It is happening again. After two dormant weeks of doing virtually nothing (OK, very little is more like it), evenings this week were spent spinning vinyl by The Smiths and painting Andi’s sewing room in preparation for putting in the bamboo flooring this weekend.
Next up will be my record room, which will be a big pain; moving thousands of CDs, LPs and 7″ Singles is not a task I will find enjoyable (hence the top photo). But the finished product will be the ultimate reward. I digress.
This continues my recent obsession with indie pop: listening to Louder Than Bombs and The Queen Is Dead has reinvigorated my desire to write and discover new music; funny that a band that called it quits about 25 years ago has spawned that urge. Anyway.
Tonight’s show was pieced together with a lot of new music, hence all the links to tunes available for your bonus sampling. The bold songs link to SoundClick versions of the track; note that I’ll be posting about some of the other tracks on this list in the next week or two. Check ’em all out and let me know which is your favorite!
