Absolutely beautiful, in the saddest, most beautiful way. I am anticipating this record so much, I can hardly wait.
Huh? What the hell is that description, Stereogummers? You need a pruf, uh, make that proofreader.
I recall a version from the great Irish folk singer Luka Bloom from several years back as well. I think the Hunters & Collectors catalog deserves a closer look…
I wonder if the world would stop spinning on its axis if Robert Pollard wrote a song with a running time of more than 2’03″. So many of his songs are merely teases, sometimes its just annoying. Like this one.
Nice, pretty song. But flawed by poor engineering and production. This sort of music needs to ‘soar’ and the production team but a blanket on it.
Is this an actual song? I think she’s hanging out too much with the unshaven that are in that band from Oxford.
Why bother uploading this crap? The sound is horrible, not giving any respect to the music or the artist. Does anyone care about sound quality anymore? I would rather NOT listen to music than to endure this aural assault.
It’s from Brooklyn, so it is, by default, cool
Easily the best release of the year thus far; a powerful statement, big-themed, muscular, but rendered with honesty and with a depth that is missing in most ‘indie’ music.
Girl’s got a thing for prize fighters… but I do like this treatment of the song.. “Oh what a fuss when the king rides by…”
He just wanted to use the word “beat”.
Okay, wrong track title, guys. This is actually “Doughnut for a Snowman”, not “The Unsinkable Fats Domino”, whose lyrics do have something to do with the title. Ugh!
Is the title a tribute to Fats’ surviving Katrina? A bit dated, but just mysterious enough to make a great GBV song.
One of the most distinctive voices around, Erika Wennerstrom’s twisting, drawn-out lines fit around these songs like a snake. Liking the major chords for a change, too!
Really like the growling tone of this one, kinda primal feel to it.
He’s a bit of a wimp, but an engaging one. And extra points scored for covering Johnny Denver.
Stop your bickering, who cares when the song has such a breezy, eazy groove like this. Beautiful stuff, especially for another chilly night here on the east coast : )
Good one, Emily. I think Camtin refers to Ra Ra Riot, otherwise, hopefully, the comment would have been, “These guys that remixed those guys are the best. THE BEST.”
