I imagine that however long this blog exists, this record will make an appearance in the heart of the Fall each year. This LP, from another jaunt with my dad to the Record World in Seaview Square Mall (a store I'd ultimately work in, actually) typifies what I was referencing earlier in the week--that subconscious seasonal soundtrack.
In my mind, the trees shed their leaves to "Oblivious" just as it was when this, "airy yet somehow lush (LP) filled with lovely melodies and thoughtful, impressionistic lyrics" (as Trouser Press noted) made its imprint for the first time. From "We Could Send Letters" to now "We Could Send Emails," its timelessness is near impenetrable.
...AND will outlive anything currently on the front pages of both Pitchfork and Stereogum this morning. (Sorry - couldn't resist..!)
