it's Friday morning and I don't want to work on Milton

so here's some good music instead:

in honour of my excitement about seeing Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin next week (in the middle of finals week, mind you)
SSLYBY-I Think I Wanna Die [mp3]

Empty Rooms-We've Been Waiting For You [mp3]
they're a cool SF band I've recently discovered. I've had that song on repeat for a while. visit them on MYSPACE

and finally, because I'm super stoked about BFD (it's in a month!)
MGMT - Time to Pretend [mp3]

The Kooks -See The Sun [mp3]
their new record is really great. go buy it immediately.
