Light a lantern at the bar

Well, well, well. The Metro Times music issue is out today, and check out who got the cover: none other our favorite Mitten State tall tale tellers Great Lakes Myth Society.

The issue on a whole is a much-needed print chronicle of the current state of Southeastern Michigan music, and also features the first installment of a new Metro Times feature called Grapeshot, which is a rundown of recent local releases. A recommended jumping-off point for anyone who thinks Just Haircuts and Jackets' coverage is too shallow (and a good place for us to find out about stuff, too — I need to get my hands on this A-plus-worthy PAS/CAL EP).

Also, if there's any doubt that Metro Times music editor Johnny Loftus is anything less than the finest sound-analyzing voice in the area, peep the last graf from his GLMS write-up: "And whatever you do, don't call Great Lakes Myth Society soft. Remember, James Monger has wrestled lampreys."

Wrestling lampreys. Hell yeah.

Ahhhh!!!! "Heydays" is on there! Everyone needs to listen to that song because it is a fantastic source for names of things on the Internet — and a good song to boot.

yAre you hip to Ann Arbor's Benoit Pioulard? Dude's new record is so damned good... I had heard some of his previous stuff on myspace, and it was good, but this is really fucking good.

Hey, Brandon. Nice to see you around, even if in twelve point font.

I'd also like to second (or third, didn't someone mention this in a previous post?) Precis. Between working at Ghostly, being a full-time student, and making such a gorgeous record, Tom is a fount of inspiration.
