I'm almost 40 now. Keeping up with new music is a bit different from when I was younger. I find I rely on End-of-Year lists more now than ever before. January is usually a time for me to catch up on the previous year. I like it because there is inevitably great music that I missed. For the record, Low's Double Negative? Album of the Year. More like a Fennesz record than anything. Just listen to Tempest below.
Soccer Mommy. Great Indie Album.
Christine and the Queens. Is this Adult Contemporary?? How apropos.
singers voice is either gonna be a deal breaker for you or a winner.
Nice one. I like the colors. I remember learning a trick in school about copyright. If you ever want proof of authorship what you can do is mail yourself a copy of the design and then never open the letter. This way, the envelope is time stamped and the image inside is kept safe.
I didn't realize that attack to Nancy Kerrigan was at Cobo Arena. My first concert was there (Green Day and Pansy Division).
My girlfriend (and I) have been watching a show called This is Us on Netflix. It's a family drama, told through a multigenerational anachronistic lens. Each episode has a profound story line and almost without fail, a Sufjan song is played that perfectly matches the sentiment on screen. That breathy voice, those chamber chords. He nails it every time.
hey pal. you told me you wanted your studio to be bad-ass so i drew some bad ass details that are apparently too rich for even your blood. :) that entry is still gonna be cool, but less so now. oh well. next project right? right?
here's a teaser for everyone. the view is looking up from the creek toward the studio.
Glad you settled into that one. I was worried it might slip past you, because I know how much you would enjoy it. I think I told you that I saw him live as well. Excellent show. First, the mix was just perfect. Sounded so good. Second, they would do little improvisations here and there, during each song. Made it really fun and intimate. Not sure if you tours the states yet. Be on the look out!
Andy Shauf : The Party
Elbow : Little Fictions
Tame Impala : Currents
and The War on Drugs
I never really got a sense of quantites for anything throughout the podcast. We had a witness of one gold bar coming from a box that maybe had more bars inside, but that was an assumption. We also have no idea how much guilding was actually being done, but because he was the only one in the country doing it, it could have been a lot.
Now I feel like I'm destroying a good storey by analyzing it too much. What I mean to say is "Thar's gold in them hills."
I finished it last night. Plowed through it actually. I am a binger at heart. I thought it fantastic as well. One thought I had that I didn't hear anyone on the podcast touch on, and maybe I missed it, but to me, there is an obvious connection between the gold bars that he has and the fire guilding that he does. i'm just wondering if his stashed gold in the forest isn't about him being rich, and more about regularly buying and using gold for horology. Thoughts?
