Royal Headache finally came on, just before 1:00 AM. I would consider their music more of a pop-punk than a true punk-rock, as most of their lyrics was inspired by women and not “the man”. …

Franz Ferdinand: Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action
Honestly, have not listened to this new album, but I heard some of those songs live when they toured here for that album. It sounds like typical dancey Franz Ferdinand. They know the formula, they know what we like.
02. The Blow by The Blow
Been a fan of the Blow for a long time, but finally got to see them for their new self-titled album. They only did new songs, possibly because their previous albums were in collaboration with YACHT and other people. This new incarnation of the Blow is Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne. The live performance is tailored to the music, so it was incredible to watch. Bought their 12" record at the show, so impressed.
03. True Romance by Charli XCX
Charli XCX has the hottest song of 2012: "I Love It", but you may not know it's her song. Instead Icona Pop is credited because they released it as a single - but the song was written by Charli. She sold out her two appearance in Chicago, we caught her second show.
04. Personal Record by Eleanor Friedberger
This new record was co-written by John Wesley Harding (now known as Wesley Stace) and the beautiful Eleanor Friedberger. We've seen her three times in Minneapolis just this 2013.
05. Deltron 3030: Event II by Deltron 3030
The supergroup of Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Dan the Automator, and Kid Koala, the trio brought a hip hop/urban music that is in some ways a much better version of Gorillaz.
Ylvis: What Does the Fox Say?
Brody chose Royal Headache's "Never Again" from their 2011 self-titled debut album. The Australian band stopped by Minneapolis last year in support of the album. You can read more about their show here at W♥M.
