Nina's Website is now up & running

She has a blog, a tweeter account, a facebook account, a myspace account, an Etsy store, a good ol' mailbox (I assume), but there obviously was something missing : a real website!
You can now visit and learn a lot more about Nina's projects.
And as if that wasn't cool enough, you'll also learn that when of Montreal starts touring in support of False Priest, you won't be going to a show, you won't be going to two shows (Janelle + oM), but you'll be going to two shows + "The False Priest touring exhibition." Lucky you, America!
There are also a few works of art that I'd never seen before, and I can't help but wonder if some of them are False Priest-related. I wish they would at least leak the artwork. Or the tracklist. Just a little something... The Booty Patrol is getting fidgety.

New song performed last night.

Once again the sound quality doesn't really do the band justice (or at least I hope so, if they sound like this they have a huge problem), but you can tell this new song - tentatively titled "Famine Affair" - has quite a classic late 70s rock feel to it, with some really nice guitar work from BP.
Thanks to André at the Townhall for his youtubing skills, and whoever taped it in the first place.

I'm reposting the two interviews I twittered about yesterday : a really short one with Kevin via Tulsa World, and one in which Bryan discusses False Priest and band politics (for lack of a better phrase) at Please ignore the journalist's comments - he obviously hadn't done his homework prior to writing the article.
On Read The Hook, Kevin gives us a few clues as to what False Priest is going to sound like : a less fragmented record you'll want to listen to on a high-end hi-fi system as opposed to your crappy laptop speakers.
Also, Spin was in New Orleans to review the band's first show : less theatrical elements, more good old rock'n'roll. Good call on likening the new oM sound to Suede, it all wasn't just happening in my head, then.

Upcoming Tour, New Drummer

In an interview with Quickdfw, Bryan revealed that the lineup had changed since their last tour. Their last show at Columbia University had been quite conspicuously drumless and Jameyless, and now it turns out that Clayton Rychlik has taken over drumming duties. To be perfectly honest I had never heard of him, and a quick google search revealed that he's a member of Tallahassee's experimental jazz band the Arch Trio, and that he also used to be in a band called Langtry.
Beeps gave a couple of other interviews, with the Columbia Tribune and Vox Magazine, talking about the upcoming tour, False Priest, and his Wings cover band.

Also, and in case you've missed Kevin's gazillion tweets about it, Janelle Monae's The ArchAndroid came out earlier this week, and it features a collaboration with oM called Make The Bus, which (in my opinion) sounds just like a simplified version of something that could have ended up on Skeletal Lamping. Anyway, it's got a chorus that is sure to invade each of your neuron. The album is getting great reviews from basically every paper/magazine/blog (scoring an amazing 93 points on metacritic) and for once The Booty Patrol agrees with critics, but if you're still not convinced it's worth buying, you can stream the whole album on Janelle's myspace.

Rock'n'Roll couple of the year

Everybody at the Booty Patrol (on the Booty Patrol? with the Booty Patrol?) agrees on one thing : Nick & Dottie are "epic cute" (Tim), and "super-mega cuteness" (Kimberly), and everybody fondly reminisces about the winks and the smiles, a few lucky ones witnessed the proposal at the Hollywood Bowl last year (Chloe and Rob), and we even have a die-hard Pecan Sandies fan (that would be Elias), but when it came to celebrating the union in true Booty Patrol style, well, we all kind of stalled. And when you stall, what do you do? You put together a slideshow! Well, I can't vouch for you, but I sure can make a silly slideshow. So here you go, enjoy the ballad of Nick & Dottie in 2 minutes and 18 seconds.

Win tickets to the Lexington, Ky show and a shopping adventure!

Not only is the wonderful Matt Jordan the Man Who Archives Every Cover Ever Played By oM (and The Man Who Single-handedly Brought oM Back To Lexington), but he also came up with a rather fantastic idea for a competition : comment on his blog for a chance to win two, no FOUR tickets to the show and a $50 voucher to shop for CDs before the show. With a little guidance from BP and whoever else can wake up early enough and feels like it on that one day. How wonderful is that? It does make up for the fact that nothing ever happens in the Bluegrass State, right?
