not to climb on a soapbox or anything, but I think it's terrible that the whole Taylor Swift/Kanye West VMAs fiasco (which was gross, Kanye you stupid turd, leave the poor girl alone) will likely overshadow the discovery of a Yale grad student's body in the lab where she worked, the day after she was supposed to get married.
Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right. Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.
