I Know What They Want, And I Know They Don't Want Me to Stay

Wow. After that uhmmmm, music, I think we truly need a palette cleanser. My friends, behold the glory of the Manchester Orchestra. Hey, Jesse Lacey likes them, and Jesse Lacey does not like anybody -- except for Kevin Devine. And Manchester Orchestra is no Kevin Devine.

In the parlance of the kiddies, the Orchestra's second full album "drops" today. It's kind of a mixture of Brand New and Lynyrd Skynyrd, which makes sense because as the name clearly indicates the band is from Atlanta.

And before you hit the play button, please keep in mind that this post is dedicated to my one true love. No, not Star Trek. My hot wife who wanted to post this song. However, since I introduced her to it, and since she waited so long without posting it, I could no longer keep this ditty under wraps. So without further a due, enjoy a song about love, suicide, reconciliation, and a fat, sweaty guy in a bear suit.

Manchester Orchestra - "I've Got Friends"

(P.S. If you don't know who Jesse Lacey is, you really need to do some research. . .)

Wow. I'm moved, AND I heart Jesse Lacey. I think he's a sad man, but come on -he's no House M.D. This is making me want to post all my favorite Brand New songs. Uuuuggghh! I heart Brand New (Lead Singer -Jesse Lacey. AND P.S. -He's SMOKIN hot. FYI)

Thanks for stealing my post cdahle. But you made up for it by saying I was hot. You're off the hook. Officially.
