Song of the Week: “Moaning Lisa Smile” by Wolf Alice


This week’s song is “Moaning Lisa Smile” by the London band Wolf Alice from their debut album My Love Is Cool.  The sound is reminiscent of early 90s indie pop, but the video is straight out of the 80s.  Neither of which is a bad thing.

A beautiful early Spring day proved perfect for a visit to New York’s seaside playground, Coney Island.  We started with a visit to the New York Aquarium, which is still rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy, but still able to display and explain a variety of aquatic animals.  We enjoyed seeing Diego and Osborne in the sea lion show, particularly.  Then, Peter and I took a ride on the famous Wonder Wheel, where the cars not only go in a big circle, but slide around within the circle.  In between, we ate lunch on the Boardwalk at Nathan’s Famous Frankfurters.
