We are home for today, showering, doing laundry, etc. and preparing for the second leg of our tour with Reverse the Curse! I wanted to take a minute to talk about Delay. If you have never heard or seen Delay, you should. They are not only extremely talented folks, they are also incredibly good people. There are few people I feel more comfortable around or have a better time with. We are super grateful to have had this time to hang out and play serious jams with them! Thanks!

Here are our top 10 albums of 2011, in no particular order:
Madeline - Black Velvet
This record is super amazing! I can't tell you how many times we listened to this during the July tour.
Vacation - Vacation
These dudes are a total party every single time you are around them. This record delivers that, plus super hard lo-fi jams.
Landlord - Beneath The Wheel
These dudes' first album was super good, but I think this one takes it to a new level. Another album that we listened to endlessly in July.
Tenement - Napalm Dream
The Tenement full length was a long time coming, and completely worth it.
Reverse the Curse - Hither & Yon
Our good buddies from Cleveland delivered this gem. The album is super intense in every way. Recorded and produced at Columbus' own The Tone Shoppe.
Bright Eyes - The People's Key
I saw Bright Eyes when they last came through Columbus over the summer and it was fantastic. This album is the Bright Eyes album I have been wanting since Lifted. We listened to this one a lot during our last tour in November.
Saintseneca - Last
This record rules. If you haven't heard it yet, listen to it, you will love listening to it. I guarantee. Another Tone Shoppe production.
Good Luck - Without Hesitation
Good Luck's first album Into Lake Griffy was so super good. This album is just as super good. Seriously.
Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
I saw Robin Pecknold last year when he opened for Joanna Newsom. He played a few new songs at that show and they left a very strong impression. When I finally heard them fully realized on this album it made me very happy. I love this album more each time I listen to it.
Moon High - Six Suns
This album sounds so good. You can hear how much went into this self recorded/produced album and it is beautiful. Plus the songs are great and this band is great live.
It was a very good year.

We are home from tour! It was an incredible time, we played so many fun shows, met so many awesome folks and heard so much good music! Thank you to everyone who came to hang out, set up a show, played with us or let us stay with them. Also thanks to Landlord and Madeline for both releasing new records that we listened to non-stop on the drives.
We will be out on tour again soon (September/October) and a lot more this year and 2012, so if we didn't get to hang out this month, we'll do it soon!

Last night at Rumba Cafe was totally awesome. I mean Moon High, Andrew Graham and Feature Films, how fantastic is that?

Thank you very much for everyone who made our 5 year anniversary completely awesome, because it was completely awesome! Seriously. A huge thanks to the Monster House, Andy Cook, the Sidekicks and Delay.
Then, Saturday in Athens was also amazing. The Alwood Sisters are fantastic and it is always fun to play with them. Also, if you live in the Midwest and have never been to Casa Nueva in Athens, OH I think that you should. The people who operate it are fantastically nice and smart, plus it has great food and live music. Do it.
All in all, we in Tin Armor all agreed. Best. Weekend. Ever.
And hey, this Saturday we will be playing at the 83 Gallery with Andy Cook and the Wanderloons for Gallery Hop. If you're in Columbus, it will be very fun!
