The Elected on KEXP, Jan. 24, 2006
So Shannon posted a song from The Elected's recent performance on KEXP, but apparently missed most of the set. Thankfully, a kind soul at rk.net managed to record it and share it with the world. Now, I share it with you. We can hug later.

For those who don't know, The Elected is a project headed by Blake Sennett of Rilo Kiley fame. Their second LP, Sun Sun Sun, was released January 24 by Sup Pop. Good stuff. Plus the pic on the front page of their website is frickin' awesome. We're all in trouble if bears and owls start teaming up. Just ask Stephen Colbert.
You can buy Sun, Sun, Sun from Sub Pop.
