I've been up to my elbows in packing tape and cardboard boxes (and CDs, trust me) for the past week, as I'm moving apartments tomorrow. (You're not getting rid of me, though; I'm just moving somewhere cheaper.) Since I've been attempting to compartmentalize up my life, I somehow keep reaching for albums from three bands: Jimmy Eat World, Get Up Kids and R.E.M. My love for the latter is well-documented, but for whatever reason, the band's entire catalog has helped keep me going as much as the espresso has.
After the jump, take a look at a live video (from England's old music show the Tube) of "Driver 8"/"Can't Get There from Here," two songs from 1985's Fables of the Reconstruction. More substantial content is coming later in the day.
