Today’s Freestyle Friday presents grab bag of items with no commonality except that they grabbed my attention for some reason or other – which isn’t hard as I am very distractable…squirrel!
First up is Pokey LaFarge – this guy is great. Listening to him is like going back in time, but rather than being simply nostalgic, LaFarge’s performances feel modern somehow, I think it’s because of his apparent authenticity. I’m going to see him tonight so – woo hoo! A night on the town for me and the missus. For you all with Spotify. here’s a link to the latest album Middle of Everywhere.
You know those decals that people put on the mini-van that represent all the members of the family (including pets)? I never thought I’d ever get those – until I found the zombie family decals!
So you thought when you were listening to Feist, Radiohead and Wilco that you were listening to indie, didn’t you?

Read this article, Has Indie Become Adult Contemporary, posted on The Record at NPR’s site. Very interesting.
