The Eames Era Is Over


I was doing some reading over at Noel Murray's Popless column on the AV Club today and read a little blurb he did on The Eames Era song "All of Seventeen" off their EP, The Second Eames Era (Murray goes on to make some nice insights about how so much good indie references these "off-canon" bands, which I think is a great term for it).

It's not even one of my favorite songs of theirs -- I thought Heroes and Sheroes was chock full of very good ones -- but it did remind me that I wanted to post some unfortunate developments. I'm a big fan, and for the past month I'd been trying to track down the band for an interview or something for this here blog. I finally got a reply from Grant Widmer bearing the (relatively) sad news:
That's right, The Eames Era are no more. Ashlin and Greg moved to Chicago in the
past few months and they are on to other things. Ted, Brian and I have also
moved to New Orleans and we are hard at work on a new album. As I said before,
Brian got married this week and his life has been very busy so it's still
unclear what kind of role he'll have in the new group. But Ted and I have been
traveling to record with Daniel Black, the producer of our last album, in D.C.
since January. We are about 1/3 finished and hope to be all done in May. Then it
will be time to tour for a while. So I'll keep you posted. We'll definitely be
spending time in D.C. so I'm sure we'll cross paths sometime.

It's a sad moment when one of your pet bands dies. Rob went through this with Field Music, G.L. and I both bore witness and tears at the demise of The Bigger Lovers. It makes sense, though. It's a competitive musical climate these days, no matter how catchy your delicate, Saturday-Looks-Good-To-Me-influenced indie pop records are. I applaud the bands that tough it out and stay together, but I empathize with those who don't. The bright side, however, is that often these things turn out for the better: Rob's big into School of Language these days, and the breakup of The Bigger Lovers just led me to check out their other projects, namely Mazarin and the Pernice Bros -- both Rockist staples.

So here's to you, The Eames Era, may we hear from your respective members' new projects soon.
The Eames Era - "Both Hands Full"
The Eames Era - "Last to Know"
The Eames Era - "Go to Sleep"

That is a shame. The Eames Era were really good, one of the bands I would love to have seem had them come anywhere near me. Oh well. I hope they find success and happiness.

Eames Era was one of the bands I wanted to see make it. They were fresh and independent and they made two solid records. Everyone should get them while they can.

Check out Eames singer Ashlin Phillips' latest project. She has sung a duet with Harlan guitarist Britt King (aka Polly Math) on the new EP "Kid vs Camera"...It's out now via American Thrift on iTunes and at myspace.com/americanthriftmedia. It's hot!

I found the video. You can hear Ashlin in the first song clip here:

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Greeting for the day!!

I am new to this spot. Loads of people have added so many good things here. I would also like to add up some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you wish to know how to lose 10 pounds in a calendar week, you are likely not searching for a basic diet and work out plan. You can lose weight with a basic diet and exercise plan, Still this takes a lot of time doing utmost cardio drills and sticking to a strict diet. Here I will draft the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a workweek.

1. Stay away from all fried foods for the week
2. Drink In an 8oz glass of grapefruit with breakfast every day. (this accelerates up your metabolism)
3. Take fair portions (stop consuming when you are full)
4. Instead of eating 3 large a meals a day, take 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod eating after 9 P.M.. Calories do not burn, when you eat so late.
6. Get plenty of sleep every night. Not getting adequate sleep has been proved to be a leading element to the body storing excess fat.
7. Apply a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of excess fat stored just about the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those man's/womans who need to burn fat quickly, avoid alcohol.
10[url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips].[/url] A low GI diet is an outstanding method of loosing fat quickly.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
