Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Pretty Girls Make Graves - All Medicated Geniuses

And you seem to sleep so much more soundly
To the song of other people's failures

Today's band is also from Washington (see:
Death Cab). Named after either a Smith's song or a line from Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums, Pretty Girls Make Graves formed in Seattle in 2002. I've only actually heard their 2nd LP--New Romance. Even though I loved it I never had the opportunity, or really bothered, to hear the rest of their stuff. It's one of my biggest struggles in life really: finding time to hear every artist I'm interested in and then every album by every artist I like. I have a tough life.

I picked "
All Medicated Geniuses" for its raw energy, which is pretty characteristic of PGMG. It's easy to compare them to Yeah Yeah Yeahs for the simple fact that both have a female lead singer. Honestly, I sometimes mix the two up. But anyway, they've got the whole new wave/post-punk thing going and they're good. 'Nuff said.

Well, I would like to add that the band ended their career after drummer Nick DeWitt decided to leave. They just couldn't go on without him. [tear]
