MP3:

baltimore, now that's an odd place. and hailing from baltimore is the two-and-a-half-piece (they are still in need of a permanent drummer) Double Dagger. DD is the first band of the new "designcore" genre (no, i did not make that up. Double Dagger did). the majority of their songs are about design "issues," like CMYK, crappy fonts, and clients from hell ("You're Getting Paid To Make My Life Harder"). it's dancey, it's punky, it's got great song titles (my personal favorite "My Dad Has a Theory That the Internet is the Roman Coliseum of Our Time"), what more could you want?

• Double Dagger - Attack Of The Clones

• Double Dagger - I Was So Bored I Wanted To Hang Myself On The Dancefloor


buy music, especially independent.
