Two For Tuesday

OK, I'm a bit scattered in general and I kind of forgot I was trying to do a weekly feature. Welcome to my life. This is normal. Anyhow, the idea of this two'fer is supposed to be something old and something new. I'll start with the new.



THE NATIONAL-Slow Show

I think they feel like an old comfortable pair of shoes, a pair that apparently sings and plays lovely music. Yeah. That's it. Anyhow, I haven't had enough time to really absorb them completely, but on first drive-by they remind me of...



NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS-Do You Love Me

Somthing about the atmospheric deperateness in the sound of these two bands. It's retro yet timeless. A heartbreak in slow motion, your breath crystallizing in the air as you walk down the street at night, the loneliness of a big city.

I would like to start a cover band called "Nick Cave and The Awesome Seeds."

It's always grand to hear Nick Cave.

Grant-Will you play at the Blogfest?
Bubs-What did you think of The National?

Dale said...

The National I hadn't heard of although that's the name of our news broadcast. The song was pretty good.

I love Nick Cave but I love more what you said about the heartbreak in slow motion...
