Everything’s comin’ up David Berman! Just last week, Berman announced that he’s making new music under the name Purple Mountains and debuted the lead single from his forthcoming self-titled album. This is the first new music we’re hearing from Berman since he retired the Silver Jews project in 2009.
As it turns out, a Silver Jews song was recently featured on The Good Fight. Brooklyn Vegan points out that the CBS All Access series, used “How Can I Love You (If You Won’t Lie Down)” in a scene between the show’s star Christine Baranski and Michael Sheen. As the sleazeball lawyer Roland Blum, Sheen comes onto Baranski by singing the opening lines: “Fast cars, fine ass/ These things will pass/ And it won’t get more profound/ Time is a game/ Only children play well/ How can I love you/ If you won’t lie down.”
