Tori Amos has been doing what she does for years. She’s had huge hits with songs like “Crucify,” “God,” “Cornflake Girl” and others. Now she’s back at it with a new album, Abnormally Attracted To Sin, due out on May 19th. I got a lot of really positive feedback on this song, but I think it was mostly the Amos fans getting in their 2-cents.

The Script are one of those bands that is absolutely HUGE in Europe, but is just building a following here in America. They’ve gone #1 with “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” in at least five countries, are multi-platinum in several countries including UK and Ireland, and they’re about to take the US by storm.

Already being hailed as the “other” band from Ireland, this 3-piece from Dublin are featured in the TV series The Ghost Whisperer starring Jennifer Love Hewitt and in VH1’s Sober House starring Dr. Drew. Their self-titled debut album was released stateside on St. Patty’s Day (imagine that).

If you missed the NMS today, check out the song on the band’s MySpace page. You can also find the Script on Facebook and their official website.

Though the day had a pretty crappy start, it ended up being really awesome. A lot of people were leaving, as the Flight of the Canyons Gondola wasn’t operating, and the word was that they weren’t expecting it to start up again. Some didn’t want to leave without getting any runs in, so there were some folks who decided to hike up Doc’s Run and at least get something in. I climbed about two-thirds of the way up before riding down. The wind (which was the reason the Gondola wasn’t running) was so bad that at points I felt I might get blown off the run, see the picture to the right and see if you can guess which way the wind was blowing. Before deciding to head down, on what was thought would be the only run of the day, the Gondola started up, but there weren’t any skis or boards on them, so I figured it was a test run to see if the wind was rocking them too badly. By the time I decided to head down, it was apparent that they were sending people up.

The race down an icy, wind swept Doc’s Run to the Gondola was sketchy, but totally worth as the Gondola took us up for some riding. I’m SO glad I didn’t just take off! The whole mountain was covered in powder, and it ended up being an AMAZING day of riding.

Normally weather doesn’t bother me when I’m snowboarding, but the storm that is rolling through Utah today is an exception. I’m not a fair weather boarder, but when the wind is too strong for lifts to run, that is when Ol’ Mother Nature pisses me off.

To come all the way up to the Canyons, only to be told “We’re re-evaluating every 15 minutes, but it isn’t looking good.” really sucks ass. It would be one thing if I could board any time, but Sundays are pretty much all I have. I didn’t come up last weekend because the snow was shitty, now when there’s good snow the wind is keeping me off the mountain.

So far, this day = FAIL.

Peter Bjorn and John broke into the American conciousness in 2007 with their whistle-heavy pop-tune “Young Folks”. I instantly fell in love with this band, and have been very excited to hear the new album Living Thing, which is streaming on their MySpace page. Today’s NMS is the first single from this album, “Nothing To Worry About”. I’m really not sure how I feel about this song. Part of me really wants to like it because I’m a fan of the band, and another part of me just thinks it’s weird and I don’t like it. Having listened to the album a couple times, it seems that they didn’t go the weird route for too much of the album, so hopefully they won’t fall of the planet before they put out a more chatchy and radio-friendly second single from this album.

If you missed today’s NMS, head over to Peter Bjorn and John’s MySpace page, they have this song and their entire new album streaming. You can also find PBJ on Facebook and their official website.

I’m realizing this was a bigger undertaking than I had anticipated, but I’m chugging along nonetheless in hopes that I’ll get the job done for you. Here are another 5 of the artists performing at Coachella.

Blitzen Trapper is part of what seems to be a small movement of indie-folk bands that have been getting attention lately. Coming out of Portland, Oregon, they are a slightly more rocking Fleet Foxes. I know a lot of people who are fans of this band, so I may well end up catching some of their set on Saturday. The video posted on Coachella.com is a cool, surreal piece that makes you tap your feet. They have more songs, some videos and other cool stuff on their MySpace page.

Open Happiness is a super group of sorts, featuring Cee-lo Green of Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, Brandon Urie of Panic At The Disco, Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes and Janelle Monae. The song was co-written and produced by the legendary Butch Walker. That’s quite the artillery for a Coca-Cola jingle, and it works pretty damn well.

You can purchase the song on Amazon.com or iTunes.

If you missed today’s NMS you can hear the song on the group’s MySpace page. You can also find them on Facebook.
