Not Quite Bismarck: Iron & Wine on KCRW

I'm not sure what's going on with Sam Beam, aka Iron & Wine, these days. I do recall Pitchfork's less-than-enthusiastic description of his gig at Lollapalooza, and there's that collaboration with Calexico and a smattering of iTunes exclusives. I've stated a disclaimer that I'm not particularly into singer-songwriters, but I have found what I've heard of Our Endless Numbered Days soothing. Of course, his "Such Great Heights" cover is also abundant indie cred.

Here's Sam on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic, recorded on December 6th, 2002.

CMJ madness kicks off soon!

EZArchive's relocation is wreaking havoc in the blogosphere. Sorry, guys.

The end of Daylights Savings Time is a nice consolation for the recent frigid weather.

Speaking of cold, I was very pleased to witness the Rangers' 7-3 rout of the Coyotes over the weekend. It's a start.
