Motel Motel

This song by NYC's Motel Motel makes me happy. It is fair to say that almost every new band I like these days is from Brooklyn or Montreal. Must expand these horizons.

P.S. Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is releasing a solo record in October and The Fruit Bats' new title track "The Ruminant Band" (album out in August) also sounds delightful; a little reminiscent of good (read: early) Fleetwood Mac.

I hate babies

...and picketing utopian CUPE employees!

That being said, I still enjoy these fantastical photographs by Julie Blackmon.
