Friday Music: The Lumineers

The Lumineers tend to put me in a good mood, regardless of what’s going on.

There’s an awful lot of over-produced music around, and that’s coming from a guy who listens to prog bands like Genesis, Rush, Yes, and Pink Floyd.

The Lumineers sound like a bunch of folks that are having a good time.


It’s better to feel pain, than nothing at all
The opposite of love’s indifference
So pay attention now
I’m standing on your porch screaming out
And I won’t leave until you come downstairs

They can write.

Have a good weekend.

And then, for good measure, check this out:

I saw it on Twisted Sifter.

I’ve been taking the IAABC writing mentorship with Eileen Anderson. I’ve learned a great deal from it, and it is at least partially responsible for the stories I published here this week and last, as well as some other material that I will be submitting to websites and/or journals soon.

See you next week.
