Light has been a big topic of conversation this week since this Sunday, November 7 at 2 a.m., we change our clocks back to standard time. The most popular sentiment seems to be dread--of evening commuting in the dark, of the end of having enough light to play outside or work in the yard at the end of the day.
Plus, research suggests that the return to standard time affects us in a variety of ways, from disrupted sleep to an increase in car vs. pedestrian accidents. On the bright side, this change could lead to the need for more napping, contemplating day, night and the nature of time or just generally cozying up to the realities of seasonal changes.

Floating away from his studio in N.Y. to the sun and beaches of L.A., Dave Sitek inflates his solo project with so much talent it is ready to pop. From David Byrne to Karen O to guest appearances by Tunde & Kyp, you can be sure that the Maximum Balloon is here to brighten up any party.
When a musical prodigy such as Dave Sitek decides to do a solo album, fans worry.....Will he grab for the dollars and fill it with tracks featuring Kanye West and Lady Gaga?

Luckily for his fans, none of these scenarios are the case and what you get is another piece of musical genius by a producer who can do no wrong.
