La, la and more la
I can't seem to stop listening to Up From the Below, the debut album from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, in particular the sixth track "Home." The version that wound up on the final release is tighter than the demo version linked above but I think it's still worth a listen, if you're curious. It's a swell duet and a downright neat soundtrack for a road trip to a cider mill on an autumn day. Oregon has cider mills somewhere, right? Anyway, here's hoping the song doesn't wind up in a Prius commercial.
The album delves a bit too far into Polyphonic Spree territory but it's just the sort of '60s throwback ear candy that can serve as an antidote for a day of blustery, gray weather like the one we had in Portland today.
