Here’s some links for the February doldrums… At least the Olympics are providing me with my quadrennial fix for short track speed skating.
Vans in California. Weirdly beautiful.
Frightened Rabbit has a new album out, The Winter of Mixed Drinks. As my friends know, Scottish accents are a weakness of mine, but FR also has a great rock sound…The Killers meets Arcade Fire meets…Sean Connery?

Yeah, this song is just slightly longer than what I thought was the longest song ever, “American Pie.”
Definitely on board with simplifying.
