jendilemma:

over the last months i’ve been working with my friend Jon (who encouraged me to do First Times the Charm with him last year) on his solo project, Attendant. his songs were recorded with a ton of really talented folks in the Philly music community (all of the members of Radiator Hospital & the Ambulars, plus Swearin, Pinkwash, Dead Dog, and more - you can see the full list on the page). 

it’s up on bandcamp now and I’m really excited to share it!! i’m posting my favorite song from the album, Saturday, but click through and listen to the whole thing too - it’s pay what you can to download. i’m slightly copying Sammy by saying FFO: Husker Du/Bob Mould bands, Replacements, Dinosaur Jr, Gin Blossoms, etc.

Jon’s other band Radiator Hospital is going on tour for a month on their sick new record starting tomorrow, when Attendant plays Rad Hos’ record release/tour kickoff. go see them when they come through your town!!

This little fish showed no signs of hesitation as it swum up to divers and photobombed their picture. The 15cm thornback trunkfish took a liking to a diver’s camera and playfully interacted with them in the Red Sea, off Israel.
