The last 24 hours has sucked. First inaugural organizers cut Gene Robinson from the broadcast of the inauguration. And then I discovered that one of my favorite blogs ill-formed was shutdown. boo.

Here We Go Magic-s/t

I'm reposting this because it's such serious headphone candy. The arch of Here We Go Magic is reminiscent of early Eno. And even some of the rythyms and cyclical pentatonic meandering call to mind My Life in the Bush of Ghosts without ever sounding derivative or forced.

Highly Recommended!!!
It's -7 in Chicago right now. Stay inside and stay warm with some new music.

Asobi Seksu-Hush


Antony & the Johnsons-The Crying Light

Highly Recommended!!!

Bruce Springsteen-Working on a Dream

The Hunches-Exit Dreams

At the request of the band, I've been sitting on this one for awhile. Exit Dreams is the final studio album of one of the greatest Portland bands to ever exist. It's a wonderfully candid romance about the regret that comes with nostalgia. And without overstating it, it's one of the single greatest records I've ever heard. Not everyone will fall in love with The Hunches the way I have. But EVERYONE should hear this album at least once. Especially if you've ever been 20 something years old and felt resigned to the trajectory of the decisions you've made.

The version I'm posting is the one that is currently floating around on the internet. But if anyone is interested I also have the unmastered version that is ripped directly from the test vinyl and has its own distinctly badass character to it.


Fever Ray-s/t
