the whole thing has leaked... plus i've learned ampersand, that's a goodie.

overall, she's just not pop enough for me though.
nobody deserves posts on their myspace site asking if they stabbed basketballs.

We did. We've been bumping the Ben & Amanda thread for it, but a new one can work too.

Ampersand has long been a favorite of mine, and I'm glad to see it make it's way to a real album cut. Astronaut was more than fantastic live in January as the Dolls and I already love it. Guitar Hero is a bit strange, but pretty freaking Amanda. And Leeds United is another pretty good track. Those are the only ones I have heard, because those are the ones she's officially released, however, a new video hit spin.com and I forgot to go check it out. I do believe we counted Ben to be the drummer on Astronaut.


Every two weeks on Tuesday she's uploading a new song and a video.

Having just watched Runs in the Family--- do you think I can memorize it all by the 8th when I see Miss Palmer? Haha the voices at the end. :D

the whole album is fantastic.  i can't wait to purchase it.
i'm really glad Amanda was convinced to put more into this album than just a basement, quick release. 
i mean, the orchestration is practically orgasmic.
and i'm so high not even you and all your love could bring me down

I'm sure Ben is good at peer pressure.

the new video is up and it's....awesome. "runs in the family". it was so late at night we filmed this shit that i was going for broke, because I knew we would only do a few takes and probably only use the footage for filler, or at least only one segment of a larger theme. but no: we ended up just using the amanda-freaks-out-in-the-attic-in-the-middle-of-the-night footage and goshdarnit i think it works pretty well. the songs sounds incredible. that's all ben folds you're hearing, this song was his baby. he played all the percussion and synth parts and arranged all the strings. genius.

Yes, it really is very Ben. Sounds similar to some parts of the WTN leak. It's almost like they could be sister albums. A double header tour would be ace.

Amanda covered a Neil Gaiman composition at a gig last night in L.A.
"I Google you": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucYeNjRlL9I
...and according to this setlist (http://www.audiotaco.com/?p=103), she also covered Cologne!

That means, she's played it out at a gig before Ben has.

That's really random.


I see her on Friday. ! Excited!
