1. Fleet Foxes is on SNL on January 17th. If you watch the show keep an eye open for them since they are the best.
2. I bought Pitchfork500: From Punk to Present which is a look at 500 important songs since 1977. Its a good read so far. It has also inspired me to take on the ambitious goal of creating a list of the best songs/albums of the 2000s next January.
3. Deerhunter has finally clicked for me this past week. I think putting the headphones on and listening to them on the way to school has helped.
