Album of My Summer
This is the album of my summer, Strange Trails, and I wish I could write the words to explain how important it is. This is what I have listened to while running over a hundred and fifty miles. This is what I am hauling water buckets, bales, and driving to. This is the album I have written my best words to and fascinated about things I would never dare write about. It is a crime I don't own it on vinyl, but recreational spending is on hold. The whole album is available to listen to above, and song by song on Youtube. If you love rock, Elvis, over thinking, indie rock, and force and hope - listen to it. It is meant to be listened to as one thing. Every song blends perfectly into the next. It is exhilarating in it's composition. It is fun, sexy, dark, hopeful, and when you are done listening you feel stronger.
Guys, if you stopped caring about new music because of children, work, life - start again. Listen to this. Get it on iTunes or on CD for your car. Listen to it and soak. You can work out, eat well, dream, meditate, and do anything else to improve but nothing is as influential and invigorating as good music you never heard before.
