Speedy Ortiz - No Below
Don’t have much to say, just early Saturday morning, coffee and music.
Hayley Coupon - Feels Like We Only Go Backwards (Tame Impala cover)
Even now, moving on towards a year after its release, I kind of feel like I need to explain — like I need to somehow justify — not liking Tame Impala’s Lonerism.
It’s not that I dislike the record. On paper it’s pretty much exactly my kind of thing, but after a fair number of listens scattered across a number of months the record just leaves me flat every time.
But for one reason or another I ended up listening to Hayley Coupon’s take on this song anyway, and I was immediately smitten.
It’s a casual, loose recording. Hayley’s voice is lovely. Simple instrumentation and arrangement. The whole thing just breathes.
Happy cover Friday.

I’ve lost count of the number of reasons that Sesame Street is awesome, but now there’s another one.
Bardo Pond - Tantric Porno
I’ve been feeling off lately: misaligned, stretched thin.
This song, to me, starts with that feeling and proceeds to transform it into something that is very different and of epic scale.
Songs: Ohia - Farewell Transmission
Long day, tired, afternoon music.
What the hell is up with Friday the 14th? That’s just unsettling.
