First cook out of the season today. A little pong, a little draft day manifesto-ing, a little jersey/tank-top weather. I spent about an hour poolside in AZ making a mix just for such an occasion and I am fit’n to bust it out today. Sixers victory last night was the best basketball game I have ever witnessed in real life. The playoff atmosphere is an entirely different animal and I feel very fortunate to have been able to attend with the best of buds.

I need everyone to know right now that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs new album is front to back 5 mics, 5 stars, 5 ice cream cones, whatever system you want to use to rate it. It kicks off with the dancy opener, Zero, and hits on all cylinders from the get-go. Every track has an ominous feel yet looming danceability, even if it is dancing in the bedsheets to Skeleton or Little Shadow. Go get this now. Please.
