Looking Up by Citizens

Citizens have a new album entitled Fear releasing later this week.
Kickstarter backers have been listening to it a week early.
Looking Up is the first official video released.
This is not so much ‘sing in church’ material, and I don’t know why they’re busting all their best dad dance moves for the video, but the music is strong.

Losing Battles by Josh Ritter

Losing Battles is a track from Josh Ritter’s just released (tenth!, I think) album Fever Breaks.
Adding to the experience this time around is production from Jason Isbell who provides music along with his band The 400 Unit.
Ritter’s lyrics interact with themes of good and evil, love and loss, failure and hope. Yearning.
I’ve liked the more story-telling songs in the past, but these seem personal.

Footy Tipping 2019 – NRL Round 7 / AFL Round 6

With Easter and Anzac Day, the AFL are playing for something like nine out of ten days.
Which just seems a bit excessive. I lodged my tips when I realized last night’s game was starting.
I did my NRL tips as well, and they’ve started this afternoon as well.

NRL (last round 6/8; season tally 31/48)
North Queensland
Parramatta (even though it’s their rostered weekend off)

AFL (last round 5/9; season tally 19/45)
Port Adelaide
Brisbane (without confidence)
Greater Western Sydney
