In Case You Missed It: Week In Review

tip jar

For those of you who were expecting a radio show today, we apologize – UMD sports took over during our normal showtime (Aw, don’t cry! Just today, don’t you worry! Actually…next week too…we’ll be off for Thanksgiving.) So as you get a nice little break from our voices, this gives you a great chance to catch up on everything you may have missed while getting locked up in jail for failing to pay a tip (h/t to Brandon).

*Pick of the Week*
Slowcoustic: “Song of the Day (and new discovery) “Time’s Ticking” from Isbells!” Sandy finds another one of his patented folk gems, this time from a slightly more pop artist, Isbells. Which is slightly exactly the type of thing I so often feature here. The harmonies on this song are gorgeous in a very Bon Iver way. (And P.S. – check out his Best of ’09 Blogger Crew on the sidebar…we’re the unique one 😉 … seriously, though, some excellent blogs on there!)
