WHEN HOME ISN'T

Last August, I posted an alternating-track mix I'd compiled with a cyber-friend of mine. That one took some 15 months to complete, but it turned out very well (imo).

Well, we've gone and done it again. This time, it only took us about 4 months to finish the mix, and I think the results are just as promising as the last time around. But I'll let you judge for yourselves....

TUPELO HONEYS

TUPELO HONEYS on MySPACE.

[In compiling my Best Albums of 2008 some weeks ago, I was surprised to find that Sweden's TUPELO HONEYS seemed insistent on claiming the top spot. After a while, I sort of started to like the idea. It was, after all, a solid indie-pop album. Male-female vocals. Melodies & hooks aplenty. Fine, then. Count me in. That is, until I realized that their album actually came out in 2007. And this is the way that life has of shattering our dreams and waylaying our best-laid plans.]
