Around the Horn
Mouth Off is a hit!, GLEE is the critics’ new fave, USA Today loves stripped down aca, the ladies pwn Sweeps, RARB weighs in on the latest OTB album, CASA Board picks up new members, Deke is still telling you how to get an aca career, Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix on Bonnie, betteracappella.com, Soup2Nuts is chock full.

Cool Chord of the Week Christopher gets electrified by Duwende.

Names You Should Know Deeeeeeeeke.
(Edit: Our new friend Amy thoughtfully wrote in to ask us where each of the clips from this segment came from.  Good question!  Deke’s solo and muted trumpet clips come from “Summertime” off the House Jacks album Get Down Mr. President.  The arrangement clips appear in this order: House Jacks singing “The Way It Makes Me Feel” from Funkwich, Colorado College The Back Row singing “Gone” from Unleash the Periscope, The Alleycats singing “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” from Meow: That’s What I Call Music, University of Oregon Divisi singing “Two Points for Honesty” from Roots, House Jacks singing “This Man’s Pride” from Fitchy & Grikko.  Thanks Amy!)

Better than the Original Frou Frou is dang good.  But Cornell Chordials rawk on.

Girlfriend of the Week Dave is currently dating the voice and arranging brain of Jazzy Danziger.

Album Review USC SoCal VoCals’ Unanimous: too perfect?  Christopher and Dave recommend buying this album, but not without some reservations.

Musical Mouthful
OTB.  WTF.

Head2Head WashU Amateurs and UVA Academical Village People face off with their versions of “This Love” opb Maroon 5.  It’s a close contest.  James Gammon + tremolo organ = tasty.

This is Not an Instrument Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the UNC Clefhangers.

Don’t Quit Your Day Job Halalala.  Hahahaha

Album Review Dave loves the latest album Play the Game from the Tufts Beelzebubs, and Christopher wants to marry it.  Can you marry a recording in Virginia?

Around the Horn Sweeps are done, BITH on The Today Show, acappellanow, Aarhus, sign up to compete on MTV, Glee, A Cappella Records, get an a cappella career, why the West keeps dominating the ICCA, an a cappella house, Tunes to Teens sends aca CDs to Kenya, melodyne vs. autotune.

My New Boyfriend Nate Altimari ruins Christopher daily.

Better than the Original “Broken Wings” by Mr. Mister is a classic.  But Naturally 7 does it better.  Period.

Cool Chord of the Week WWAAAAAAAALLLLL.

The Good Ol’ Days Take 6′s debut album is old, but it will never get old.

Album Review Ben Folds Presents: University A Cappella. Uhh… at least Ben Folds likes it.
