A song for your morning

I'm getting back into Pandora. If you don't know it, it is an online music service where you can create music stations based on bands you already like. The created stations serve all up all sorts of delightful songs of which you are likely to be unaware.

I have a few stations in place already (Drive By Truckers, Sleater Kinney, Wolf Parade, Franz Ferdinand and so on) but I recently created a Butterglory station. If you don't know the band, they were a mid-90s Kansas band that people thought sounded a bit too much like Pavement (That's a problem?!!) Check this video, complete with LARP and a hot drummer. Anyway Butterglory is a great underrated band, so just the thing for a Pandora station.

Today, Big Dipper came up on the station. Yet another band I missed back in the day. This late 80s indie rock band reminds me of the Pixies, probably due to the Boston connection and weird lyrics. Here is Lunar Module, a hooktastic treat for you.
