mentioned all but TWO of the songs that are going to be on the album have been out for ages on the internet. There is a song that I'm hoping is a b-side (as I didn't see it on the tracklisting) called "Orange" about bitches wearing fake tanner, but at this point I haven't heard anything about it. Anyway... this song is going to be the first single off the album. Please feel free to comment on how you feel about it (CHARLES I ALREADY KNOW HOW YOU FEEL SO KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!)
Lady Sovereign- "Love Me Or Hate Me"

That's stupid though... sooooooooo I decided to go back and take a solid listen to her mixtape number 2 and to see if I had missed something the previous time.
Lo and behold... I did. The second mix tape is phenominal... it is the perfect mix of old school and new school, the perfect mix of pop and r'n'b, the perfect mix of pop and summertime! I suggest you go back and take a listen yourself. I also decided that I ought to post this little rarity that is floating around called "Cheryl Tweedy". The song of course is about the allegedly rascist, bathroom attendant slugging lovely from Girls Aloud. I think it's pretty obvious however who the reigning queen of pop is this summer.
UPDATE: OK, if you read the above post you now know that Apple is going to kick my ass for using too much bandwidth and if I don't watch my ass there will be no "In Search Of Arcadia"! I'm only going to able to keep this file up for another day or so and then I've gotta take it down. So get it while the gettings good and PLEASE DO NOT HOTLINK THIS OR ANY OF MY OTHER SHIT! I'm not some fucking rich kid with a never ending expense account. I'm a broke ass music junkie who just wants to share with people!
Lily Allen Second Mix Tape Lily Allen- "Cheryl Tweedy"
Sorry for not posting the Intonation Pics yet... the girlfriend and I are moving so I gotta go pull the pix and the scanner out of all the shit that we packed before I can put them up! But Pitchfork is coming up soon so I'll probably end up putting them both up at the same time lol... See you there!

Anyway other than my extremely tense back and horrible financial situation I'm quite happy right now! So I thought I would post something that at least sounded really happy lol! This is a kind of thrown together post so bare with me... the bonus track cetainly isn't happy so that breaks the continuity but oh well, it's a good song! I will get those pictures and the second half of my Intonation Wrap Up done soon... I was gone all weekend so I couldn't do it then... anyway enjoy the songs and check back with the site soon!
