I have trouble thinking of a more self-indulgent, “first world problem” than saying “I hate this free new album I’ve been given.”


When the 1990s were getting older, there was this crazy new music format called MP3. It wasn’t the greatest audio format, but it was good enough. It was compressed in such a way that it was easy to download, and yet sounded good to most normal people. Suddenly, you could download a whole album’s worth of music to your computer. And, for me at least, that music was free. (Because I stole it.)

Frazey Ford is one of the Be Good Tanyas. This song is from her newest upcoming album, Indian Ocean.

Champions Of Red Wine - The New Pornographers - Brill Bruisers

The New Pornographers new release is terrific, as I expected.  So much good stuff.  This Neko Case track sounds like something from early 80’s ELO.
