Random Tuesday: Meet The Local Strangers (And Some Other Stuff, But Mostly The Local Strangers)

It's been a dreary, rainy, foggy, Cloud City like day here, except without any visits from cool people like Han Solo or Lando Calrissian. I'm really not in a blogging mood, but I did want to share with you guys that today is a special day.

Today is the release date for Take What You Can Carry, the newest album by The Local Strangers. It's a 2 disc album where one disc is with a full band and the other is a stripped down acoustic version of all the same songs. I've first met Matt years and years ago when he was in a different band, and I met Aubrey the last time the pair were in Austin. These guys are the real amazing deal and you really should listen to some of there songs.

Here's a video for their song "Gasoline".

And you can learn more about Take What You Can Carry over at their Bandcamp page here.

 

How's that for random? We don't dive too much into music around here, though it's long been a passion right along with books and food. Here's a few more random things to peruse.

io9 has a great recap of all the Easter Eggs in Agent Carter now that the season is over. Hopefully we'll be getting a season 2 next year.

It's pilot season and I'm obsessed. EW has a list of all the currrent pilots in development at the usual network stations. Could your next favorite television show be on this list?

And if your TBR pile can take it, here's a list of many science fiction and fantasy titles coming out in March. My bookshelves are trembling in fear.

 

Now to curl back up on the couch and be a lump of unproductivity while listening to The Local Strangers.
