The Mid-Summer Slackfest Continues...
You know that's a true statement, right? If it's not the actual work of making all the things that are supposed to happen on a vacation happen, it's all the work involved in making sure everything you normally keep tabs on every day doesn't collapse during the few days you're away. (Or fending off the notion that it's capable of doing that.)
But hey, it's a vacation, and so off I go. But in the meantime, there's a plethora of new music I've already picked for the first update to go up when I go back into "work" mode.
Firstly, the new Duels album, The Bright Lights And What I Should Have Learned, is an awful lot of fun, and it gives me great delight to say that it's a good listen from top to bottom. You've gotta believe there's an altar in their tour bus where they regularly make sacrifices before the graven image of Mick Ronson - and for me, that's a feature.
New Pigeon Detectives and Yes Boss have found their way into my inbox as well, and it turns out I jumped the gun when I started playing Soundpool way back when, so I'll just have to play some more.
So let that whet your appetite a bit, and in the meantime, kick back with a bit of the ol' Altrok Radio blasting out of the wireless speakers near the inflatable pool for a while, hmm?
