As probably every person who reads this knows, I am in Rome. I'm having an excellent time but I do not have wireless internet in my room and have no real need to get on the internet. I am going to essentially abandon both phone and internet besides what is absolutely necessary to focus on reading and writing. Because of this I won't be able to keep up on all the hip new things going on in music or be able to post songs for you online. If you want new music, check out the links on the right and use the links of their pages as well. Love you all, take care.

Van Morrison - "Everyone"
Here Van Morrison plays a love song. Maybe you recognize it from the impeccable ending of The Royal Tenenbaums. Van Morrison's got some serious soul. I highly recommend Moondance, the album this is from, and Astral Weeks if you don't already have them. His songs don't really send you screaming the lyrics from the window, but sit you down in a chair, and lull you into their groove.
The buy link.

The Mountain Goats - "Sax Rohmer #1"
This is the first song released from the new Mountain Goats record, Heretic Pride. John Darnielle said that this album would be a little darker, more intense than the lukewarm Get Lonely and that seems pretty believable after hearing this tune. This one would have sounded at home on The Sunset Tree as well. I don't want to say The Mountain Goats can do no wrong, but they would have to try pretty hard.

Chriss Sutherland - "La Familia"
Pretty sadness is a tough thing. Maybe life would be great if you never had tough goodbyes, but maybe that would just mean there's no one sad to see you go. There are a few people I'm not looking forward to leaving, but as we head off to different places I'm glad there are those I love enough to be sad about.
More from that guy.
