Sorry to have been gone so long. I know everyone's day revolves around a new post from me.
This is the laziest post i've done. Just not much energy, but wanted to confirm i'm still alive.
Didn't get the secret job. Stuck at the bookstore. 'Course i'ts not really a bookstore, per se. It's a college bookstore. Loyola University Bookstore. And it's a Barnes and Noble affiliate. I'm a sellout. I'm depressed. This is my life. Yep. Kill me know.
Apologies to those i've been out of touch with over the past week, particularly mr. TEAII. Things should settle down a bit, once i get used to my schedule. I'll have better posts. Really.
Wanna post some songs, of course. As promised, they're niteswimming songs. I've tried to avoid putting up songs i've gotten from other music blogs, cuz i can never remember where i got them, and can't give proper credit, but i'll make an exception this time.
The Joel Plaskett Emergency...well, I know nothing about this band, but they're on my list of albums to buy based on this sole song...it's a lovely little number with surging guitar toward the end.
King Creosote... same deal....no idea anything about this band. But this song is one of my top 3 favorite songs i've downloaded. It's...well, listen. Worship.
Neil Halsted. Neil is the singer/songwriter for the vastly underrated Mojave 3, formerly the vastly overrated Slowdive. This is from his solo album Sleeping on Roads. His records are a lush mix of alt-country and Townes Van Zandt sadness, filtered through a Nick Drake sensibility. Every song on this album is brilliant, but this tune seemed to fit the theme...traveling at night...the moon, her majesty...sadness.

King Creosote: Lavendar Moon (mp3)

I'll try to do better. Talk to me
