NOTES THIS WEEK:
- My goosebumpy heart -- that She & Him cover is just the bestest of the best;
- We've decided that that Bill Withers cover is just the worst thing ever;
- "A Belly Was Made for Wine" - best song title and totally dedicated to me and Big City Kelly who have been living like teenagers all week;
- Bill Withers has the ability to cut your heart right out and roll it around in his fingers with that song;
- Remember Neko Case at Massey Hall when she noise-rocked the shit out of "Knock Loud???"
- I love playing new stuff for Big City Kelly!!!!!! Another Bon Iver fan marked in the books!
- "Try a Little Tenderness" maybe an obvious choice but let's not undermine the phenomenal greatnessitude of that song;
- So Damien Jurado? I bought the record after having twice said "Hey who is this? It's great!" and twice having the answer be "It's Damien Jurado!" Love it!!
- The Danks' record is considerably better than their name would otherwise indicate. Seriously......that's a bad band name;
- Hayden on vinyl? Purchased and loved. Thanks Criminal Records!
