Let me tell you a secret. I don't like any new music right now. None of it. Yeah, sure I bought the new Andrew Bird album (he's coming to Cain's in March!!!*) and The Bird And The Bee, but they're not really doing all that much for me. It's kind of like getting the Guiltless™ Chicken Pita at Chili's when what you really want is the Awesome Blossom (p.s. have you seen this website yet?). Everything that's out there is a big fat meh. Here's what's stuck in my head:
You Left the Water Running - Otis Redding
Erotic City - Prince
Train Song - Vashti Bunyan (but all I can find is the new Feist/Ben Gibbard version)
Got To Get You Into My Life - Earth Wind and Fire version (I know, I know)
What the eff is wrong with me?
I think I'm going to turn things over from now on to some locals who know what they're talking about. Check out Salad Days Music.*
