Just a programming note...

For the handful of folks who come here regularly, I just wanted to (again) address the sad state of this place lately. Truth is, I just can't maintain the pace anymore. It'll probably be about as steady as its been from here on out, with the exception being December for the year end festivities and live reviews. As always, I reserve the right to surge back with a vengeance. But I consider it unlikely at this point, based on all I have going on right now. Recurring features will just have to fall by the wayside, sad to say. These real-life obligations are good things, mind you. For instance, I'm actually recording my own album now, a long-time goal I finally decided to invest in.  

Anyway, it's stupid that I'm even writing this, because really, it's just a crummy little blog I started on a lark. But I'm kinda proud of where it's come, and I hate for it to fall into dereliction like so many seem to. Thanks for everyone's support throughout our five years, and I'll continue to do the best I can to maintain some kind of vivacity around here.

In the interest of incorporating a bit of music: two great recent albums I'd recommend are Feist's Metals and Megafaun's self-titled release. Actually, Metals may not be released quite yet. But it's streaming on her site, so check that one out. Her incredible voice makes the throngs of ubiquitous pixie-throated indie chicks look so silly by comparison.

Oh, and by the way, this is the 100th post of the year. Something bittersweet about that...

Thanks dudes,
G

George, I'm so sad that I'm just now really checking your blog regularly (though I readily admit that I'm late on this), and now it's coming to an end, kind of! I guess I'll just have to keep getting your music opinions through Sarah...

George,

Good luck on your album recording! Love to hear how that turns out.

I fully hope and expect an Ashes & Fire full review when it comes out!
(Please) :)

Write about your recording process... I know it'd be interesting to me at the very least.
