[new music roundup] 9.27.11

So this is a bit late, but I was at the Big Black Delta show at The Satellite last night (very good show btw, definitely worth checking out if you have the chance), followed by a pretty hectic day of work, and I may have had one too many PRB tall boys at the show.  Needless to say, today I wasn’t exactly the olympic caliber blogger I aim to be today.
