Okay, I'm officially the biggest liar ever, but I'm also the biggest procrastinator ever. Five days to go, sixty pages to go... rockin' time.

Anyway, I had to do this because someone posted this on VLV, and Alex and I were already obsessed. Witches are a totally awesome indie rock band from Athens, Georgia.

They have a 7" out now on Salinas Records (run by a very nice gentleman- check it out!) and Mandible Records. This CD-R supposedly came with some copies of the 7" (haven't gotten mine in the mail yet), and I think it may have been recorded live... it doesn't sound quite as clean as the songs on their myspace (which I listen to over & over & over again). Anyway, buy their 7", listen to their stuff... hopefully they'll tour again soon. They came up here a month ago or so, but it was a Friday night, and I think Christa had Get Laid in on her show or something. I'm not sure who did the Boston show, but it didn't seem very well publicized or anything.

Anyway, they also have a Pink Couch Session (though Cheeky's is still my favorite... "Yo I must spit all over my face") and a live video up on If You Make It. This is a live set from Bloomington last spring...

Cara Beth also does solo stuff and used to be in Con Amore before heading down to Georgia.

Get their 7" from Salinas


Other than that, get psyched for:


And one more thing... Though they've called it quits, Brian Miller put the sixth and final Rose for Bohdan album (There it is, The Creeping Moral Decay of the Past Thousand Years) here. Check it out! And check out their other bands like Foot Village & Laco$te.

PS- first post of '09!
