I hadn't heard anything from M. Ward's new album, Hold Time, until this morning, but the situation has now been remedied. I found "Never Had Nobody Like You" totally poppy and charming, equal parts nodding at The Beatles, Nick Drake, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. I hope the whole record's this good.
Here's the song, via Music for Kids Who Can't Read Good. Enjoy: "Never Had Nobody Like You."
Now that the MFA is over, I can start following a few of the music blogs again. Happy days.
p.s. Unrelatedly, I did a little interview over at Micol's Bradford Blog Bash about blogging and such as guest blogger of the day. Please excuse my typos (mostly missing ats for some reason); I plead a cold while answering. Also, do not mock my woodenness in the graduation photo–relaxed scholarly owl stance was not taught in advance!

Ward’s tune reminded me most of Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll Part Two” – the drum rhythm is very similar. If you had told me five years ago that an M. Ward tune would one day make me think of Gary Glitter, I would have said you were out of your mind. But here we are.
No kidding — the future is wacky. And I can definitely hear that too.
Silly girl–I think the grad photo is cute!
Cute in the “all of us except Gene look like we are before a firing squad” way!
