Last year, I sort of developed this nerdy crush on Ohio's dream-folk outfit, The Lighthouse and the Whaler. The band-aid kind, not the groupie kind. But, I definitely went through a phase where I plastered the band's name all over Speakers in Code like a hopelessly devoted graffiti artist. I hope I didn't exhaust you.
The good news, friends, is that TLATW is back with some new music, the first new release in over two years. Think of them as a less syrupy Freelance Whales. But, still sweet in all the right ways. The Pioneers EP was released about two weeks ago, and it features today's Jam of the Day, "Burst Apart." But, take a few minutes to listen to the entire thing. And then buy it if you so choose.
