Tomorrow, Toby Joe, Gerry and I are going to see My Morning Jacket at Webster Hall. I’m going to try and talk them into carving pumpkins as well. Though, that might have to wait until this weekend. The new My Morning Jacket CD called Z is really amazing. Everyone should run out and buy it today. On Thursday, we are going to see Death Cab for Cutie at the Hammerstein Ballroom. That CD is also pretty amazing, although, there is one song I could do without. The one called “Someday You Will Be Loved” makes me feel very uncomfortable. “Uncomfortable” as in an someone unwelcome touched a no-no spot. I forward it every time it comes on.
Later this month and on Halloween, The Mountain Goats are playing. I can’t seem to get enough of this guy even thought he made me cry this morning on the L Train. And that wasn’t the first time, nor will it be the last. For those unfamiliar with his music, he tends to sing about his stepfather who was not only a drunk but extremely abusive. The CD is, at times, is downright impossible to listen to. But I love it, all the same.
I’m curious. What is it you’re listening to? What was the last song you heard?
