Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Very cool - their new album is really good. I'm a little amazed at how quickly and masterfully they jumped from indie to what seems like mainstream, too. Not saying that's a bad thing or good thing, I've just rarely if ever seen it done so swiftly. It's actually a bit impressive.

also, this is incredible. The Roots just nail the sound. Kozelek with the Roots on Jimmy Kimmel doing "mistress". I wish sometimes he'd put down the Segovia records and just go electric again.

Nick Drake's mom. They recently released a collection of her home recorded songs. It's amazing.

Hmm, I need to investigate this band. Never heard of them before. I like the trap drum stabs thrown in for extra fun.

Ben Harper's collaboration with Charlie Musselwhite is one of the best things I've heard in a long time.

Awesome. Saw Ben Harper live a few times. One of those artists that sounds even better live than on record.
