Woo woo woo woo

Dating Cops - The Intelligence

Lars Finberg is seized with an anxious, itchy aggrievement that knows no precise object, a vague and omnivorous can't get no satisfaction. So his voice careens around the room like a squash ball, hard and unpredictable.
Going out, going out with, going out with you, he stammers over the dirty chug of guitars and drums, scrambling for the most withering insult in his arsenal. Going out with you is like going out with a cop, almost comes as a lame surrender, though it's still plenty hostile. You can see the girl sitting across from him respond with an I'm outta here roll of the eyes, a cool sip of beer, a gesture for the bill. Some guys sitting at the table behind them laugh and make police signal sounds--woo woo woo woo woo woo. That's when Lars realizes his mistake. He turns the line on himself: No, going out with me, ME, is like going out with a cop! But she's already gone.

The Intelligence's new album, Deuteronomy (Amazon, eMusic) is pretty great.

This is not fair, because if we all go nuts for this record at the same time people will suspect the long arm of the OMG PR people.

When it's just a really nifty rock record (and I'm in love with the track before this one).

LOLZ that anyone's paying attention to what I'm posting. But in future, I'll try not to write about songs I actually like so as not to potentially jeopardize my reputation as an um, independent, uh, blogger.

Also, J: Neva-eva again will I offer you soup (ungrateful boy).
