Not Excited

Have you ever felt that you’re supposed to be excited about a new album coming out, but you aren’t? Such is the case with me and the soon to be released new album from Death Cab For Cutie, Narrow Stairs. Early reviews have been positive, but I’m just not feeling it, even though I haven’t heard a note. Certainly, Ben Gibbard’s annoying article in the usually excellent Paste Magazine didn’t help the band’s case with me. I mean did I really need to read his near stream of consciousness/adolescent journalesque ramblings about Jack Kerouac. I think if I were 22, I might still be anticipating the record and I more than likely would have liked his article, because I think that’s when I was reading Kerouac. But, I’m 37 with a wife and 2 kids and it just didn’t do it for me. I liked Death Cab For Cutie’s last two records. In fact, I listened to them a lot. But now, I just don’t know.

Tell me if this has ever happened to you.

I fell off the india.arie wagon some time back. I still like her music, but I just don't follow what she has coming out. Shame, really.
