Today was a bit overcast and melancholic, so I wanted to set the sountrack right with Yo La Tengo’s I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One. It was back to focusing on work while listening to music, I didn’t talk too much, and these vinylcasts work best for me when I can just play the music, take care of the to-do list, and then check-in at the album flip. This album was just what I needed today. At day 43 of lockdown I was not feeling all that chipper, so this album grounded me and as it happens the sun broke through just as the “We’re an American Band” guitar solo started. Coincidence? I think not.
