Song of the Day: "The End of Everything"

Bob Mould's Patch the Sky was part of the musical accompaniment on my drive from Florida to The Snell. While it wasn't quite Lemonade, it was more distinctive than Radiohead or Frightened Rabbit.

For Your Consideration: The Grinder

Outstanding Comedy Series

The most meta comedy on TV today and sadly (or not) cancelled after a mere single season (I say not because I'm more inclined to try to enjoy something as great when it doesn't go a season or 2 or 14 too long).

Am I celebrating the show just because I'm in the home of a sister of a dude who directed some episodes of the show?

No. That would be silly.

It's just a marvelous coincidence.

Song of the Day: "Go!"

Mai Lan and Steve Vai join M83 on this track from Junk.

Song of the Day: "Love Like That"

Mayer Hathorne's got one of them, whatchamacallits, new albums, out: Man About Town.

Consider yourself enlightened.

Song of the Day: "I Wish I Was Sober"

I can't tell you anything about Frightened Rabbit's Painting of a Panic Attack yet, but I expect to spend some quality time with it on tomorrow's drive to the Snell. I'll report back after that.

Song of the Day: "Casual Party"

The casual party is, of course, the preferable alternative to the dress-up party.

No party is, of course, the preferable alternative to both.

New Band of Horses (and band with no actual horses) is coming next month.

Song of the Day: "Ain't No Man"

The Avett Bros. (you know, from Salem) return with their ninth studio album. I'm surprised that people still haven't heard of them while also totally not surprised that people still haven't heard of them... and frankly, that's for the best (if you know them, you don't want them at the Moda Center).
