DOG DAY - Happiness (via cutofftail)
Currently, immensely enjoying.
All by himself, Tony Dekker – lead singer and songwriter for Canada’s Great Lake Swimmers – gives a delicate, haunting performance. Off “Lost Channels”.
A daily image. A song with each.
It just sounded fantastic coming out of your Technics 1200s, the needle’s a bit damaged and the speakers are kind of blowin’ up and you’ve had little bit too much to drink and some twit is asking for The Pogues again so you just whack on, like some Warp record really loud and just clear the dance floor. But you were haven’ the best time.
I am particularly glad to no longer be asked when the Beatles are coming to iTunes
— Ringo Starr
Serendipitously ran across these guys during this year’s Make Music Pasadena music fest and couldn’t stop listening to their Bandcamp page for a few weeks straight.
—MacArthur BART piano

Update: This was last posted waaaaayyyy back on November 12th, 2010. I like re-upping this post every once in awhile. It was a beautiful moment: the music is just awesome, I haven’t experienced anything like it down here in SoCal, and so it contributes to my pining for the Bay Area.
Sitting out on the concrete one day, on the approach to the MacArthur BART station, an upright piano and its player. This was no ordinary, throw-a-dollar-in-my-ratty-guitar-case sort of busker.
