Other than the drive to and from work, the only time I ever seem to get to listen to music now is when I’m laying in bed at night. I get comfortable, make sure my wife has finished nattering in my ear (that’s true love right there) and then I put my earphones in, crank up the iPod and lay back in the darkness and let the sounds fill my ears.
Usually I will select some songs at random, sometimes I have a plan. Tonight I have a plan. Tonight I will listen to Thirteen Cities by the Americana band Richmond Fontaine. The reason for this choice is because I have just watched the film ‘The Motel Life’ (review tomorrow) which is based on the novel by the bands singer and songwriter Willy Vlautin. It was a film that I enjoyed so thought it was high time I gave the band a listen.
So, hopefully I won’t drift off to sleep before the first track has even finished, if I don’t I will tell you what I think of Thirteen Cities in my review for The Motel Life.
See you on the other side!
