I Was a Real Fast Runner
I know absolutely nothing about Dorian Hatchet, except that she has a myspace page, and that she lists "The World Wildlife Fund Endangered Animals List, Intensive Snow Fort Building, all-time greatest NASA bloopers, and unrealized childhood fantasy" among her many influences.
I found this song at Said The Gramophone, who imagined that the song was being sung by a guppy, "and that this stuff is happening to a family of guppies". As ridiculous as that sounds, it makes perfect sense, once again illustrating the fact that Said the Gramophone is the most eloquently written blog around.
Since I'd imagine StG and gorilla vs. bear have somewhat different audiences, I thought I'd share. Highly recommended:

As I'm sure you're aware, tomorrow is a huge day for new releases, and one that hopefully won't get lost in the Cat Power/Jenny Lewis shuffle is the new Ester Drang record, Rocinate. Jade Tree has made two mp3s available for your listening pleasure, and both are very good:
Ester Drang Come Back Alive mp3
Ester Drang Valencia's Dying Dream mp3
