At my cafe in the Haight-Ashbury this morning, this was playing:
Leopold and His Fiction, “Ain’t No Surprise” – from the album of the same name (2009)
When this song first started penetrating my as yet uncaffeinated consciousness, I thought it was Bob Dylan – the verse sections with tambourine in particular reminded me of “Tombstone Blues” – but it turns out it’s a local band, which is always nice, and one I’d never heard of before, which is also nice, but usually just underlines how hopelessly unhip and out of touch I am.
