ODE TO THE END OF SUMMER
August 1, 2016 5:21 pm

All good things must come to an end as all people know. Be it the final climax of your favorite summer movie, the ultimate ladling of icy green summer gazpacho, or even the sunset on the last day of your final real summer vacation, time has a cruel habit of overstaying its welcome and continuing to exist well beyond our capacity to enjoy it.

Truly, we must savor these dwindling summer days. There is only ever today, always and forever, presented as future but turned present upon confrontation and then past as it disappears into memory. Hauntingly beautiful, terrifyingly predictable, waveringly consistent; the end of summer has been staring us down since the end of spring. Despite my best effort to avoid eye-contact, it is time to acknowledge its mystery and gear up for September.

So with that in mind, we’ve assembled a few songs you might enjoy to help get you there. Don’t think of it as goodbye summer but as hello autumn. It is the most thoughtful of seasons, chilly and colorful, waiting in the wings, eager to take its place as the metaphysical envelope in which we live our daily lives.

Neon Indian Emerges with New Single “Annie”
June 9, 2015 3:48 pm

After a long and agonizing two-year wait, Alan Palomo (aka Neon Indian) has impressed us all with the release of a brand new single, “Annie”. Neon Indian has been hidden under the shadows the past couple of years, with their last album release being Era Extraña, back in 2011.

The new single surely doesn’t disappoint with its synthesized keyboard, muddled guitar, and expertly layered vocals. The cheerful electro beat rings a bit more 80’s pop than our past favorites, but we’ve definitely decided “Annie” will be added to every summer playlist.

And you know what the best part is? We still have more to come with the release of the full-length album later this fall under record label Mom + Pop Music. Take a listen, and fall in love with Neon Indian all over again (or, for the first time).
