now when i saw the 1st video for there Debut album "We Can Create" called "You Won't Know Her Name" i knew this would like this band from Northampton there sound is some describe by James Chapman as a bit like The Stone Roses meets Spaceman 3, they sounded like Devo, they did not played many dates here in american, but there debut album mean that shoegazing is back, Just perfic for the return of "My Bloody Valentine" in 2008.

Once - Soundtrack

Now i know i don't like movie soundtrack because there mostly recycle songs i heard before and a lot of songs that hear in a karyey bar so that mean sound track are banned of the full festive 50 unless it was something speical guess what we got our praeys.

it from one of the best film of the year, a musicial love story [and no i don't mean the overhype suage coated high school musicial] about two struggling musicians played by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová who fall in love and make music in working class Dublin, the sound track was a really gem of a sound track released this year.

oh if you want to know the DVD is out now for the film that gross over $14 million as of December and it was done over a Budget $160,000 U.S. now that was amazing.

Newman along with Neco Case, Kathryn Calder [Immaculate Machine] and John Collins of The Evaporators [Frontman is Nardward] released very great CD this year not a storng as there past album, but it is there trademark catch hooks and lyrcs, and there are still good live aldought they did not play a detroit show because they did not want to stuck in two hours traffic or worst the bus breaking down on 1-75.
