dick around


it seems that i've accomplished very little in the last few weeks. i've been sleeping my way thru work when i'm not on the internet and hardly leaving the house or getting chores done. thus when i heard the first track off the new Sparks album, it sounded like an appropriate theme. i was surprised that In the Red, a label that's been releasing a glut of raucous rock, released what is the twenty-some odd release from the la-based brother duo (Ron and Russell Mael). Hello Young Lovers find the group having endured for almost forty years and yet the remain surprsingly unknown to even some of the most avid of music fans. their sound, over the top glam pop, found a cult following overseas where Queen became one of their greatest immitators. i myself hadn't heard of the band until crossing paths with "the number one song in heaven" on the music blog circuit two years ago and subsequently worked it into a dj set last winter. anyway, let the band's wit provide the soundtrack to your own weekend of continued procrastination.
