To you:

It’s been a rad summer here in Philadelphia. We’ve been living, laughing, loving, and all the other L words that you do during summer. And now we’ve reached our 200th post at The Daily Rag. I appreciate all of you loyal readers, however often you come visit us. There’s lots of change in the air. New seasons, birthdays, new jobs, new leases on life, but no matter what changes, we’ll still be holdin’ it down here at our online home.

There’s also some exciting things in the works for our fair blog: year end/decade end lists, new contributors and new dope shit for your eyes and ears. Hopefully you enjoy what you find here and continue to come back.

As a little personal thank you to all of you, this is a mix I’ve been listening to myself for the last couple weeks. There’s stuff on it i’ve already posted, and stuff I haven’t. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I’ve been. Thanks again! Have an amazing weekend!

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart


I know, I know. I didn’t want to like these guys either. It’s always annoying and gag inducing when every blog in the world falls in love with a band all at once. Especially when they have such a transparently indie name. So for the last couple months, I’ve been putting my fingers in my ears and shouting “LA LA LA LA” whenever anyone says The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

But then earlier this week, I decided to actually listen to the album. And now I can’t stop. Seriously. It’s excellent shoegazey indie pop. So now I’m just one more idiot with a blog pushing this band. Great.

Here’s to jumping on bandwagons!
