Incubus- Black Heart Intertia

I just came across the new Incubus single. Incubus is releasing a greatest hits and compilation album called Monuments and Melodies. It will be a 2-disc set, the first of which is mostly comprised of their hits and the second of which includes b-sides and cut tracks from albums. Look for the album to drop June 16, 2009.

Throwback Song: SR-71- Right Now

I feel SR-71's "Right Now" is a song that can be played whenever and has withstood the test of time. Since being released in 2000, it has received a tremendous amount of air play and is located on several soundtracks. I have been waiting a long time for Mitch Allan's solo project to come out, which should include most, if not all, of the members of SR-71.

Appalachian Brewing Company- Peregrine Pilsner

I went to Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg, PA tonight for a work-related function and I sampled the Peregrine Pilsner. The beer is not officially released until Friday, April 3, but there was a tasting of it tonight from 7:00-9:00. Overall, I would say this it is a good beer. The texture is crisp, but dry. This beer will definitely dry your mouth out as you drink it, but I think that is typical of Czech Pilsners. The beer is crafted in the traditional Czech Pilsner style and contains 4.8% ABV. It has a nice offset of hops to complement the taste. I highly recommend trying it during the month of April, as that is the only time of the year it is available.
