I have no concept of weekends.
To paraphrase the mayor of Virgil, TX, Earl Culver (played the late Spalding Gray) in True Stories I can’t tell the difference between working and not-working. The only leisure I really enjoy is reading, listening to music and seeing live shows. Everything else feels like a huge waste of time.
Here’s a good one to enjoy today as you slog through Monday.
I flipped when I heard this new stuff by Leeds, England‘s The Lodger. It’s from their debut album (Grown-Ups; out now) on UK label Angular and US indie Slumberland. The album mixes jittery UK indie-pop a’la The Wedding Present with that unique, dark English mood (a’la The Housemartins) that has soothed many a bleak Georgia night for me.
