Wondrous thunderstorm last night, with lightning filling up the sky, torrential rain, and heavy wind.
I was too exited to sleep so I put on some music and broke out an ink pen to flush out this idea I had for the radio station. There’s no compiled story yet, but the front page of WOXY gives (more than a) glimmer of hope for those fine folks.
Speaking of music, I can’t stop playing these albums:
The new Indigo Girls record, Despite Our Differences. I thought voices got more gruff as we get on, but Emily and Amy sound super smooth here – wrapping their words and worldview around folk rock goodness. (One particular song, “Little Perennials,” makes me wonder if they’ve heard the Hidden Cameras “We Oh We”)
The Decemberists – Crane Wife. This album slips in naturally to any situation I’ve thrown at it, whether I be trying to concentrate or zone out. They were a favorite last year (both recorded and on tour), and this release solidifies my love for them.
There’s more stuff to soak in. Until then, it’s time to punch the clock.
