Every once in a while I reach the point where I become totally overwhelmed by the amount of amazingly good music that's available. I feel as though I'm re-discovering the wonder of rock n' roll all over again. But I also feel like there is absolutely no way to keep up with it all either. And then I feel like there is no way to keep up with it all so why even bother trying… And then I remember… it's the trying that makes up a small, but important part of who I am. I know it sounds crazy, but I don't think I could stop listening to music any easier than I could stop eating… Even when it's not in my ears… it's in my head. And when I close my eyes and see a backyard full of my friends and neighbors laughing and dancing and sweating to the sweet, soulful sounds of a saxophone, the solar plexus pounding thump of a bass guitar, the syncopated snap of a snare drum, crunching keyboard notes, punching trumpet blasts, and the funky warble of wah-wah guitar… it's in my heart. And it does my heart good. I'm going to try and spend most of this month presenting new, and brand new music. New from some old favorites who aren't done yet, and may, in fact, just be getting started. And brand new from some bands you may not have heard from ever before. But first, before I attempt to coral the onslaught of new tunes, and in keeping with the spirit of the season, the Happy Medium Song of the Day is “T-Shirt Weather” by The Lucksmiths.
