My First Days on My First Days on Junk. . .


. . . have been quite glorious. I don't usually say things like this to kids your age, but it must be said: These Burlington, Vermonters are pushing one of the best albums of the year, so far as yo soy concerned. Absolute shoegaze/psych/J&M Chain-style heaven. I first heard "Try Hard" at 5 Acts, bought almost the entire LP here (I'm a singles guy, as you may have noticed, so copping 8 of 13 songs on an album almost lacks precedent), followed Casey'n'Michelle's MML link to MFDoJ' s MySpace page, wrote 'em, and got MFDoJer Steve Williams' generous permission to "post a few songs" . . . "(a)s long as you don't post the whole record. . ." (exact quotes, lifted from the email). Oh, Steve, Steve, Steve, you don't know how that did tempt me. Sheer pleasant agony it was trying to figure which three (painfully self-imposed limit) to do. The first one's a no-brainer (convenient for me), a surefire hypnotic pinner. The others follow suit. Plus it all reminds me of the blissful life aquatic back in Shanghai harbour. (Me love metaphor mix, yum, smack.)


P.S.: I'll probably soon regret the inane (mostly honest) intro, so if it's no longer here, that's why.
