If you like indie music, especially stuff you may not have ever heard before, you might be interested in a Tumblr I’ve been checking out for a while called The Sound and the Furry. It’s a blog that features pretty cool music, with the added feature that one or more of the musicians tend toward the scruffy side of appearances. Right now it’s featuring the host’s top fifteen albums of 2011. I must admit the only two acts I’ve ever heard anything from are Dan Mangan (#11) and The Decemberists (#12), but if the list includes them then I’ll look forward to listening to the others.
I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
