Today's Quick Mention:  Do any of you use Napster?  My initial feeling about it was one of interest, but I've quickly waned and been unable to find anything great about the service, especially the "radio" portion that seems rather lazily slapped together.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong ... ?

The rest of the world is, as they probably should be, writing on and on about the two new Arcade Fire songs that leaked yesterday.  I, on the other hand, can't decide if either of the tunes are worth getting excited about, so instead today you're getting Mt. Saint Helens Vietnam Band.  Their new album is titled Where The Messengers Meet and it's due out August 3 on Dead Oceans.  Enjoy.

:Mt Saint Helens Vietnam Band - Leaving Trails:  This is honestly kind of a strange track, in that it doesn't really have what I'd consider a clear beginning and end.  It just sort of starts and then concludes with changing much at all.  Usually, I'm not a big fan of things that are structured in such an awkward fashion, but because this still manages to pack a rather intriguing edge, I think it's taken-out-of-context style works really well.  It'll be interesting to see what this is sandwiched in between on the LP.  I hope it's epic.
