This is an mp3 blog attempting to document the gross amount of music I listen to. About once a day, I'll post something I like. If you're a copyright holder on anything I host, get in touch, and we'll settle things in a steel cage instead of a courtroom.

The Falcon

I hate the word supergroup, or just at least how often it pops up. I don't think I've ever read a single article on the New Pornographers that didn't use the phrase "Canadian supergroup." There sure are a bunch of lazy writers in the world.

Anyway, I guess you could call The Falcon a "Chicago pop-punk supergroup," but you certainly wouldn't be the first. Consisting of members of the Lawrence Arms, the Alkaline Trio, and Rise Against, The Falcon put out a mostly killer EP last year, God Don't Make No Trash - or - Up Your Ass With Broken Glass. It was a comparatively raw punk release, considering the people involved.

If their just-released new single "The La-Z-Boy 500" is any indication, their upcoming debut LP Unicornography is going to be a much more diverse, ambitious release. It's catchy as all hell, and Brendan's raspy voice is as charming as ever. What struck me as odd about this song is the lyrics. While the song is a vaguely sunny, uptempo double-tracked acoustic number, the lyrics read like something off a Slayer album.
