On my turntable: Head Automatica - Popaganda

Daryl Palumbo, the lead singer for Head Automatica, has crohn's disease (as do I). I discovered this band through reading about Palumbo's other band Glassjaw, whose album Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence (2000) featured multiple references to life with crohn's.

After sampling a couple of tracks from Head Automatica's Popaganda (2006) I quickly tracked down the LP on eBay, sealed for $10. The LP arrived just today and I've not yet opened it - I plan to dig into its contents tonight. My favorite track so far, the very Elvis Costello-esque "Lying Through Your Teeth", is easily one of my favorites of the past few weeks.
