Once in a while, good fortune smiles on you in such a way, that even the most hardened of hearts and most devout of atheists might believe that an invisible, all-knowing force is guiding things. I would like to take this very first installment of Destructoid's new music feature, Aural Fixation, to evangelize not only about how great this feature series will be, but that, "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
My experience begins with just another visit to the well-known, independent record store in New York City called Other Music. Were you able to namedrop a mere fraction of the sort of musical selections there, you might be able to hold court with Lord Nex without him laughing at you when you confuse Faust and Can (Remember, kids, Damo is a clear difference).
Scouring the used CDs usually just leads to finding albums that I've been meaning to buy on the cheap, and low-risk experimentation with bands I've never heard. Last week, though, I struck $1.99 gold with this find.
...a musical trio ahead of their time. Hunter, Tug, and Matthew are three talented eleven-year-olds with similar musical passions who are more musically progressive than many artists twice their age! While their exciting and catchy musical style reflects that of an older age, the lyrical content is certainly written from the amusing view of a pre-teen.
Hit the jump to see what you've been missing your whole lives.
I was unaware that the correct way to play Xbox 360 with your friends is for each of you to have different games sitting on your laps. Perhaps it's a symbol of affluence to go along with the prep school uniforms, stately southern mansion, and limo ride to school.
I hazard that the logic must go: "I've got so much money, I've got games I haven't even played yet in my lap -- and so do my friends." I must say, I prefer the diamond grill and spinners to this brand of showiness.
Stage mothers everywhere should be in awe of what Judy Watson has accomplished here: writing lyrics, organizing a CD release, video, web site, and marketing materials for her son's band. This will undoubtedly ensure that once these boys hit puberty and look back on this, they will be shamed one hundred times over for being willing participants in such a grand scheme.
The Black Out media onslaught continues with a behind-the-scenes rehearsal for the Video Games video, and this interview on Fox 5 DC!
My suggestion? Change managers now, and deny any creative involvement with the mother. Sue for back royalties and use of your images, divorce your parents, and start listening to Acid Mothers Temple as soon as possible (or alternatively, the Boredoms). Still, Black Out is the best joke band to hail from Virginia since these guys, so it can't be all bad.
For any further information, get in touch with the band yourself, either through their MySpace, or the publicly available e-mails on their web site.
Enjoy, until the next installment of Aural Fixation, which I assure you, will be at least slightly more serious. If you have any suggestions for musicians you'd like to see interviewed, don't hesitate to contact us.

ChrisHannard Fallout 4 wouldn't be Fallout with ridiculous glitches and shenanigans. Here are a few I've run into - [youtube]https://youtu.be/qgYAXsDq4Uw[/youtube]StriderHoang I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.The Dyslexic Laywer Got to admit I didn't expect to find a mewtwo amiibo at my bookstore of all places...Mike Martin My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too. OverlordZetta Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.Lawman Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.Dr Mel This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....Shinta Wii U, top selling black friday item on target.com. Take that you anti-Wii U people.

Hype!Avoclefo Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?Niero Desu Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.OrochiLeona Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?Nathan D After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now. Pixie The Fairy When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.Confuseddalek I found this weird game called Samurai Heroes for 8 dollars today. Its not bad.Solar Pony Django Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.RadicalYoseph If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.James Internet Ego Played all of Life is Strange today in one sitting. Bloody hell. You should all play it. Only game this year to make me cry. Bravo developers. Possibly the most valuable thing I've ever bought for £10.Gamemaniac3434 Last night, got farther than ever in Wasteland 2. This is my third playthrough-once thru beta, once through the orig version, now on Directors cut. Worth the restart, and it speaks highly of the game that I like it enough to do this. DAMONTA HERE I COME!KeithTheGeek GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO.
Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.
