Beauty for a Dreary Day


SYNOPSIS In which your Uncle LD sifts through his perilously over-heaped desk, listens to lots of shit and then chooses some faves to post for your listening pleasure (and, of course, as a way to postpone going to the gym…). Palomar (the band) and William Fitzsimmons are lauded, friend John Ashfield’s arty efforts are applauded, and a wee trip down memory lane is undertaken via repeated bursts of Silicon Teens, Love and others.

NEXT WEEK: (Ersatz) Spring! Awakening! Maybe!
