Next week, late 80's dream popsters Galaxie 500 ship orders of their first three albums finally reissued on vinyl.

Below is also a video for Damon & Naomi's "Song to the Siren."
Fun fact: The first drum kit used by the band (used by drummer Damon Krukowski) was a loaner from Harvard classmate Conan O'Brien. It's on a many songs from early recordings of the band.
