Some Kind of Awesome - SKOA - [Listen] Kasabian - 'Velociraptor!' (Full Album Stream)

"Some Kind of Awesome - SKOA - [Listen] Kasabian - 'Velociraptor!' (Full Album Stream): "
'The wait is over you eager Kasabian fans. Offered up here is the band's follow up the the excellent 2009 album, West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum.' "

   Just got this via Twitter from my friend (and music consultant) Kat-which is kind of awesome because I really was wondering what the fuck I was gonna do for the Monday post. I have spent the last week dealing with the fact that I can't seem to keep from falling off my bicycle and winding up in the ER-this after moving Scoundrel World Headquarters the previous couple of weeks, shifting bank accounts, DMV stuff etc...

   As I am writing this I am currently about 5 tracks deep, and so far each one has been really good, I foresee this going into the rotation. I love the ever expanding warehouse of influences flowing through Indie Rock these days. There was a point a few years ago where it seemed stilted-like everyone was competing to throw in some obscure reference just to look cool. That forced creativity seems to have given way to the understanding that making great art requires constantly seeking new influences and frames of reference. This is no exception, I can't wait to hear it on a good set of speakers
Cheers All!
Enjoy! C

PS, I just want to give a big shout out and thank you to the staff at the LA County/USC Medical Center ER for taking such good care of me today-especially to a very sharp radiologist who may have caught a problem before it even started.

'Acid Turkish Bath'-Needs to be the theme to a Bond film. Seriously.
