Chappaquiddick Skyline - "Everyone Else Is Evolving"

"I haven't listened to my Chappaquiddick Skyline album in forever," I thought the other day. "I wonder how it holds up."

A side project from the king of the wistful bummer -- well, one of 'em, anyway -- Joe Pernice, Chappaquiddick Skyline is just as mopey and pretty as I recalled. And, actually, it wasn't as dreary as my memory had led me to believe. The opening track sets the tone. It's called "Everyone Else Is Evolving." But everyone knows it by its unofficial title, "I Hate My Life."
