Chewing out a rhythm on my bubble gum
The sun is out and I want some
It’s not hard, not far to reach
We can hitch a ride
To Rockaway Beach

Too good not to reblog.

Hey folks, two points of business:

1. We’ve been informed that advance tickets for the Neutral Milk Hotel shows at First Ave. are going to be will-call only. This means we will not have said tickets for sale at our store 

2. The Record of the Day is taking a short hiatus due to a staff changeover. Keep an eye out for those posts to resume ASAP.

Love,

Eclipse Records
