A beautiful day, in London at least, and one which inspired me to find some salute-to-the-sun music for heading into work. “Unbroken Chain” and “What Would I Want, Sky?” worked pretty harmoniously as I was crossing Millennium Bridge; just wondering if something akin to spring has changed your listening habits in any way?

The terrific new Blitzen Trapper album would probably suit the weather rather well, too; I’ll be writing about that once we get a load of production hassle out of the way. Still loving Ariel Pink, plus a fair bit of the Graham Nash tribute (especially Alela Diane‘s track), and the “Wu Massacre” trio album. One utterly wretched album here, and it might not be a huge stretch to guess which one…
