Cold out there this weekend! Yesterday’s bike ride in single digits for 20 miles on snow & ice was one of my toughest ones yet! But, with cold comes productivity and my oh my how productive it was! A little glance & a click on the woman in a mask on your right will give you a hint…..
More on that a different day, right now my mind is stuck in the cold ass fall & winter we’ve been having — OMG, the republicans were so right about that no-global-warming thing they talked about in last year’s snowpocalypse.
SIDE NOTE: Dear (kill all) humans. I keep hearing the phrase snowpocalypse and snowmaggedon this year. But here’s the thing, you already used it for last year’s snow — remember Washington DC? Or did it’s mass annihilation also result in it wiping out of your mind?? — so, you know, you can’t use it again. If you must, at least insure to label it so that it’s regional specific, like that shitty CSI show… SNOWPOCALYPSE: NEW YORK! Anyways, moving on..
Where was we? Ah, got my mind on my winter and my winter on my mind. And what dreamy album has been serenading me this winter? I mean, like, since the first cold snap bitch-slapped me on a chilly November bike ride??
Yep, Beat Radio’s Golden Age. It’s got this dreamy electro-rock that just kinda pulls you out of the cold, no, that’s not right… it kinda picks you up and floats you through the cold. Suddenly, as you move through the freezing air with a steady gait or cadence, it feels fresh on your face, like it’s where you belong. Not sure if I can truly describe what I’m talking about. But instead of battling the cold, you kinda become one with it. Does that make any sense?
No matter and (ir)regardless, it’s one sweet album by a wonderful band — who, by the way, are great to hang out with on twitter.
Stream the whole thing via Bandcamp below, love it, then go buy it.
