Friday Pick of the Week
   April 1, 2011 (4:35 PM) by Matt Benson
 

Nothing too crazy going on today and work was pretty busy for me with Opening Day in baseball, so I thought I would post my second ever “Pick of the Week”.  For those that missed this the first time, I am going to randomly post whatever I am digging at the moment on some of the slower days.

The first time I did this, I posted a Daytrotter Sessions of a band called Menomena.  This time, I am sticking with Daytrotter as I really like their site, but going with a band called Two Door Cinema Club.  They are a band from Northern Ireland and their album, Tourist History, has been in heavy rotation for me over the last year.  Check them out.

If you have your own recommendation of something you are a fan of at the moment (TV/movie/music?), let it be known in the comments.

I will be posting highlights throughout the weekend.  Happy Friday!

Friday Pick of the Week
   March 4, 2011 (5:09 PM) by Matt Benson
 

Friday can be a slow news day around here and the internet (of course as I started this post, I learn of the Eugene Starikov news), so I thought I would do a random post some Fridays with my [whatever] pick of the week.

I know I want to keep this site focused mainly on American soccer players playing abroad, but one post every week or every two weeks won’t harm anyone (plus, this is my site dammit!).  Sometimes it will be music, maybe it will be a movie suggestion, but it will be something that I am digging at the moment.

With that said, my pick of the week is Menomena’s Daytrotter sessions that came out last weekend.  Some of you might remember me posting a video a couple rainy Friday nights ago, but this is a band I learned about last summer and have been semi-obsessing about over the last six months or so.

Daytrotter is a great site where they get bands to stop by their studios in Rock Island, Illinois while they are touring and they record 3-4 songs, but make the band do them acoustically or change them up a little bit.  Then they put them up on their website for free.  Good stuff.

But like I said, for those of you that don’t care for these type of posts, I will only be doing these like once a week or once every two weeks on slow days.   Also, if you have your own recommendation of something you are a fan of at the moment, let it be known in the comments.

Happy Friday!
