Good weather does strange things to people. I’ve been tending to an office-wide infestation of ladybugs; Kim’s been eating lunch out of ice cream containers; Phil’s been playing genuinely pleasant music on the stereo. It’s all too weird; however grateful I am for the chance to wear my one pair of shorts, I’d like it to be cold again so we can all go back to our characteristic miseries. Thanks in advance.

Here’s the music:

New:

There’s time still to talk about other things, like how Aidan Moffat’s got some new pals to grumble with, or how the Magic Numbers are still the nicest people on earth, or how Fruits de Mer are celebrating ten years of not shutting up. Plus this Malena Zavala record, my dudes!

Reissues:

The after party.
