It started with a simple set of words I heard on The Current, Minneapolis's Alt-eclectic music station.

Close to you, wishing we're conjoined at the tongue
Can you hear me thinking? I should stop.

As soon as I got home, I checked their website, found out "Desperate Guys" by The Faint fit the time-line of my drive, hit the iTunes music store and bought the album.

That weekend, I had a drive through central Minnesota for a photo shoot and took along my iPod with the new tracks on it. I was not disappointed by any song on it and listened to it two or three times on my drive to the-middle-of-nowhere and back.

The Faint have a new album out called "Faciinatiion" and they're on tour with Ladytron to support it. Tickets are on sale now for the show at First Avenue on April 2nd at 5:00. It's an 18+ show, so bring your ID. I'll be one of the guys with the camera and a big sparkly "Photo Pass" sticker on my shirt. Feel free to say "hi," I might even buy you a drink, especially if you don't have a black X on your hand.

Here are a couple videos to get you warmed up. I'll have a full review after the show.
