Happy New Year, Citizens.
This song came out in the summer of 2008, and for me it definitely captured a feeling of that fall and into the start of 2009; a feeling that feels pretty far away here coming from the end of 2016, but my hope and wish is for everyone here to catch a little bit of that feeling again in the new year.
FTLT (the citizen that alerted the citizenry to the likes of Alabama Shakes and Courtney Barnett long before everyone else figured it out, who also used to be a DJ, contributor, and frequent commenter as well as being known as somewhat of a basketball enthusiast (in the case that anyone is unfamiliar)) causally dropped a mention in a FMD a little bit back. I've learned to listen when the hitman does so.
A collaboration between the lead singer of The Walkmen and one of the main cogs of Vampire Weekend, their album is a whirling plunge through genres, eras, and textures, but all with a distinctly original sound that I hope they explore on another album or two. Anyway, this song has been between lowkey to rock-climber's grip stuck in my head for the past few weeks now.
While the normal guys sleep in I thought I would provide a hopeful thought for this afternoon.
Figured I might as well try to annoy freealonzo one more time this year. Thanks to the VJs and the Citzenry for having me again.
I saw these guys last night along with the New Pornographers. I will comment on how wonderful the show was in LTE form when I sober up a bit.
