Back from the Dead

I don't know much about google, but I do know it's pretty much taken over the world. This is why about 9 months ago, when my college email system linked up with google chrome, or google + or whatever the hell it's called these days, I had to stop contemplating the art of the mix tape. No matter WHAT I tried it wouldn't let me sign into this thing, and every musical bone in my body cringed that I couldn't rant and rave my latest indie obsessions all over the internet anymore. This blog's absence forced me to create a tumblr (BLECH) which I still cannot, for the life of me, figure out. It did allow me to devote an entire space to poetry, all of which maybe two people read. Luckily someone thought it was okay, and I'll be reading a piece at SCU's literary arts exhibition next week.
But that's aside the fact. Five songs you need to hear:
1) Anna Sun - Walk The Moon
Try not to love this too much. Firecrackers in the east, my car parked south, your hands on my cheeks your shoulder in my mouth

2) Lorge - El Ten Eleven

3) Lay Your Cards Out - Polica
Channy Moon formerly of Roma di Luna. Broken up from her hubby/former bandmate and making magic because of it.Hypnotizing.

4) 40 Mark Strasse - The Shins
I've been obsessed with this album.

5) You're the Kind of Girl - Lee Fields

  1. 'Frida' is more than ok...
    "In poets, as true genius is but rare,
    True taste as seldom is the critic's share."
    I think Pope was referring to something other than the written word. Your life is didactic to your words...continued success in both.
