Obscure Sound: Best of February 2008

bestfeb.jpg

I always get excited when winter arrives, making it somewhat ironic that I get even more excited when the season is about to pass. After the snow loses its dramatic flair and becomes nothing more than a hassling obstacle for transportation, the occasional day where the temperature exceeds 40° is a rare gift. I guess I can speak for most vacating the east coast when I say this too; very few people are latching onto winter when the end of February rolls around. Even if the groundhog doesn’t see its shadow, one animal certainly does not define the weather. That being said, I welcome March with open arms. Warmer weather starts to (hopefully) emerge, baseball season begins… it is just a great time of year. Spring break is nearing as well, with plans certainly starting to roll in. Still though, let us not disregard the great artists who got many of us through the chilly month that preceded us. This compilation does just that. And as for those living in warmer climates, my jealousy cannot be described in simple words.
