There's a big day coming. I can hardly wait.

Working from home the rest of the afternoon, at my favorite spot at the dining room table among all the big Southern-facing windows. Bailey and the cat are sleeping in the diminshing sun's rays and I'm listening to a vinyl reissue of Painful, one of my favorite Yo La Tengo albums, and just waiting for our little guy to make his grand entrance into our world. Can't wait to meet him.

The ruins were wild.

I love The New Pornographers more and more.
Plus, you just can never go wrong with Neko Case and that voice.
That voice. She could sing about anything and I'd just get lost in it.
I know the album's been out for a little bit but it's just hitting me in the right way today so I felt like sharing it.

Et tu, Congo?

I know so very little about this musician except that the EP is awesome.
Be sure to check it out.
Here's a track from it:

Also, be sure to check out the Ecstatic Peace art show/shop at Partners & Spade.
Happening there now.

Riding on the freak train, where there's a whole new story there.

I already dug The War On Drugs and now completely love the new Kurt Vile solo album, "Childish Prodigy", that's about to come out as well.
This track is perfect for riding the subway.
Just put on your headphones, crank it up and people watch.

Dusk before my very eyes.

OK, Yo La Tengo, I am falling back in love with you all over again.

(P.S. I was trying to post the track "More Stars Than There Are In Heaven" but apparently the file is too big to post).
