Filtering PR e-mails is an art I can’t say I’ve entirely mastered, and I bet I’ve deleted news of some really great music along with all those messages about, say, the Sixpence None the Richer reunion. (Yes, that band.) But when I get an e-mail with the subject line “A Definite 21st Century Shot Into Darkness,” I make sure to stop, read it, and give a listen.

In the case of Upholstery & Carpet Cleaning, whose sole member, Matthew McGarry, sent me the e-mail in question, I’m glad I did—it led me to today’s 12 O’Clock Track, “Slow Cloud.”
