don’t keep me like you have me / and don’t kiss me like you don’t

Most nights for the last few weeks, I have fallen asleep listening to this song on giant headphones. “New York” is the closing track on the new Blind Pilot album, and it couldn’t be more somnolent, redolent, or perfect.

Stream the entire new album We Are The Tide over on NPR for a limited time. My heart is glad.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
