Capricorn
It's easy for most people to lose track of time in this season, Capricorn, but you're the opposite—you need to relax a little and keep something for yourself when the occasion calls for it. Take Joel Peterson of The Faint for example—he wrote most of the new Broken Spindles' record Inside/Absent whilst on tour, sounding like it was something to do during a wind-down. He avoids electronic layering, tinkering away on piano and keyboards, singing journal entries, ideas that pop into his mind, avoiding the excess of his primary band's noisy melange. He took it home and just eased it into existence, and like reading a musical diary, or 'zine, it shines with a simple beauty. It's mysterious—like someone born during the holiday season who has to find their own private joy in the celebration of their existence occurring.
