We’re still feeling mellow here on the microcosm, which may not be a bad thing. It kinds of equalizes all the non-mellow harshness floating around in some zones.
Have you heard of The Decemberists? Until this year, I had not despite the fact that they’ve been recording since 2001, but any group that has a song with lyrics that include “a panoply of song” is definitely worth listening to at least once, if not a lot. The more I listened, the more I loved.
A barony of ivy in the trees
Expanding out its empire by degrees
And all the branches burst abloom
In the boom
Heaven sent this cardinal maroon
