Shouldn't Be Ashamed

I am in a self-imposed blog exile while I do and host shows this winter, but I had to come out for a few minutes for this old wilco song I just found.  So good. 


It's Just That Simple
Wilco
A.M.

John Stirratt takes the mic and takes it to country town on this oldie. 


the traveling wilburys of our time?  

i watch you braid your hair you’re from another time

when earth wasn’t so angry and god was on our side 


portlandia’s theme song IS AWESOME

(by washed out —you can listen to a few more songs on subpop’s page)


huh

its no coincidence that i kind of dropped off of this project when i started using pinterest— they serve the same exact function as a catalog of inspiration, ideas and sparks of ideas— EXCEPT for that minor little detail that you can’t pin songs! so my tumblr is still winning for the time being.

i have taken a lot of the visual stuff over there though.  


another one that took a few years to slip into, but oh-my-god do i think its awesome now.  whoa.  

this is actually a really good song to put on your ‘cleaning the house’ playlist— am i the only one who makes those?  


Ready, Able
Grizzly Bear
Veckatimest

this is kind of one of those songs you hear once every few months for a few years and think ‘that’s pretty’ and then you take the time to actually listen once and it totally blows your mind.  

i haven’t been digging for new music lately, but am finding lots of new gems in my library.  


the best song by the shins, forever the end.

you want to jump and dance

but you sat on your hands

and lost your only chance

pulled a dozen prints on wood tonight to help a local musician promote his new album- it was fun figuring out a way to describe music visually— i remember a project in one of my design classes where we had to attempt it (which i totally over thought and sucked at) and i remember feeling that it would in no way be applicable to the rest of my life.  

  funny how things turn out.

morning glory prints are definitely on the docket.  i had such an awesome summer watching our yard come alive— now we have bonfires to look forward to.
