Happy Birthday, Bill (born September 21, 1950)
you’re my god.
quickly ascending my ranks of top house trax.

Chris Staples “Hold Onto Something”
from American Soft (via Barsuk Records, 2014)
Really delighted that one of my all-time favorite singer-songwriters is receiving more widespread recognition. Chris has been quietly chipping away at crafting a warm and inviting blend of subtle folk and sleepy indie rock for going on twenty years now, ever since his earliest days as frontman for twothirtyeight. His solo output (especially his records as Discover America) mean so very much to me as they were essential listening over the course of my junior high and high school years. Blackest Hair Bluest Eyes, Psychology, Badlands, Future Paths, and now American Soft – the guy’s been on a roll.
i so wanna be in scotland right now.
my blood runs thick with subway
tejada knocks dis one clear outta the fuckin park.
fave rmx of twentyfourteen so far.
