Waltham: "Holiday" (1.5M mp3)  

Because it's summer, and I really want to tie everyone down in the sun and blast these songs until you give up and get happy. This one is from the Awesome bonus EP, which here in Boston, at least, comes rubber-banded to Waltham's insanely unselfconsciously magnificent (and predictably self-titled) Rykodisc major-label debut.
After playing the Waltham album and the bonus EP a couple times each, I'm even more thrilled. This is basically the 2005-production band version of 80s solo Rick Springfield. If that doesn't seem like a good idea to you, it probably won't sound like one either.
Waltham: "Cheryl (Come and Take a Ride)" (1.9M mp3)  

I haven't even listened to the rest of the album yet, this is just track 1.
And lastly, if for no other reason than that the time-stamps on our photos are the only journal I kept this time, the stubbornly and inexplicably interested are cautiously and apologetically welcome to click as fast as possible through the otherwise potentially interminable Japan+Bali 2005 extended instrumental all-plot remix.
