Not a bad little record, a bit odd but pretty good.

Every Sunday morning I wake up
I see you by your dresser doing your make-up
Fluttering a Chinese fan in a Knoxville fashion
All last night you tossed and turned
Your body was hotter than the night Richmond burned
You say you had a bad nightmare about tractor trailers crashing

has anyone seen a video where they do some sort of unplugged performance in paris? there're two little kids that sort of randomly come across these dudes playing and they start dancing to their music. it's really cute.

I don't know if it's the best song on the album, but it sets the tone and is pretty fucking awesome. And I knew about this shit in May (actually, earlier than that).

Muscle N Flo is one of the better songs. Wet + Rusting is the best, without argument. This is a great record, and not just a little bit because of the Craig Thompson artwork. You actually want to own a hard copy of this. Get the vinyl.

I really, really like this album a lot. Fuck you for not liking "Muscle and Flo". That song rules. You all are very clearly wrong.
