Also, I listened to The Kooks "Inside In/Inside Out" album last night. It felt like Spring 2007 all over again! I miss when music didn't sound like Alt-J. No offense if that's your thing!
Over Christmas break, I ran into Rocky, and he told me the mixed CD I made him in high school changed his musical tastes for the next decade of his life. That is so awesome, and I can only think of the dozens of CDs friends made for me in passing that did the same exact thing.
