Eugene’s own Fast Computers have the Song of the Day on NPR with “Sweden Hasn’t Changed, You Have” which is, come to think of it, my favorite FC song, too (though in my head the title lacks the last two words). Sure, they spelled Peter’s last name incorrectly, but what’s a little misspelling in the face of good publicity? Caroline Evans writes, “The melody itself is powerful, haunting and stark, but it also seems organic and natural, a perfect opening to one of the year’s most satisfying releases.” Sweet.
For more on the FC, you might peruse their tour diary entries on Willamette Week’s Local Cut blog. Hey, why didn’t we think of that?
Oh, I know: Local Cut has, um, readers.
(Three cheers to the guy who linked to one of my posts! You give me hope, sir.)
