maybe it is the conservative nature i somehow inherited simply by being born/raised in the south, but for some reason i have been reluctant to check out new music (and by new, i mean recently released). i am content with buying reissues/finding old soul 45's/etc, but it is so hard for me to move on. i guess when you are out of touch for so long, you are intimidated by where to pick up.
i have also always prided myself on being an avid supporter of the music coming out of my home (columbia, sc), despite having moved 3,000 miles away. but for some reason, i don't really listen to the myspace pages i click on with full intentions of listening to... i get distracted and wind up clicking a thousand links and forgetting whatever was intended.
with that being said, i am also very self-aware. and just to further prove my progress, today i downloaded "baby prayers" by coma cinema here and haven't stopped listening to it since i got home from work.
i guess last on the wagon is better than never getting on.
