It took me a month to realize it, but this is one of the best songs of the year.
Springsteen just released a studio version of this Suicide cover that doesn’t hold a candle to the way he used to perform it. Even with shitty sound, this is one of my favorites.
One of my very favorite musicians of the last several years. Can’t wait for his forthcoming album, due in January.
We saw Mike Doughty play an entire show of Soul Coughing material last night at the Fonda. He sounded great and it was so much fun to hear those songs again. True Dreams of Wichita has always been one of my favorites.
The new Shearwater album will include covers of Clinic, St Vincent, Sharon Van Etten and more. Can’t wait. http://shearwatermusic.com/2013/10/f-ed-up-life/
Current favorite song.
Another email gang discovery. This sounds exactly like something I can’t place… Anyone?
UPDATE: Of course. Yo La Tengo. Duh.
Great Junip show at the Troubadour last night. The crowd was in love and the band looked like they felt it. Smiles all around and many thanks.
Your Life Your Call
In Every Direction

After All Is Said and Done
I don’t totally get the lyrics to this song, but I love it. It ain’t Hemingway, but it crushes me when he sings “i’m sorry i’m really sorry i really am.” That’s all I really need to understand about this story.
Thanks to the email music gang for the tip.
I’m giving away a pair of tickets for Junip at the Troubadour in LA this Sunday, October 20. Leave a note or comment if you want ‘em! Random winner chosen later today.
I’ll be at the show too. Huge huge fan of Jose Gonzalez and Junip.
UPDATE: Tickets are spoken for! Congrats to Chris C. from LA. Going to be a great show.
Yes, that’s Kim Deal. Yes, she left the band before this release.
This is vintage.

If You Leave is highly RIYL Florence & the Machine, Bat For Lashes, percussion, angst and/or nostalgia.
