I have been away—from the blog, anyway—for days, and I have very little to show for it. Until I find some time to put up a proper update and/or write something substantial (ha!) for you to read, I hope you’ll accept this.
Two songs, both from independent Canadian artists, have invaded my head. The first is “12:59 Lullaby” by Bedouin Soundclash. You can, and should, listen to the song here. What do you think? The other song is “If I Were a Car,” by The Great Outdoors. You can listen to it here. Which did you like better?
I’m not sure what’s up with me. I keep falling for these fragile-sounding near-dirges by, er, idiosyncratic lead vocalists. A few weeks ago, I was gaga for Great Lake Swimmer’s “Your Rocky Spine.” And I’ve just kept moving in that direction. Maybe I’m feeling fragile? Or maybe I want to feel more fragile?
