Weekend Spotlight: Ghostland Observatory
Rock Insider turned me onto this duo from Austin, Texas, last week. Ghostland Observatory consists of vocalist/guitarist Aaron Behrens and producer/beat-maker Thomas Turner. Musically they mix electronica, rock, and funk reminiscent of such artists as Daft Punk or Prince.

Enough of my ranting and raving for the week. I'm off to pick up my sister from the aiport. Also, I get to house and doggie-sit over at my Mom's house the next few days.
My roommate told me earlier today "Dude, you gotta' post this!" OK, here you go:
