Mute City – Wooden Sword (via Electric Djinn)

A good indicator for me that I like music is if I would take a long drive and not feel annoyed listening to it.

This is how Mute City’s new album Wooden Sword is for me, A long Lynchian, desert drive with a kind of retro-futuristic music playing in the cassette player.

Hotel Neon – Moments (via Steve Hadfield)

The day Hotel Neon released ‘Moments’, our toddler fell asleep on me at bedtime and then cried when I tried to put her down in bed. The cycle repeated for 40 minutes before she fully woke, distraught, and we went downstairs to reset. She was irrepressibly charming and I was annoyed and tired and charmed but also annoyed at myself for not fully appreciating her charm all at once.
