Vinyl | We Are Scientists

Here we have another edition of "Abby's growing record collection." For today's episode, I'm featuring the new We Are Scientists EP.

I mean, I guess Business Casual isn't all that new. I got it in the mail the third day of 2014, and the guys have a full length coming out in less than a month, but this is just an excuse for me to post something on the internet about the band that changed my life in more ways than any other band ever has.

My history with We Are Scientists goes way back, to like 2006, when I stumbled upon the music video on the OnDemand channels for Nobody Move, Nobody Gets Hurt. After that I downloaded all the songs from With Love and Squalor on WinMX (going old school). Then two years later the Lonely Island posted the music video for After Hours on their YouTube channel, because Akiva Shaffer directed the thing. Akiva actually directed several videos for WAS over the years, so it was a bit of serendipity that I found them again.

After that, the rest of history. I joined their message board, made about a dozen friends initially and we talked all the time. We still talk today. It's been 6 years since, and I consider some of those people my best friends, honestly.

In 2008, I saw We Are Scientists for the first time at Neumos, then two years later my friends and I embarked on the "WASTRAVAGANZA," where we saw them in Seattle, Portland, at then trekked to San Francisco for their gig. It's one of my favorite memories in my life, and I'm so thankful to have this band in my life because of it.

And for your viewing pleasure, here are some of my favorite pictures I've taken of the guys. I'm excited to see them again in May, to say the least.

And then these beautiful memories.

I <3 you guys.
