i heard these songs on sunday night, as i was driving home from dinner with friends. for me, when the sky has gotten that dark – dark as the road itself – and the speed of my car is ticked off only by the passing of those little reflective squares that mark the lanes, there is nothing then like a solid block of good songs. my car was a happy little tunnel of sound carving its way through the night.
the national – “vanderlyle crybaby geeks”
beach house – “10 mile stereo”
avi buffalo – “what’s in it for?”
