It’s not #saturdaychores, but it is Tina and her cat, Rollie. 

Because Tina and Rollie

"I know what helped me was just keeping a very small focus on what was in front of me. When I had cancer, when my mother died, and when I was truly rock bottom, what was helpful to me were just the smallest steps of even just lying still and breathing and being like: ‘Ok, I’m alive. I’m here. And I’m breathing. Now I’m going to take a step beyond that even if it’s just a literal step.’ It was so helpful to me to focus on a small area and to not worry about things too far ahead. Each of those small steps has led me down a much bigger, longer road."

She’s smart and funny and real.

Harvest Records in Asheville, North Carolina threw my favorite one day party of the year.

Had to good fortune to cross paths with these gentlemen on a few occasions this fall.  Give a listen.


Landlady and what’s “Under The Yard”
Watch Hannah Darrah’s new claymation video

This song is fictional, sung by a person who’s in tune with the ground, his family, his organs, and ultimately knowing where he’d like to end up. By accident / on purpose it’s also about all of us. What we know and what we don’t know. What we’re hungry for and what we wish would stay a secret. 

This video is the most advanced stop-motion work attempted by Hannah Darrah. She dove in head first drawing inspiration from Cari Vander Yacht’s artwork for our album Upright Behavior. This video was a big first for her as it is also our big first video. The beauty she was able to craft and destroy and move and shake hit us all in the guts the first time we saw the video. We had no edits or suggestions. We hope you don’t either.

'Follow the Music' by Alice Gerrard comes out today! Working on the cover shoot for this album with Alice was such a great experience. She is such an inspiring, energetic force and spending time with her was incredibly special to us. Read more about Alice and the new record on Pitchfork: (at Dear Hearts)

Wonderful people helped make this record.

Steve Gunn peforms a track from his Way Out Weather "Shadow Bros" and one from Time Off "Old Strange."  I love both the acoustic version and the version on the record.  Thank you Nelsonville Music Festival.

Jordon O Jordon is thoughtful, kind and writes wonderful songs

This week’s hidden treat.  Sondre Lerche opening for St. Vincent on Wednesday.  Discovered him through an amazing feature on Norway in Magnet Magazine — likely about eight years ago.  I can’t find it online — wll have to dig.

Give yourself time to get to know these songs — the good news is you can then go back and savor his previous releases

NSFW video from the Raveonettes.  The Danes came to town to close out the first Moerlein stage at MPMF14.
