Hey, everyone! Back from France and Luxembourg, and ready to get down to action. Lots of stuff piling up in the mailbag, and lots more in the semi-permanent, “temporary” bookmarks folder… So, let’s get down to business. Here are some of the news stories that I’m about to get all Lewis Black on:
It’s been a scary, busy month of dissertation drafting (due any day now!), and so I’ve been a bit remiss in updating this site. Ok, fine, entirely remiss. And this isn’t really so much of a post, as it is a postcard… But one of the things that makes it all more bearable is the new She & Him album Volume Two. We’ve had a quick look at it on this site before, and you can still visit that post for a free download of “In the Sun.” But for now, and until its release on March 23rd, you can hear the whole thing courtesy of NPR. And of course, after the cut. Enjoy!
She & Him stopped by the BBC’s Radio 6 for an interview and performance of two songs – “Thieves” and “Gonna Get Along Without You Now” – from Volume Two (Out Mar. 23rd on Merge). You can hear the BBC session by going here and skipping ahead to 1 hour, 41 minutes. For some more details on the record, you can visit Stereogum.
From the sound of things, fans of the first record (which, it seems, is just about everyone) will love what’s in store for them. For those of you in a rush, visit Stereogum to hear “Thieves” right now. You can find “In the Sun” below for your listening and downloading pleasure…
