i was just thinking

about how much ive been listening to Jens Lekman lately; ive been groovesharking his cover of Paul Simons "You can Call Me Al" daily and was going to mention him in, "currently listening..." but, apparently he has some new material on the way and here is a look at a new track. its been three years since the last record, stoked.

oh yeah, im going to MTL this weekend, more on that later . . .

this is not a fashion blog:

cept sometimes it is now

Mr. Hares summer line of carefully designed shoes are spotless and un-fucking real. i just had a conversation last week with my friend paterson about how men pay more considerable attention to detail. this is the pinnacle of almost little to no detail, cept not really. my favourite, the fela, are constructed of one piece of some exotic vachetta leather.


the world says: evan, go to school, get a good job
i says: have you heard the new arcade fire?

laying it down

So a friend of a friend of a friend hooked us up with a student at OIART here in London for some recording time. we had four hours, and got all the drums tracked for three songs. mat was on fire, he did the first song (and probably the most complicated) done in the first take. i believe that was a good omen, because i laid down all my bass tracks at the guys home studio later that night. just in time for the Black Mountain show at Call The Office. Probably one of the best days of my summer so far,

recording = tediousness + funny             recording = fun + beer = just fun

currently listening too . . . TALLEST MAN ON EARTH - probably one of the greatest young songwriters ive come across in a long time.
