THE CELEBRATORY NATURE
OF A SOLITARY STATE









photos from the field trip to the boat graveyard.

so i am heading out of town this weekend, which i understand is not of interest to any of you, except that i will be traveling with Matt & Kim and The Goddamn Rattlesnake & Poor Boy Johnshon featuring Crozier. they are playing shows at hampshire college on saturday and in boston on sunday. so if you happen to live near any of those locales you may want to come check them out. details can be found here.

and tonight Darius Jones speaks at cooper union. . . later on Okkervil River headlines at the knitting factory. can't go wrong anyway you slice it.

MP3:

so i know this album came out a while ago and was posted around pretty hard. but it has popped up on my itunes a few times recently and reminded me why it was so popular in the first place. Believer Magazine put out this compiliation of covers this past summer that came with an issue of the magazine. kinda indie-heavy, but still diverse enough to let the whole thing play through twice in a row. The first track is a catchy one by The Constantines covering Elevator To Hell. and the second track i had to post simply cause it's a cover of "Ohio" originally by Damien Jurado (who i am not a fan of), but Coco Rosie seems pretty good at transforming this into something almost unrecognizable to fans of the blahness of the original. and it's about ohio. i like ohio.

• The Constantines - Why I Didn’t Like August '93

• Coco Rosie - Ohio
