Recommendations for the weekend
For your ears:
Centro Matic - Fort Recovery
Ben Harper - Both Sides of the Gun
Jenny Lewis - Rabbit Fur Coat: listen to Handle with Care, featuring, M. Ward, Ben Gibbard and Conor Oberst (bright eyes). I had this song on repeat so freakin' often this week. I'd contest my generation hasn't seen such a lineup on one song since "We are the World." And I think we've improved.
For your eyes:
Check out this week's installment of Death Cab for Cutie's "Directions" video series. It's good - as they all have been.
United Visual Artists - this is beautiful. Check out the work they did for one of my favorite bands, Massive Attack.
For your wallet:
This weekend will feature the first mow of spring at my humble abode. I'm taking bids from interested laborers.
