I'm pretty sure that half of Margot and the Nuclear So & So's double-disc release is going to wind up in my Top Three or Five. These Take Away Shows the band did in San Francisco for La Blogotheque definitely help lock them in. Hearing the songs live and stripped down really highlights their craft.

I was sorry to have missed them when they came through Iowa City, but I heard the sound in the Old Brick was not the greatest. Here's hoping they'll come back for a session at the Mill or somewhere similarly intimate.
Oh, hell. Look what they can do with found sound. The energy is infectious.
