When you run upwards of 10 hours a week, music takes on increased importance. If it weren't for my trusted iPod Nano, I think I'd go batshit crazy. Fortunately for me, I have some friends who hook me up with some of the best and newest music (should out to my RTP peeps). For those of you looking for something new, lots to recommend, including the newest Beastie Boys album, Antlers, Modest Mouse (everything this dude touches is gold), Cold Cave, Fleet Foxes, Gang Gang Dance (weird, but really listenable), Love Inks, and My Morning Jacket, among others.
Anything new out there that anyone recommends? I have plenty of time to listen - scheduled for a 4-5 hour run on Sunday. Yikes. Painful just typing those words.
