I finally got around to downloading my preorder digital copy of The Paper Raincoat and have been listening on repeat for . . . at least the last five hours or so.

After the first time through I'm mostly capable of having it on in the background, by which I mean that while it occasionally grabs my attention, it doesn't usually jerk me out of whatever I'm focusing on with the verge-of-tears emotional response I get from good music. I only get that response if I actually listen to it consciously or try to sing along to it.

As opposed to the first time through, where I had an apple in my hand and was kind of trying to read LJ and would spend three minutes straight just kind of not doing anything except listening and not-quite-crying. And this wasn't my first exposure to the music.

I was first exposed to The Paper Raincoat when they were opening for Vienna Teng up here last spring. Like she, they are totally awesome. I highly recommend their album. Download "Right Angles" from the link above to see if they're at all to your taste. I'll be here listening to this very solid album when you get back.

Boston-area folks, Paper Raincoat, who I believe I mentioned a few months ago in the context of opening for Vienna Teng, and part of whom anybody who has heard Vienna Teng's new album has heard, is playing at Club Passim this Saturday at 8pm. Tickets are $14 plus fees.

[livejournal.com profile] shield_toad111 and I are going. If you'd like to join us, let me know and we can try to grab seats together.

Have successfully replaced my copy of The Don't Quit Your Day Job Players' "Blues Spoken Here" thanks to the magic of Amazon Marketplace. I'd apparently misplaced the CD before I got around to ripping it, so I've been entirely without it and missing it for a few years now. I've missed this.

"Disc-O-Rama" included a 10% off coupon for in-store purchases. They're apparently in Manhattan. If anybody wants the coupon, let me know and I'll get it to you. I'm not going to use it.
