on the stereo
Wowzers. I never get tired of this Galaxie 500 album. It was their last, and many people say their best.
I can't begin to choose a favorite song. Melt Away? Listen, the Snow is Falling? King of Spain? Fourth of July?
The music is haunting, fresh, original, and somehow intimate and personal. Hard to believe it came out in 1990.
Or maybe not so hard to believe.
