Just a few notes about my life in music, recently

The main place that I listen to music is while I'm on the computer and, well, my sound driver is busted. Something's wrong with the inner workings that makes everything sound like crap, and skip, and slow down. So, unfortunately, I've listened to less new music than I wanted to this summer.

Luckily, for my birthday last week I received a brand new pair of Sennheiser over ear headphones, which make music sound absolutely glorious. Needless to say, I've been catching up on summer releases in a proper manner, starting with Stay Positive, of course.

So, despite all of these occurrences, I think that I owe my blog a few decent posts, and I'll certainly be getting to them when I get back to school. WAIH has a stack of just about 300 CDs waiting for my anxious ears. Expect posts in the coming weeks of a least first impressions of the recent releases from The Hold Steady, Emilyn Brodsky, Conor Oberst, The Walkmen, Randy Newman, Tilly and the Wall, The Ting Tings, and Fleet Foxes. And those are just the ones I'd really like to review. So, make sure I keep my word on this one. There's a whole list of CDs I'd like to get around to listening to thoroughly and writing about, but we'll see.

I should also write about the shows I've gone to in the past two weeks. Perhaps I'll sit here and blog deep into the night on the eve before moving back to college.

Once I'm back, you'll be able to catch my radio show, Ginger Ale & Apathy THREE times a week. Mondays 2-3pm, Wednesdays & Fridays 6-7pm. / 90.3FM ... I'm looking at setting up some in-studio interviews and guest DJs both in real life and via Skype! It'll be a fun semester. I'll also be writing for The Racquette again, and as usual I'll post any of my articles directly on this blog.

Stay tuned!
