Dance Mother, 2009
Brooklyn’s Telepathe is my favorite new band. Bryan gave me the album this morning and I have been listening to it nonstop all day in the studio and in transit while I was running errands. They are the perfect combination of synth and indie. Some of the songs are very Shoegazer-esque, reminding me of the really good Lush songs. They seem really young, so I hope they keep making more and more gorgeous music.

I grew up watching Drew Barrymore grow up with me. We are exactly the same age. This week she has really nice interview on Fresh Air to promote her hew movie, a remake of Grey Gardens.

Helen Levitt died this week at a ripe old age in her sleep. Reading her obituary reminded me how much I have always loved her street photographs of children in New York City. Here are some of my favorites:

Breaking Bad is one of the best TV shows I have ever seen. Season 1 is already on DVD. I highly recommend you see it.
