Slow and fuzzy

I really do feel like this crappy photo looks at the moment. To stave off - or more probably wallow in - post-Indietracks blues I've taken to listening to really downbeat for the last few days. Stuff like Galaxie 500 and Slowdive and Beulah's more maudlin moments. And you can't beat Beulah's more maudlin moments.

This got me thinking about For Stars, a now defunct band from San Francisco who put a quite wonderful record out on the Shifty Disco singles club in March 2001. It's still one of my most played records when I'm feeling all fuzzy like this. Nice, simple clarity.

Also, can you believe it's Friday tomorrow? I can't...
