Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: Lali Puna – Being Water

A fantastic new Tuna from the wonderful Lali Puna. This is one of the catchiest songs I’ve heard in a long time – electro pop at it’s exuberant best.

January 31 (The sky is crumbling…)  by David Lehman The sky is crumbling into millions of paper dots the wind blows in my face so I duck into my favorite barber shop and listen to Vivaldi and look in the mirror reflecting the shopfront windows, Broadway and 104th, and watch the dots blown by the…
