CAKE’s new album, Showroom of Compassion, is so mellow and easy to listen to, compared to some of their earlier work. I’m fast falling in love!

Similarly, Editors and The Cinematics constantly surprise me with the way they make kind of hard-core rock seem mellow and comforting. Favorite Editors tune at the current moment? Definitely “Weight of the World”: “Every little piece of your life…will mean something to someone.” It’s so reassuring! Not sure about my favorite tune from The Cinematics, at present.

Also mellower than expected? Evols and Local Natives.  Good stuff.


P.S. : I like that, thanks to software, I can “love” “Teenage Pregnancy.” Yea-ya!
