Apex Manor - My My Mind
The genesis of this band is interesting. Ross Flournoy, formerly of The Broken West, was inspired to start the band after responding to a challenge by NPR's Carrie Brownstein to write and record a song in a weekend. Ross used this as a stepping stone out of a bad case of writer's block that he was suffering. He continued working in this vein while he lived in Pasadena, California, spending his days writing, drinking and hanging out at home. This is from the aptly titled album 'The Year of Magical Drinking' released on Merge Records in January 2011. Proof that inspiration comes from the strangest and most unexpected of places.
