Its good to be back

Back from a whirlwind trip to Vancouver to see my buddy Bob and bring Maddy to see Grandma and Grandpa.

Watched some hockey(go Nucks!), ate a mondo Tuna taco on Lonsdale and rolled into the Zone to a few interesting developments.

one.  New music from Tokyo Police Club.  They have a new single on the radio called “Wait Up (Boots of Danger).” and I found a song on their website from the upcoming record Champ (June 8th) that is a free download if you give your email address to them.

Stream: “Wait Up (Boots of Danger
Download: “Breakneck Speed

That said, a great film.

Watch: M.I.A. – “Born Free”

Interview with Tokyo Police Club is coming up and I’ll have a new mix on Mixcloud tonight or tomorrow.

Go with yourself.
