2019: March 27th - New Music from The National

While even after multiple attempts, I really never developed a taste for The National's much-lauded 2017 album Sleep Well Beast, I am such an enormous fan of 2010's High Violet that I give everything they do a chance. Admittedly, You Had Your Soul With You probably dropped a while ago, so I'm posting it here well after the fact, but I've been careful about getting off on the wrong foot with I Am Easy to Find, the band's forthcoming album on 4AD. With some bands, pre-album release singles can create false expectations for the overall tone of the album. Despite this, something forced my hand this morning, and now I am very intrigued about the full album, which you can pre-order HERE.


I've been cleaning a lot of music out of my iTunes to make room on my Mac Book, and this morning I was super freaked out to find I can no longer find my Twin Peaks Music Archive tracks. For those of you who remember this, roughly eight years ago, David Lynch released a massive archive of every music track used in the original show. This included all incidental tracks, and every variation of every track. I'm not entirely sure how I would have deleted these, and there's a chance I have it backed up on a secondary drive somewhere (please please please), but until then, I'm sweating it a little bit. Here's a taste of what I was looking for this morning:
