Song of the Day: "Come Smile With Me"

That feeling when you realize that you might actually love dreampop.

Song of the Day: "Woman"

You know what's weird? That Cat Power is releasing her tenth studio album and this is only the second time I've featured her music on my blog (and both times were collaborations with other musicians)?

No, that shit's pretty much normal.

It's that when I was reading her Wikipedia entry, about how Chan Marshall adopted the moniker Cat Power, I ran across the name--the very distinctive name--of one of my first friends in Georgia. He's an actor and musician.

As an actor, he's best known for a miniseries that has not yet been aired. That's weird too.

Song of the Day: "Give A Little"

I learned of Maggie Rogers because she's going to be the musical guest on next week's SNL.

I like her.

Song of the Day: "Think I'm Still in Love With You"

If I've heard of, or heard Joyce Manor before today, I don't recall it. If you'd mentioned the name to me outside the context of the album review that prompted me to look them up, I would have assumed that was someone in the HR department at my last job.

Or the job before that.

Instead it's an indie band from Torrance, California. Fun fact: Torrance is about 35 miles from West Covina (CXG's final season begins tonight).

Joyce is often described as punk, but that can't be right. They sound pretty much on par with Foo Fighters (which I say with considerable respect).

Also this is from their fifth album. Where have I been this decade?

Song of the Day: "Rings"

When I downloaded the new Pinegrove album, I was so taken by it that I made a point to recommend it to a couple of friends who I thought would dig the sound.

But I didn't think to post anything here. I must have seen something shiny.

Stupid shiny objects.

Skylight is a really good album. Check it out.
