But nobody’s getting through

Oh Arts & Crafts, you damn Canadians, you’ve won me over again…. sorry for not getting the next member vinyl rip up yet, my dear friends, I was hit with a nasty stomach bug that wiped me out Tuesday evening and a good portion of Wednesday. Wednesday night was spent snuggling with my baby watching, a little TLC is always good for what ails ya, and now, though I’m feeling 98% better, work is kicking my ass!


One thing soothing my aching tummy was yet another gem from the aforementioned (Ooo… big word, never used that in a sentence before, I think! All that Scrabble’s paying off, eh?) Arts & Crafts label from the Great White North, this time in the name of Jason Collett’s latest beauty Here’s To Being There.

It’s got this 70’s AM meets old-timey vibe that was a double portion of Pepto-Bismal for my ailment. Thanks Mr. Collett, yet another Broken Social Scenester has won my ass over…..

Your turn to enjoy, and don’t worry, the next member vinyl rip is nearly up! So be on the look out soon.

Jason Collett – Nothing To Lose

Burned out fireworks
smoking in the pouring rain
sittin’ on a black leather couch
where no one remembers your name
drunk in the sunk-in living room
everybody’s talking long distance
but nobody’s getting through

Jason Collett – No Redemption Song
Jason Collett – Out Of Time
Jason Collett – Roll On Oblivian
Jason Collett – Through The Night These

Go show this Canuck all your love here, here, & here now!

    As Kevin Drew wears Dinosaur Jr. on his sleeve and Feist oft channels Nina Simone, Jason Collett begets dad rock.

    While I find the efforts of Drew and Feist endearing to me, I just find Collett’s material rather boring and downright watery. It’s another example of how the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

    Maybe it was the stomach virus… maybe it’s that I’m a dad… either way, this one got stuck in my head and wouldn’t leave….

    Speaking of BSS, when they due for a new one???
