I have much love for Espers, but since when did a $600 mahogany Martin getting dinged up on a flight make the muster for a longish Pitchfork news item. C'mon, this ain't akin to a van full of gear getting stolen nor is it a couple of mild-mannered indie rocker kids getting beat up by Houston's finest. I mean, if you're going to give some ink to La Familia Espers, why not talk about Meg Baird's freshly-minted solo album. Warning: It's okay to delete your copy of Pink Moon on the Nano to make room for this one. Don't sweat it, it's a worthy replacer.
