This post is going up as is for a few reasons. First of all, it’s beautiful outside at the University of Kentucky! Honestly, it’s about time! Also, I’ve got to start getting my stuff ready for a WRFL interview that I’ve got in a couple hours. I’ve got to bring my “A game” as the kids say. Oh, and this is also a preview for something I’ll be featuring tomorrow. Hopefully it’ll put a spring in your step.
MP3: Of Montreal – Springtime Is The Season
When I received it in the mail yesterday, I realized something: I hadn’t heard Cherry Peel in forever. That, coupled with our excellent weather, is the reason for this tune. Very rarely will you find Kevin composing such a simple song, and it’s really a shame. Yes, Of Montreal really shine with their layered approach, but these minimal compositions are darlings as well.
Speaking of Of Montreal, they also have a load of new tour dates up, including one in Kentucky!
