Go Here, Read These, Listen to That

Not the Smokey Robinson Kind

I could conjure a miracle or three for you because it's that time. Or I could link to the Andy Partridge-produced "Miracle of the Age" by Dr. & the Medics (famed as much for the lead singer's hair as for their 80s remake of "Spirit in the Sky") -- but I can't find it anywhere online.

So I'll let others be miraculous today:

Whiteray over at Echoes in the Wind believes in miracles. So does Barely Awake in Frog Pajamas.

Meanwhile, the streets may be clear in Vancouver, but over at Matador Records, it's snowing. Which somehow indicates that there's a new New Pornographers album out in a couple months... and with song titles like "Valkyrie in the Roller Disco" you know it'll be amazing. You can listen to or download the song "Your Hands (Together)" which has a very slow build, but explodes out of the gate about a minute in.
