So, inbetween paying an obscene amount of money today for a gin-u-wine vintage aluminum xmas tree (she who is most beloved has excellent taste in all things retro), and watching the Pittsburgh Steelers clinch a playoff berth(pleasepleaseplease), I'm gonna give you some more tunes.

Note, I've have reposted some expired songs at the end of the post.

Longer post tomorrow, with a calendar of events. Whooppppeee.

Today we've got two of my favorite mopers and sad boys.

Read more about the Appalachian-loving Palace boy Will Oldham here.

Read more about Mean Mark Eitzel here.

I love that Palace Songs tune. Howard put it on a mix tape for me in summer 95 - it was sandwiched between Thorns by Spare Snare and Waited Too Long by Thinking Fellers Union. (And, of course, Sebadoh made an appearance halfway through the B side, as always). Great to hear it again, thanks.
