Oh the Luxury

The bliss, the beauty and the decadence of having a week off.  Look at me world... I'm allowed to post on Shananigans again.  As always, don't get too comfortable; the grind shall resume in a mere handful of days.

For now though, let's just shut the world out and have some fun.

Maybe it has something to do with lacking motivation as I approach the end of my degree, but I've found myself listening to a lot of very chilled out, mysterious music.  I was thus very pleased to stumble across Autolux.  Somewhat of a post-grunge throwback to the 90s, this trio from LA fits my mood like a well tailored suit.  Experimental, psychedelic, thought-provoking and at times even a little bit creepy, Autolux is like a great soundtrack for an afternoon of hard drugs on a rainy Sunday.  This statement would probably carry a lot more weight if I wasn't the biggest prude in the world... so let's change my answer to a tumbler full of peaty scotch during an evening snow storm.

Whatever your poison, take two heroic doses, sit back, listen and call me in the morning if you're not feeling better.
