Mr. Halperin, or whoever does his webmastery, dropped a thank you for mentioning the Sweet Lights record as part of one of the Best Ofs here. Sweet.

Lloyd Cole... damn. I was a huge fan in the way back era. This reminded me to look up the commotions stuff. Nicely: appears to stream everything he's ever done (maybe not full songs, but seems to be at least 2 minutes of each). Time to start prioritizing some purchases.
