Tuesday Tip-Off: Frank Lloyd Wrong

Drain the Swan, the latest from Frank Lloyd Wrong finds the band further perfecting their brand of wry, dare we say smart-assed, indie rock and it’s an instantly enjoyable and re-playable ride. Comparisons to Pavement and Silver Jews are warranted, but not just because FLW works a similar sonic template. The songwriting here approaches the same smartly funny and surprisingly touching territory as Malkmus and Berman’s best work. Highly recommended for anyone who was a fan of the so called slacker rock movement of the 90’s.

The suborbital flight lasted 15 minutes and reached a height of 116 miles into the atmosphere, and was by all accounts – pretty damn sweet.  We pay tribute to this accomplishment with some equally sweet space themed videos!
