halp

I am in such dire need for music, I can't even adequately explain the direness and neediness. Please, someone, for the love of humanity, give me some suggestions. If I listen to decades-old Mike Doughty in my car one more time I'm gonna chop my head off. Gah.

To illustrate: I'm wearing a blazer my mom gave me today, and it's probably a hand me down. Any ounce of with-it-ness that was once left in this decaying shell of a woman is rapidly vanishing. Go forth, music lovers! Make me cool!

I gave up on with-it-ness long ago, but The Gaslight Anthem are pretty solid for a Springsteen-esque fix. Andrew Bird has the quiet whimsy thing going on. And Bon Iver sums up the past Year of the Bearded Retreat rather well.

I can direct you to some fun psychedelic trance music...if that's your style. There's also bands like Maddness, Plain White Ts, XTC, Santana, Lou Bega...as well as some good country and Celtic stuff. Let me know if any of that sounds interesting!
