i think because it was the last tuesday of november, which is when albums are usually released in the us. i guess they were hoping drag city would surprise us with the album at the last possible moment but…no such luck.

oh really? why today?
oh wait i just got it haha
i mean… i’d certainly be happier if it got released this month but i honestly don’t mind waiting, there’s plenty of music to keep me occupied til whenever she decides to release it. plus maybe a longer wait means a couple more songs or changing things around for it to sound even better than it did before. i’ve no doubt that the wait will be more than worth it :)

It is the day.
with my ears cocked up like a gun
(like every day, of course),
yanked by my wrists
to the sugar-front courtyard—
now tell me, what have I done?
