I haven’t posted about music in a while but this one caught my ear. The latest Regina Spektor (What We Saw From the Cheap Seats)is very worth the purchase. This song below stuck out because if the voice was stripped out and we had just the structure, the lyrics, the melody and the instrumentation, I would have identified it as a Hawksley Workman song.
Here is Hawksley doing Ice Age from one of his best cds, the end of the world Treeful of Darling.
Other beauties on the plate these days are the latest Walkmen, the Divine Fits (for those who need another Spoon cd), and still enjoying the Fiona Apple.
