Shades are drawn...

I've been listening to Finian McKean's new alubum Shades Are Drawn. It's a truly lovely album that skips across many music genres. However, one steady image that this album conjures up for me is that of a smoky cabaret bar. Mr. McKean is center stage, guitar in hand, singing folky songs of love and sadness.

Odds and ends...
According to Pitchfork, Pedro the Lion is no more. Dave Bazan and TW Walsh are splitting; however, Bazan will continue to release music... just no longer as Pedro. I'm a little sad about this since I've been waiting and waiting for Pedro the Lion to release new music. I guess I'll settle for the old.
