XHM #63 - "Hitgirl on patrol" (2011 April 18)

7:21am - 9:02am

On this fine spring day, we frolic under cherry blossoms and concrete as The Chemical Brothers' score to Hanna is released. D'n'B, The XX and dubstep rule, along with a mad scramble to fight dead air. I sounded surprisingly fine for the first bike ride to the station of the year. The West 29th route is monstrous at times; it'll take some time to adjust.

One anecdote I forgot to share: The 1996 Chemical Brothers tour was one of the loudest things I had experienced until the My Bloody Valentine reunion. My ears rang for four days, hence why I wear earplugs whenever I can.
