First Impressions: Sep. 13th Albums

It's been a while since I wrote about...anything on here I guess. I'm not quite giving it up, but I'm also exploring new avenues to shove my opinion down people's throats. My friend Sara asked if I could contribute some stuff to her new blog, and my first post went up yesterday. Please check it out! I take a gander at new releases by Mason Jennings, St. Vincent, Blitzen Trapper, Wild Flag, Blind Pilot, Laura Marling, and Me First & the Gimme Gimmes!

Since that was already a long-ass post, here are some videos from a few of the albums...

St. Vincent's "Cruel":

St. Vincent - "Cruel"
Creepy! Awesome!

Blitzen Trapper's "Love The Way You Walk Away":

  Do I smell...America?

Wild Flag's "Romance"

A certain famous Merge label mate gets a bit of trouncing here. Watch closely!
