Oh readers. I am sorry. It has been a shameful 12 days since I’ve last posted. I assume you’ve just been sitting in front of your computer during that time, constantly refreshing my page in hopes that a new post would come, and I have failed you.
However. I have a fantastic reason for being gone for so long. I happen to live in Texas, where the Republicans have been trying to ram through a crazy restrictive anti-abortion bill during a special session. That is, until the women and men of Texas showed up to shut that down. So I’ve been spending a good chunk of my time down at the Capitol, and blog posting became a casualty of that.
Rick Perry has called another special session, so posting might be sporatic for the next few weeks as well, but I’ll try my best. And today I have a newly released track from one of my favorites, jj.
We’ve all been waiting for a new album from the band since 2010′s jj n° 3, but instead the band has been releasing singles and EPs. Word on the street, though, is that this newest track is from their upcoming album V. Sadly, no word on release dates yet, so we’ll keep and eye on that.
In the meantime, you can stream ”fågelsången” below, grab the mp3 on their site, and think about how much you wish English had cool accents on its letters like that:
Lyric to Consider: heaven’s got a place for me and you.
