'Emmylou' by First Aid Kit
It’s only getting a lot of airplay on a few stations, but you should check out this song immediately. It might be one of the best country songs in the last 5 years and they’re not even an American band.

You want them to notice
The ragged ends of your summer dress
You want them to see you
Like they see any other girl
They just see a faggot
They hold their breath not to catch the sick
I’m at the inevitable stage in my music life where I’m revisiting all of the bands that I danced and bled for in circle pits across Dallas punk venues and basement shows that I spent so much of my time in. By far the band that I am still most impressed with in their journey, and just plain story, is Against Me!
I really hope that somewhere somewhere is editing together a documentary about this former anarcho punk band from Florida now led by badass, unapologetic transwoman still making the same great music.

It’s been raining for about 4 days straight in Dallas, it’s hovering around the mid 60’s, and everyone’s driving slow.
If today isn’t a Tom Waits kind of day, I don’t know what is.
Rodriguez - Cause
This seriously might be the most beautiful song ever written.

Rodriguez - Inner City Blues
You may as well listen to this and jam out before Searching for Sugar Man wins the Oscar for best documentary.
And seriously, this guy can jam like crazy.

The Mountain Goats - This Year
I am going to make it through this year, if it kills me. I am going to make it through this year, if it kills me. I am going to make it through this year, if it kills me. I am going to make it through this year, if it kills me. I am going to make it through this year, if it kills me. I am going to make it through this year, if it kills me. I am going to make it through this year, if it kills me. I am going to make it through this year, if it kills me.
I am going to make it through this week, if it kills me.

Mountain Goats - No Children
So, I guess that I have a good 2 months or so to listen to this song at home and turn it up to 11 without the neighbors hearing the lyrics and shaking their heads at the ground slowly.
Because, y’know, I don’t hope that I cut myself shaving, I don’t hope Shannon dies, and I don’t hope that we both die.

My 27th birthday is tomorrow. If you know me and want to get me something that doesn’t cost much (or anything if you know how to internet properly), please burn me a CD of Robert Johnson and Lead Belly's entire catalogs because this shit is my current jam and a half.

MU330 - Deeper
Hoodie Allen - Eighteen Cool
Thumbs up to my friends drinking whiskey
Peace out to the girls that will miss me
Middle finger to the Dudes back in high school
Cuz you peaked at eighteen cool
I’m getting the invitation to my 10 year high school reunion sometime in the next 6 months. Since everything is done via facebook now, I’m counting down the days until I can respond with just this video.
