TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Hey! “School’s out for the summer!” Yeah well, last week officially for li’ Jonah. I don’t think I’ll ever lose a connection with that special feeling I had as a kid. A warmth of excitement and testostrone. The realization that for the next 10 weeks I was free.

“…No more pencils no more books / No more teacher’s dirty looks / Out for summer / Out till fall / We might not come back at all…”

For this week’s Idelic hour I tried to imagine what it would be like to have that youthful free feeling of “no school”—to transport myself to the “warmth of the fun.” You know, the Idelic way, with song.

I can’t think of much more to say other than musically, the hour is broken into sections of new and old sounds. The Antlers new album reminds me of a hot lazy day. Slaptop, the sound of a hot summer night.

It’s crazy to think it’s summer of 2014, but those longs days and nights are here. God knows we need a summer break. So, I’m really looking forward to this weekend, heading into a three-day July 4th!

Love to all, drive safe—and use sunblock.
