    Vampire Weekend - "Vampire Weekend"



    Finally an American band that's not filled with hate or booty.



    Guarantee you'll like this one Shawn.

    Nice-- I'll check them out. They got a nice write-up in Pitchfork.



    For now: "Possession" by Sarah McLachlan.



    Edit: Checked them out. Love it!

    I've been on a twangy country kick lately. The song I've had on repeat for the past week is Watching Airplanes by Gary Allan. I also discovered a good Ricky Skaggs tune last night while perusing YouTube.

    For the last 3 days I've been immersing myself in the new Elbow - "The Seldom Seen Kid".



    It is a work of absolute genius. Being a romantic, I especially like the first track, "Starlings".



    The record isn't officially released until March 17th.



    I absolutely love Elbow! One of my three favorite bands, the other two being Muse and Placebo.

    Forgiveness -- Patty Griffin -- Living with Ghosts



    We are swimming with the snakes

    At the bottom of the well

    So silent and peaceful in the darkness where we fell

    But we are not snakes and what's more

    We never will be

    And if we stay swimming here forever we will

    Never be free



    I heard them ringing the bells

    In heaven and hell

    They got a secret

    They're getting ready to tell

    It's falling from the sky

    Calling from the graves

    Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved

    Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved

    Let's take a walk on the bridge

    Right over this mess

    Don't need to tell me a thing, baby

    We've already confessed

    And I raised my voice to the air

    And we were blessed

    Everybody needs a little forgiveness

    Everybody needs a little forgiveness



    We are calling for him tonight on this

    Thin phone line

    As usual we're having ourselves one

    hell of a time

    And the planes keep flying right over our heads

    No matter how lond we shout

    "Hey, hey, hey !"

    And we keep waving and waving

    Our arms in the air

    But we're all tired out



    I heard somebody say

    Today's the day

    A big old hurricaine

    Is blowing our way

    Knocking over the buildings

    Killing all the light

    Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night

    Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night

    Let's take a walk on the bridge

    Right over this mess

    Don't need to tell me a thing, baby

    We've already confessed

    And I raised my voice to the air

    And we were blessed

    Everybody needs a little forgiveness

    Everybody needs a little forgiveness

    Lakeside Park -- Rush -- All The World's A Stage



    ...for all those Rush denouncers and you know who you are.



    Midway hawkers calling

    "Try your luck with me;"

    Merry-go-round wheezing

    The same old melody

    A thousand ten cent wonders

    Who could ask for more

    A pocketful of silver

    The key to heaven's door



    Lakeside Park

    Willows in the breeze

    Lakeside Park

    So many memories

    Laughing rides

    Midway lights

    Shining stars on summer nights



    Days of barefoot freedom

    Racing with the waves

    Nights of starlit secrets

    Crackling driftwood flames

    Drinking by the lighthouse

    Smoking on the pier

    Still we saw the magic

    Was fading every year



    Everyone would gather

    On the twenty-fourth of May

    Sitting in the sand

    To watch the fireworks display.

    Dancing fires on the beach,

    Singing songs together...

    Though it's just a memory,

    Some memories last forever.

    I really like Mobius Band's cover of The National's Baby We'll Be Fine, available here as a free download: http://www.mobiusband.com/vday/. The National's Boxer is cool, especially Fake Empire. Their lead singer's been compared to Joy Division's Ian Curtis. Something about them reminds me of early Patti Smith, also Bruce Springsteen. Am I crazy? Vampire Weekend is catchy, but I think they're the media hype of the moment. (I'll be curious to see where they are a year or 2 from now.) If Palomar's volcals were a bit more forward I'd have them at the top of my list. You can listen to Our Haunt on their label's website (Misra, same label Mobius Band is on).



    I found a version of Some Velvet Morning by Primal Scream and Kate Moss on the net, in a blog that appeared after Lee Hazelwood's death. I think it's on a CD somewhere. I love it...
