My Silver Lining

My latest music obsession. This song and a few others on First Aid Kit‘s recent album Stay Gold.

I don’t want to wait anymore I’m tired of looking for answers
Take me some place where there’s music and there’s laughter
I don’t know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow
Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I’ve got to go
There’s no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on
And you’ve just gotta keep on keeping on

Down by the River

Here’s a sweet song by Milky Chance called Down by the River. I’m really digging it. In other unrelated news, running has taken a back seat as of late. The plague of plantar fasciitis has consumed my right foot. It sucks so bad. I just want to run without limping and pain in every single step. To the bike I must go! Freedom exists on two wheels.


I’ve long been a fan of Phosphorescent. Most recently, I can’t stop listening to the album Muchacho. It’s absolutely terrific. They released a song from this album for record store day called Song for Zula, which was the only vinyl I picked up that day (besides the Tina Turner album I got for a BUCK!) The song I’m picking for today’s blog post is called The Quotidian Beasts and it is really, really, really good. I just want to crank it.
