Calm Go the Wild Seas
Monkey pirate robot t-shirt. I must have it. I simply must.
When is a year-end list not a best-of list? When it’s Insound’s top 100 sellers for the year. There’s no distinction between releases in 2003 and older releases, albums or EPs or even DVDs. It’s an interesting look at what the discriminating hipster bought this year. From Mystery & Misery.
Jay Farrar has a selection of live video clips and unreleased mp3s from Terroir Blues availble on his website. After being initially very impressed with Terroir Blues, I’ve found it hasn’t held my attention over the long haul. I still think it’s more solid than Sebastapol, but as has been said many times before, he’ll probably never top Trace – not that that’s anything to be ashamed of. Thanks to LHB.
Stylus offers up their top 10 list of albums to fall asleep to. I’ve dozed off to Lazer Guided Melodies before, for sure. I’d also like to submit Circulatory System to the list – their first album is like the soundtrack to a dream. Strange, hazy and just a little bit sinister.
Meetings abound today. But! There’s a fairly good chance I’ll be going to Seattle for a few days in February (for work). That will be exciting. I haven’t been on a plane in almost four years.
