Chelsea Wolfe’s Sunstorm

Things I did today: slept in til noon. Ate an english muffin with a bit of egg. Played a song I wrote on the guitar. Listened to a Talking Heads record. Took a long hot bath. Browsed some music on the internet. Whipped up a batch of ginger cookies without eating 97% of the batter like usual.

Now, for your listening pleasure… here’s some music for Sunday afternoon daydreaming by Californian everywoman Chelsea Wolfe.

Get Stroked- Stereogum Pays Tribute to This is It with a Collection of Covers

Stereogum has released an album of covers to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Is This It.  You can download the compilation here with covers from bands like Peter, Bjorn & John, Wise Blood, and The Morning Benders.  Is This It is an album that holds a lot of nostalgia for me.  I remember the first time I heard Hard to Explain and pressing record after the intro, not even caring that I was cutting into the mixed tape already in the boombox. Even though the covers don’t compare to my sentiment with the originals, this is still a fun listen for me.
