Headlights Dream Of Enchantment Under The Sea

Even though it’s only February, I’ve already accumulated a nice little stack of records from 2008 that I’m really enjoying; near the top of that pile is Some Racing, Some Stopping by the Champaign band Headlights. It’s a lovely, shimmery album full of sweet melodies and bits of bliss, and one of my favorite songs on it is the lilting “Cherry Tulips,” which is capped by a sparkling slide-guitar solo and which never fails to put a smile on my face. The video places the band on a platform that could double as the stage at an olde tyme school dance; perhaps unsurprisingly, it was inspired by a dream that lead vocalist Erin Fein had one night.
