WTF of the Day: The National and Mad Men's Roger Sterling?

It takes a real event - or threat of one - to get me to post these days... but my interested has piqued at the random placement of the above three pictures on pitchfork.com.

Is it a new National video? A line of menswear? A random demonstration of what The National are capable of with millions of dollars they now have at their disposal? I've requested comment from Mr. Pitchfork himself, Ryan Schreiber. I await his answer.


UPDATE: These were screencaps from the new video from The National for their tune "Conversation 16," which has debuted today and can be watched here.

New Sufjan Album 'Age of Adz' Out This October

As if a 60 minute EP wasn't enough to quell the thirst for new Sufjan, the poet who knows it is set to release his second batch of new material on a full length this October. According to Asthmatic Kitty's release the album "shows an extensive use of electronics... and an obsession with cosmic fantasies." I know, what?

It sounds as if Sufjan might be heading back in the direction of his eclectic "Enjoy Your Rabbit," the album that first demonstrated Mr. Stevens obsessions with thematic elements and electronic music. The new album actually doesn't boast any common leitmotif besides the usual "of love, loss, and the apocalypse," and I am hoping hoping hoping it can help Sufjan break out of the mold his unique vocals casts.

As an aside, this might be the album that the National had hinted to having cameos on... makes it all a little more exciting.

Listen and buy the All Delighted People EP here.

Info on Sufjan's upcoming Fall Tour here.


...and I am back.

After hearing a number of singles off the new Arcade Fire...

I think Win is venturing into Morrissey range with his voice and inflections.... and even though they aren't necessarily the most exciting tunes they've done thus far, I think the songs are going to blow people away during their live sets. OFTGD


New Format For Posts...

I never really have time to dedicate to full posts. Instead I will be embarking on extended tweets here at One For The Good Days... think of them as long streams of thought that are more spontaneous and thereby come straight from my heart/brain. OFTGD
