Are you listening?

another new music curator at work

A tune I love that DN loves, too: The National's cover of The Philistines Jr.’s "Twenty Miles to NH Part 2," arguably better than the original and part of the compilation album "If a Lot of Bands Play in the Woods...", which features such lovelies as Jonsi (of Sigur Ros), Tapes n’ Tapes, Tokyo Police Club, Mice Parade, Mates of State, Guster, Frightened Rabbit, Dazzled Kid (AKA Tjeerd Bomhof) and so on. It's a companion to The Philistines Jr.'s own October release, "If a Band Plays in the Woods..." Listen to more of the remixes over at Pitchfork.

Your own self

"There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of
improving, and that's your own self." ~ Aldous Huxley
