Pitchfork hasn’t deigned to review Regina Spektor’s latest album yet, but I did! Please click here for my review if you are interested.
Y’all – it’s Friday and I am getting on a plane for Italy tomorrow. I feel so behind (on life, Sister Wendy, and the like) and always have a bit of a freak out before travelling–it’s really appealing and fun for my husband. Bahhhhhh! Hopefully I’ll be collecting some good material for you next week in Florence (if not posting a tremendous amount) so be sure to sign up for email notifications or follow the blog if you haven’t already done so. Pour some sugar on me, people!
Sad songs make me happy, so I’ve compiled a bit of a melancholy playlist for you below, tangentially inspired by Remember Us to Life.
