a nice surprise happened when i googled tobin sprout. i've been waiting 7 anos for his return and i'm very psyched about the new album - the blue birds of happiness tried to land on my shoulder. from what i can tell he hasn't changed his approach to playing and song writing. some would say that tobin writes the way pop songs should be written but i'm saying this is my mantra for the summer. i'd like to think that his music forms perfect intimate gem-like circles around the reality of the day. it makes me want to crawl into my musical space and craft or rather bash perfect little diamonds too.
