Hungry Harlequins!

This week there are 16 adds, because a) there are a lot of good records, b) I am feeling particularly indecisive, and c) might as well splurge once in a while, right? Two are (AWESOME) late adds, and one is a single that will get pulled when the full-length comes out next month.

With SIXTEEN new discs to play, I look forward to seeing your playlists overflow with new musics because there is enough variety in hear for EVERYONE seriously :D

As far as weekend stories go, I saw Liars and No Age at the El Rey on Friday, where Kyle (or I) became the potential subject of a missed connection. On Saturday I ate some rice, and on Sunday I fixed my record player.

Because there are way too many, these blurbs will be the word-association types.
