Independent Clauses | n. —unusual words about underappreciated music

Life is Good

April 1, 2008

lifeisgoodApril. April april april. Aaaaaaapril. I’m so tired of April. I wish it were June. In June, we’re going to have some incredible new things to debut for you here on Independent Clauses. They will drastically change the way people view Independent Clauses (hint hint).

But that’s really the only reason that I’m trying to jump out of April. The CD release season is upon us, spring is here, and the lineups for festivals are being released. It’s a good time to be alive, in independent music and just in general.

It’s a good time to be Venna, as their fantastic new EP just got released. Columnist Max Thorn enjoys being in his band, now that he’s done every mistake in the book. The column makes me laugh, but it’s also got a lot of truth in it. There’s battle of the bands winners in this issue – it’s good to be them.

So I hope you read this edition and enjoy. It’s a good time to be, and I hope this edition will only enforce that for you. Enjoy the edition!
