No need to write for the 15 millionth time how in love I am with Walter Schreifels. Rival Schools are, after ten years, back on track (as in “reunited”) and will be on tour in Spring 2011, which I am obviously thrilled about. I’m a little partial to this video – after such a slick, lovely and humorous video for Walter’s single Society Suckers, I’m confused about those trashy effects used here and sort of wondering what kind of look they were going for (80′s MTV?) – but anyway, Rival Schools are Rival Schools and I’d forgive them (almost) anything. Besides, this song rocks. So, here’s the new single, in all of its NYC-post-hardcore glory.
My name has five letters in it, and comes up in some Bright Eyes songs. I am (apparently) an artist, with too much time on her hands. Well, enough to blog (almost) daily. I am 1/4 (the smallest one, actually) of Lazy Acre Records; I also write & photograph for a
localmagazine based in Englaaand and makeused to draw musically-inspired comics for a canadian mag (RIP Inscribed). As if that wasn't enough, I book bands for a local experimental music venue called Subterrarium: we rock pretty hard. Sometimes I can be quite cute. I used tostill have a crush on Marty McFly; I like baking, overusing semi-colons, the smell of the sea, and thunderstorms.
I tend to be quite the busy bee, but if you make VERY sexy music and want me to listen and enjoy and possibly even (!!) write about it, shoot me a mail, baby. music(at)alicetragedy(dot)org
