Music for a Snowy Sunday

For whatever reason, I am particularly unable to work without the benefit of music today. Actually, I've been pretty focused on a few albums for the past couple of days: Steve Earle's "Jerusalem" and "Washington Square Serenade," Sigur Rós' "Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust" and Fleet Foxes' self-titled album.

Maybe it's because of the political climate that I'm drawn to these Steve Earle albums. Maybe it is just that I'm more relaxed than I probably should be with the second week of the term flying at me, a political rally to help with, and a presentation to put together. The roommate is out of town which is always a bit of a bonanza for me because it means the t.v. will be turned off, letting me listen to all the music I can cram in before his return.

In particular, this song has jumped out at me. And since I'm up at the office - albeit briefly - listening to it so loud it'd surely set the Nun Next Door off if she were here, I thought I'd share it with all of you. It's a song called "White Winter Hymnal" by Fleet Foxes. Hope you enjoy it.
