Track of the Week: Wishes and Stars by Harper Simon

I don't have a television anymore. Now, I'm not one of those high and mighty television haters or anything. When I moved from El Paso to Portland I could only take what fit in my car. I had to decide between my cat or t.v. and, well, the t.v. refused to cuddle with me. So I took the cat. (And he is awesome)

Then I moved to Korea and I again do not have a t.v. So I ask people what shows I can download and watch here. I end up having huge marathons of these shows. One day, my girlfriend recommended I watch Girls, the Lena Dunham-penned, HBO drama/comedy ("dramedy?") focusing on the lives of a small group of girls in their mid-late 20s. I actually loved watching it, but what first got me hooked was the music. And from the first season soundtrack is where this week's Track of the Week comes from.

Track of the Week: High School Lover by Cayucas

I have not blogged much recently. Thank you, work and life commitments! However, I have been making a concerted effort to listen to new music. A couple of blogs have helped me out in that endeavor, as has NPR's music offerings, Tiny Desk Concerts and All Songs Considered. One of the songs I heard will be this week's track of the week. It happens to be "High School Lover" by Cayucas off their newest, and first, LP, Bigfoot .
