Love Love LOVE ARCADE!!!

I am undoubtedly obsessed with this new CD I bought a month ago from a 5-piece band called Love Arcade. I'm telling you, they're something to get into. They're fun, their lyrics are great, and it's totally dance-able. Their sound is pop with a bit of hipster flair, and the lyrics are bittersweet leaving you wanting more. Each track almost sounds like a movie, and I can so easily place myself in each one.
Originally the band began with frontman, Snowhite (yes, that's the name he goes by...I wonder if he knows the dwarfs. Ok, bad joke, I know), where he was the singer, guitarist, bass player, keyboardist, drummer, producer, engineer, mixer, videographer and graphic designer for and since then, has added 4 other guys to the lineup.
Some of my favorite tracks include Party, Open Up, Sweething, & Passenger. Has anyone else indulged in this CD yet? I'm dying to hear what people think. Check out their website complete with flying arcade games and quirky sound effects at http://www.lovearcade.net/ or befriend them on myspace at www.myspace.com/lovearcade.

They just started out on tour with Paramore, The Almost, and This Providence (obviously an amazing tour), so you should go check them out...I know I will.

Pop music is my guilty pleasure

So there's this new artist out there that's starting to get a bit of a buzz...though not being received so well on PerezHilton.com, I think she's quite adorable. Her vocals reminds me a lot of someone who I used to listen to when I was in high school, and I think she's got a little something different to offer the pop genre. Whether or not you agree with me, check her out for yourself at www.katyperry.com and let's discuss...I'm interested to know what other people think.

And oh yea, you might have seen her around...she's the leading lady in the latest Gym Class Heroes video, "Cupid's Chokehold."
