Come with me, come with me...
Sooooooo... I've done loads and loads and loads of Klaxons posts. I mean fucking loads. I am pretty fanatical about the band... which is something that's kind of weird to me when I really think about it. These are a few guys, close to my age (or are my age), who for all intents and purposes are doing the same things I'm trying to do with my life (write music for a living... albeit quite a bit more successfully)! I'm not trying to say I have anything close to their musical chops, what I'm saying is they are just dudes who write songs... as Scroobius Pip would say, they're "Just a band"... yet they still inspire a sense of wonder in me. To get so excited about a band seems goofy when you're closer to the source... having said that though, I'm still dorking out about them and will continue to in the future... hopefully I'll run into them again at Pitchfork this summer and be able to give them the "Atlantis To Interzone" remix that State Crime is working on...
I know some of you have expressed interest in a "best of" post... but instead of doing something that would make the record company kick my ass... I'm going to give you some new live tracks from Minnesota Public Radio...
We're I to do a best of, however, it would look like this.... if I'm missing anything let me know!

On another topic... as the last days of rainy shitty dark weather are dwindling down... I've been using these crap days as an opportunity to enjoy dubstep in it's best environment next to a) a dark alley or b) night time... I've been trying to get myself more well versed in dubstep... and while I was searching for music I got this gem from a friend at the radio station I work at... how fucking awesome is this!
Junior Boys- "Double Shadow (Kode 9 Remix)"

Although this isn't British, heads up to those of you in Chicago this week... you might want to check out Outdanced on Tuesday May 22... my boy Curt is DJing solo (as Dj Autobot, not as 1/2 of Flosstradamus) and Crystal Castles are playing a live show. Sam and I saw Crystal Castles in Miami a couple times and they were awesome (even though their sound system sucked... which wasn't their fault)... nice people... a good time will be had by all...
