been a while old friend...




So this summer so far has been...memorable.
A lot has happened.

I'm still standing. (barely)
Music doesn't sound too sweet these days but home-grown Canadians, Junior Boys, have managed to find my eardrums, pick them up out of the darkness and send them in a new, positive and resolved direction.

I'll just say that I love you (blog) and I promise to never do this (not write) again.

...so Junior Boys, a relatively new-ish album (Begone Dull Care) that recently caught my attention at a friends dinner party. I think we had rented plates...at least I hope we did.
After a few glasses of Penfolds the low, constant pulsation of Parallel Lines hummed its way through the conversation and into my head.
Think Erasure, but slower, sexier and less churchy.
