Hey Lawdy Mama

Here at Farmer In The City we reject Mother's Day and Father's Day as the retail-behemoth-driven scams that they undoubtedly are. Nevertheless, they serve as an occasion, in my case, to be the recipient of stray pieces of the Bob Dylan puzzle that I didn't already have, and in the case of Adrienne, to increase her listening horizons bit by bit. Last year, she was given Feist's "The Reminder". This year (I hope she's not reading this) it will be "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga", by Spoon, my second-favourite record of 2007 (how it can be my second-favourite album of 2007 without me actually owning it is a question that shall remain unanswered).

It just goes to show: Indie Rock is the new Richard Clayderman.
