At the risk of getting all bloggy, I’m gonna talk about some of the music I’m buying. The thing is: a month or two ago, I was starting to worry that I was getting old or something. I had a huge new-music dry spell, which I figure is how my eventual lamification will begin. It’ll seem insiduously innocent for a while but then years will have passed, and I’ll find myself cursing the kids for not making anymore dance-punk or lo-fi synthpop.

But I stave it off for the time-being because I have a nice big stack of CDs waiting for my attention. Awesome. I guess there really was just nothing good out there until now. Last week, I picked up these three: War Against the Mystics by the Flaming Lips (which rocks more and affirms life/mortality slightly less), Islands Return to the Sea (I like it, need to refresh my memory on the Unicorns), and the new Morrissey (getting neglected).

Today, I got My Life in the Bush of Ghosts and the new Built to Spill. I’m confident these will be awesome. And then I got home and my Amazon order had arrived: Drum’s Not Dead by Liars, The Folded Palm by Frog Eyes, and Destroyer’s Notorious Lightning and Other Works.

Man, this is a joy I have not know for a while. Wish me luck.
