As a light mist of rain settles on the window, here’s a few songs that have been keeping me company lately. Enjoy your Sunday …
Fare Thee Well - Robert Fischer (Willard Grant Conspiracy)
WGC main man Robert Fischer here in solo acoustic mode. Word is the whole rambling ensemble are hitting our shores early 2010.
1897 - Seaworthy
Recorded in an a decomissioned ammunitions bunker, this album blends the bands atmspheric instrumentation and field recordings. Perfect for late nights and early mornings…
Lost Coastlines – Okkervil River
And to finish off… the perfect country-pop of Okkervil River. One of the live highlights of my musical year.
Well tonight I finished watching Deadwood. If you have not seen it, I totally recommend you do so. And don’t be put off by the relentless cursing, violence and moral chaos… there is so much more going on. I mean, this is hands down the most linguistically brilliant television dialogue I have encountered.
Just have a look at some of these quotes and these two articles on the language of Deadwood.
Deadwood’s linguistic brilliance
The language of Deadwood
And already, I am mourning for it.
So here’s a song from Willard Grant Conspiracy, to ease the pain… The Suffering Song. Indeed for all of the characters in Deadwood and all in life, suffering’s gonna come someday.
Get yours here… The Suffering Song.
