The sun has returned to us this week, and now that it is my day off, I couldn’t be more glad of that fact. The sun is back. The warmth and joy of Spring is back. The hint of Summer is back. Our good moods are back, and our motivations, and faith in our abilities to succeed are all back back back back back. And Radiohead’s new album has arrived!!!! I am overjoyed to have my first listen of “A Moon Shaped Pool,” at some point this day, and I’m sure it will not disappoint. My brief dive into it last night proved that it does have more to offer than “King Of Limbs, ” which was a great album, don’t get me wrong, but I like that the new album is a concept album that’s actually focused more on a legit concept than the previous endeavor. But regardless, it will be a delight to the ears I am sure.
Only a couple short weeks till Boston Calling VII, and I am pumped up about that for sure. Sia, Disclosure, City And Color, Borns, The Front Bottoms, Miike Snow, Odesza, and many others are going to be awesome I am sure. Boston Calling has never disappointed in variety of artists and styles represented, and has also hardly disappointed in quality of performers and performances, though certainly Brand New left much to be desired. But the postives of the experience outweigh the negatives. We fell in love with bands and artists we wouldn’t have known otherwise, and saw way more artists that we already loved, that we probably wouldn’t have the opportunity without the festival that kicks off the summer in the best possible way. The line-up this time is much less known to me, to be pleasantly surprised is also a pleasant surprise.
Well today folks, think Spring, and dream Summer. Take a walk, throw a disc, jam out to some good tunes, open your windows, fling open your doors, and throw out your arms to the gift that is today, and run with it. I don’t care if you have work or not, you do get out of work at some point right? Get out and see that big beautiful place we call the world.
I know I’m telling you this from my apartment floor on a computer screen, but once I am done dropping these words in front of your faces, I am going outside myself. So there!
