Take Me Home

Oh, I’m rubbish at this staying up-to-date and posting stuff when it comes out and all that malarky. I’m finding, a year into doing this blog, that I’m much better at posting stuff ages after everyone else has done. So here, to round off the month, is a song that I first heard over six months ago (pre-release!) and didn’t post then. Now my son keeps playing it, the wife keeps going on about how much she loves it, so I present to you: Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros “Home”.

Might As Well Jump

A fine, fine song it is too. How can you not love its mariachi-inflected horns, its cheery singalong chorus, and Rawhide-style whipcracks? In fact, the song is cheerily earworming its way round my skull this very second. Thanks, avuncular but faintly ominous beardy chap.

I also present, in all its glory, a remixed version by the AA1.

They are on tour, too, you know.

Right, off now. Really must try and post the Pitchfork 500 post tomorrow. Is that a pig flying by?
