Song of the Day: "Walt Whitman"

Midge shows off her Bell Biv Devoe-inspired summer haircut
Yesterday we talked about how Great Lake Swimmers fit nicely in the big folkie combo sound of bands like The Head and the Heart and Blind Pilot (for reals, see here) -- Trampled by Turtles does that and hits the fringe of alt country that Avett Brothers rule. Stars and Satellites is their sixth album and I'm taking a risk, buying on a whim since it's $5 at Amazon. So far I'm feeling good (much better than MDNA). And I've added some older albums to my liberry queue (viva Socialisms!).

Why the picture of Midge, who is still hanging in there thank you very much? Because Randall (RIP) had a lovely yellow lab named Whitman, after Walt. Duh.

Song: "Walt Whitman"
Artist: Trampled by Turtles
