Musings Of An Indie Kid

Me trying to introduce you guys to some of my music. I hope you enjoy it.

I felt free. And I felt lonely. And I felt scared.

So I kind of want to relaunch this thing, soon. I know I've slacked off, but ideally I would like to come back with a new layout (i.e. not generic), constant updates, and at least one new blogger, if Dave Lav wants to get in on this with me. I feel like this is a good thing for me and my interests, and I haven't been giving it the attention it deserves.

But I'll give you an update, now.

The Mountain Goats - Woke Up New Sendspace... follow link

This new album is depressing, but awesome. While there initially weren't any songs that stuck out and really grabbed my ear, the more I listen to it the more I realize just how awesome this album is. This song should represent a feeling we are all at least a little bit used to; the feeling of being fresh out of a relationship. There are things you're happy about, things you're miserable about, but for the most part you're just scared. The entire album conveys a similar feeling throughout it, but never really comes off as whiney or emo.

The Mountain Goats new album went on sale August 22nd. I have yet to actually find a physical copy for sale, but rest assured that when I do, I will purchase it. Also, on October 1st they will be playing in New York City. I advise all of you to go see them.
