1) In honor of the Olympics, Manhattan Murder Mystery's new video for "Owen Hart" (directed by John Seasons) prominently features the theme of a sport NOT included this year in London: Mexican wrestling.
3) Tilbury is among the latest, most recently buzzed about bands in Iceland today, a supergroup, in fact, composed of members of Icelandic superstar bands Valdimar, Brother Grass, Hjaltalín, and Sin Fang. First, enjoy this live performance of "Riot", in my opinion the best song of their new (excellent) album Exorcise, at the KEXPort Block Party at the Kex Hostel in Reykjavik (an increasingly popular music venue). It was held on July 14, 2012.
