As for new music, there is plenty of great stuff I need to get out your way!

Birdmonster: While last year was all about their debut album, 2007 seems to be the year that Birdmonster conquer every city in the country with their van. Luckily they've had some spare time on the road to pen some new tunes, one of which they played recently on St. Paul's KCMP.

Arctic Monkeys: They were last year's next big thing, but when their debut album dropped, instead of being the greatest album of the decade, it turned out to be a solid record with some killer tunes, and there's nothing wrong with that. They are back already with Favourite Worst Nightmare on April 24th, a promising album that I am still familiarizing myself with.

The Pigeon Detectives: I've been addicted to their singles for the better part of the last year, so I can't be more excited for their debut album Wait For Me, which will be out later this year in the UK. Much like The Strokes if they were from England and were more concerned with having fun than looking good, this Leeds group is poised to make a lot of noise this year.
