austra : home (stream)

Live on Radio K: Kurt Vile - "Wakin On A Pretty Daze" from Radio K on Vimeo.

  Live on Radio K: Kurt Vile - "Never Run Away" from Radio K on Vimeo.
nice article on the somewhat tired topic of the prevalence of auto-tune in music today, with a short but  interesting / disturbing aside about the human ear becoming less able to fall in love with "unique"vocal takes and styles (e.g. dylan, hendrix, mangum, etc.). read it here.

a meaty space-folk jam from akron/family's forthcoming lp, until the morning.
