a lower-case kind of guy

Have spent the morning re-discovering the marvellous hayden. Perfect music to match the rainy gray April weather. Overtly sad lyrics, yet strangely uplifting all the same. He's about to follow up 2002's skyscraper national park with elk-lake serenade, which is being released domestically on May 11 under the Hardwood Records label. He's also touring with Sarah Harmer [who incidentally makes a really brief cameo in the delightful carried away video], set to appear at the Winter Garden Theatre on April 26 & 27.

Hayden also has a Hollywood connection: he recorded the title track for the 1996 film, Tree's Lounge, and co-directed the video with Steve Buscemi. That's just one year after lamenting that "things are as bad as they seem" [perhaps still my favourite hayden song]:

What do I do this for?
Got to get out some more
Go down to the grocery store
Meet someone I'll adore

And on that note, I think I will go down to the grocery store.
