Houdini


Ummm.... yeah.... sorry about the lack of posts of recent. I have been *gulp* busy.


BUT! Good music abounds.


For instance, the new I'm From Barcelona album, Who Killed Harry Houdini?, came out this past Tuesday. It is a more intricate album than Let Me Introduce My Friends, and it's not quite as snappy. It is more even-tempered and more cleanly enunciates the melancholy presented in "Barcelona Loves You." It is a more delicate and cohesive album than their debut, which is not necessarily a good thing. I'm From Barcelona is a band that makes singles. It's hard for a full album not to get tiring. Also, part of the band's novelty is its overwhelming hugeness. Songs like "Gunhild," though beautiful, lack the sheer size of their previous album.


Still, get this album. It's I'm From Barcelona like you've never heard them.

Dear Chris's Friends,

You are lame for almost never commenting on Chris's blog posts before I do. Please rectify this.
