It’s been a rough go around here lately. The temperature in the Twin Cities has been a brittle -10F for about a week with temps reaching at least ten degrees colder than that a couple times. Today the weather has turned to a warmer shade but with freezing fog for balance. On top of the notable cold (the coldest air mass to come through the state since ’96) kiddo has been sick with a combination of a 24 hour stomach bug and strep throat. I’ll spare you the details on the illness. He is on the mend and that is what matters.
“The Holidays”, as they are collectively known, went by quickly. There was much tearing of wrapping paper, many exclamations of excitement over molded plastic items, time with family, and even a little bit of sleeping in. I hope that the rush and bustle of the just passed season was good for you as well.
Not much else that I can think of to report, so on to the music!
For those who like to see behind the curtain: I think the first track (“Fat Cat” by Amorphous Androgynous [which is actually another name for The Future Sound of London] samples “of These, Hope” by Peter Gabriel from his album Passion. Tales of Ephidrina came out in ’93, Passion in ’89. Here is a link to the Peter Gabriel cut. Listen for yourself and see what you think.
