Song of the Day: "Blip of Joy"

Long day. Long week. Clicked send on 99 pages of pie charts earlier and picking up a buddy at the airport for a couple days of doing things and not, as I really would love to be doing, napping. Oh, picking him up at midnight.

Busy busy, tired tired.

And now this song is like walking out from a stuffy tomb into fresh air and (not too bright) sunshine. I might just have to (pretend I'm going to) to see them in August on their tour.

Who, you might ask? The Drums.

Song of the Day: "Long Haul"

Damn this is really nice: country-ish music for people who liked The Sundays.

Song of the Day: "Outside"

I was delighted to find Edwyn Collins with a well-reviewed new album (plenty happy that he has a new album--a sign of continued recovery--that it's got solid reviews is icing on the cake, and I love icing).

Song of the Day: "Blown to Bits"

Charly Bliss had a surprise entry to my top 10 albums of 2017, right between Jens Lekman and Manchester Orchestra. Their new album, Young Enough, is among the 50 best reviewed new albums of 2019 (so far).

So do Edwyn Collins and Patty Griffin (note to self).

Song of the Day: "Younger"

You know it's been a stressful week when I'm posting music to the blog (it's a pretty good sign that I'm procrastinating work stuff). And it's really bad when it's just blah music like this week's run of songs.

Sadly the new Mountain Goats isn't really bucking that trend.

Boo.

Song of the Day: "Peace"

Peace? Piece of shit is more like it.

Okay, that's totally unfair and really harsh. Mediocre as it might be, it's not a piece of shit.

At least not a very large one.
