What’s the Milky Chance? I’m digging these guys latest tracks and this video reminds me of playing outside when I was a kid… though I never threw a bunch of that chalky paint in anyone’s face. Anyway, seems like a nice Friday evening for a hike Down by The River, you might find me there in a few if you…

It’s July 4th. Rock Out. Or if you prefer, something more American, more melancholy, and possibly more pretentious, and yes, The National is one of my favorite bands… [hili]

A little Monday music for you. I picked up this album sometime early last year and keep coming back to it. Radical Face is to music what cottage manufacturing is to backpacking; he puts out great stuff and does everything him self. “Everyone knows if you care, then let it go…” [hili]
