Quick blog entry today...

Heads up!
Cleveland's bizarre electro-pop duo, Furnace St., have posted their (supposedly) final album 'Extroversion' as a web-only release. They claim it to be their "best record" and I am strongly inclined to agree. I've been listening to this thing since last night and it's, frankly, amazing. The fact that the band broke up prior to the album's release makes it's greatness a little bittersweet, but it's still definitely worth checking out. And hey, you cheap-o's, it's free, so go download it already. (They do ask that you download the album in it's entirety and since there's not a bad song here, there's no reason why you shouldn't.)

For those who haven't heard Furnace St., it's kind of difficult to explain their sound. Try mashing the best of 80's new wave with some indie rock, lots of electronic noises and a little bit of industrial, just for good measure. It's a whirlwind of styles that works perfectly.

And it's available here
