Song of the Week: Rogue Wave

One of the more highly anticipated records of the year, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ It’s Blitz, gets released on Tuesday — earlier than the band wanted due to the fact most of the record leaked last month. I’ve never been a huge YYY fan, but what I’ve heard so far has been top-notch. Rogue Wave, however, that’s a different story. Their cover of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s first-album hit “Maps” is a treat. I still don’t know why Rogue Wave isn’t bigger than they are. Maybe some of the YYY’s success will rub off on them...

we have quite similar music tastes, and it looks like you're ahead of the game. i came across your page while searching for lyrics to Untitled Shook Ones by Sigur Ros and Mobb Deep, and turns out your list from 2007 has some of my favorite songs of all time. kudos.
