weekend curfew


Curfew Update 02/19/2009

Blast of newish stuff right here right now. As mentioned in the last post, both acoustic and full band versions of Parachute VA’s new track, “She Is Love” is now available on iTunes.  Thursday’s new album came out earlier this week. Their latest effort is entitled “Common Existence.” Meanwhile, earlier this month Two Tongues released their long awaited self-titled album. Two Tongues is band founded by Max Bemis of Say Anything and Chris Conley of Saves the Day. From start to finish, this is a great album and I especially have high praise for its first track, “Crawl.”

Michael Gergory has teamed up again with Barely Political, this time starring in a video with Obama Girl for his song “Obama Girl Stimulus Song.” Check out his YouTube channel here, and check out the video below:

Parchute VA Gets Skin-ny

Ladies and blog monsters, just in time for Valentines day, Mercury Records’ Parachute VA is featured in a television ad for NIVEA brand lotion. An acoustic version of “She Is Love” plays while a couple is canoodling on a couch. Check it out:

The track is currently streaming on the band’s Myspace page and will be available for purchase on Feb 10 on iTunes. According the band’s site, a full band version of the track will be available the following day Feb 11. In addition to Myspace, the video appeared online on YouTube and Facebook Monday(2/2)  and has already drawn blog coverage. No word yet on when the spot will air next, but I’d love to catch it live. What program audience does a caps-heavy brand like NIVEA aim toward? Am I going to have to watch an episode of Gossip Girl to see this ad?

Like I told a friend of mine the other day, I have been looking for this song my entire life. 1.4 million views at the time of this post.

I also randomly ran into a blog called Kissing Fish while I was searching for something. They had posted a response from a girl named Tessa along with the Mario Kart Love Song video. She has her own Vlog on her YouTube channel. She utilizes quirky humor and some crucial editing to make her video posts fast paced and utterly hilarious. After just watching one Vlog post she’s got me hooked. I’ll do my best to not watch all of her videos too quickly.
