Today is turning out to be a quiet, lazy Monday to follow up my quiet, lazy weekend in bed with a cold. It's the sort of cold that lingers and pushes you back into bed just when you thought you would be all better. The past few days have consisted of tea, books, and a truly disturbing amount of time spent playing galactic gems 2... embarrassing, yes, but what else is one supposed to do when sick? The only slightly productive thing that happened was the discovery of some new music. New to me, that is.
Stornoway an indie/alt band from Britain who, apparently, have a new album out March 19th on 4AD's record label. The first song is off that release, but the songs I've mostly been listening to are from their 2010 album, Beachcomber's Windowsill.
So, if you too are looking for some enjoyably bright and catchy tunes to distract you from the fact that you can't breathe through your nose or taste anything, look no further! I'm here to help.
