No word of a lie.
@las0687 and I went to Yorkshire Sculpture Park today. It’s a 500 acre park with a huge variety of temporary and permanent installations, as well as some beautiful architecture and landscapes. When I was a kid, I used to have a recurring dream where I’d explore the gardens of the estate I lived on by night and find all sorts of strange and fascinating sculptures in each. Many of those we saw today were reminiscent of the ones I dreamed about as a child. I was walking around in awe for most of the day! Whether you want to ponder the meaning and motivation behind the works or just treat your eyes to a visual feast, I’d highly recommend visiting! #yorkshire #sculpture #park #ysp #arts #barnsley #wakefield #dayout (at Yorkshire Sculpture Park)

This record is the definition of “a grower.” I still remember buying it on a vague recommendation from a user on an online forum and seeing @kanexdoe absolutely piss himself laughing the second the vocals on “Animal Life” kicked in; now, a good 3 or 4 years later it’s finally sinking in what an awesome record it is. The dudes voice is kinda weird but again, it grows on you, and he songwriting is phenomenal; so many little details that reveal themselves more clearly with every subsequent listen. For those completely unfamiliar, I’d file this under indie-rock/folk/world-music, but even that unwieldy set of tags hardly cover it… #shearwater #animaljoy #subpop #folk #indie #jams
The island of Spinalonga: over the centuries it has been used as a Venetian defence fortress, a Turkish settlement, and most infamously, a leper colony. A truly amazing place to visit and explore. #crete #spinalonga #ancientruins #historical #leprosy (at Spinalonga, Greece)
Cretan Sunset. #beachhike #peninsula #elounda #crete #kolokitha #sunset #skyporn #nofilter (at Kolokitha Beach)
When I eventually star in my own 80s cop show, this will be the theme tune.
A spot of holiday reading… #bees #costello #walking #hungry #trees #yeah
Anonymous said: Give me Lungfish-y, Unwound-y, and Drive Like Jehu-y bands to check out please! Thanks!
check out “mouse ear (forget-me-not)” by shotmaker. they are somewhere in between unwound and drive like jehu. also check out “save everything” by shipping news. they do not necessarily sound like any of those three, but i think liking those bands will mean you would be into it (i revisited that record this morning and remembered how dope it is.) also, shipping news is only two degrees of separation from lungfish: jeff mueller of shipping news also played in june of 44 with sean meadows who used to play bass in lungfish. there you have it.
Reblogging this so I remember to check these bands out when I have access to speakers/headphones and am not stood in the middle of a busy street…
