When I got home late last night, I had a myspace friend request from Austin's Ola Podrida. The name immediately struck a chord, as there used to be a unique, quaint Spanish artist-mall in Dallas of the same name that I used to enjoy going to as a kid. For some reason, the thought of this place sparked a feeling of bittersweet nostalgia. Strangely enough, the music of Ola Podrida, and this song in particular, were perfect for my unexpected mood. This song is beautiful:

Ola Podrida's songwriter, David Wingo, also composes scores for David Gordon Green's films, including All the Real Girls and George Washington. I highly recommend heading over to their myspace page, where you can download a few more songs.
