"Take a Walk" by Passion Pit

I have been without Internet for the month of July--hence the dearth of activity here.

So here's a compelling music video that aptly complements Passion Pit's surprisingly ambitious dismantling of the American dream. It's worth your time and attention.

"Island Garden Song" by the Mountain Goats

Island Garden Song by The Mountain Goats on Grooveshark

So I just got The Coroner's Gambit. The nice thing about being addicted to the Mountain Goats is that with such an expansive discography alongside his still prolific album-almost-every-year production, I can pretty much count on listening to new stuff (and you can bank on having to hear it from me) for years to come.

Anyway. This song is marvelous and, despite sounding like so many other of his songs, it also sounds somehow completely different and unique. That's the beauty of the Mountain Goats. He only has about five or six different songs that he's written a hundred times each, yet every single one of them is unique. This, like so many others, is a treasure.
