Three Mile Pilot resumed it's number one position as one of the most addictive records of the year. Did the Kelley Stoltz interview that Monday and enjoyed hearing the material live. Everything else is "same old/same old" with the exception of the re-emergence of Seven Saturdays and their relaxing, contemplative movie score-style music which I find both soothing and stimulating.
As Halloween approached, I gorged myself on the haunted, other-wordly strains of The Black Heart Procession and their first two albums. Also, they will be in town soon to open for The Books at The Fonda in December.
