Things I like right now:
- Sitting on the deck, listening to militant hip hop in 80 degree weather.
- Having a new haircut.
- The Constantines, my favorite new Canadian garage-guitar rock band that sounds like early Replacements.
- The new Calexico. It’s different, and not the sprawling genre-defying epic we’re used to with a new Calexico album. But it’s good. It has good songs. Nice songs. I was disappointed at first, but now I love it. They haven’t sold their soul. Just leased it out for bit.
- Sufjan Stevens, the Michigan one. I’ve never loved Christian rock more. So beautiful.
- Rap music. Dead Prez, Immortal Technique, The Coup, Old Roots.
