Soothe the savage beast

  • Somewhere with You
    Kenny McChesney:
    The sense of urgency and longing in this song is captivating.
  • The XX - Crystalized

    Crystalized
    The XX: XX

    Understated delivery of lyrics against a persistant bass line = me likey! (*****)

  • Arcade Fire - Ready to Start

    Ready to Start
    Arcade Fire: The Suburbs

    Love the video for this; love the lyrics. Just loving it and the fact that they are from Montreal's even better! (*****)

  • Little Bribes
    Death Cab for Cutie:
    The chorus - love it - the imagery - love it. These guys. "...like a condiment. Tall in stature and exceptionally red." Seriously.
  • Magick
    Ryan Adams & the Cardinals:
    Rock out, baby! It's just a dang satisfying, slightly weird song.

Current picks

  • Margaret Atwood: Year of the Flood
    Disutopia, yes. Interesting portraits of women figuring out how to survive in said disutopia, yes. Mostly engaging, although some of the pseudo-religious bits were contrived and too long. (****)
  • Malcolm Gladwell: Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    Malcolm Gladwell: Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking
    Just started...hoping this makes me smarter and/or proves my inflated sense of super dependable "intuition" (****)

  • John Berendt: The City of Falling Angels

    John Berendt: The City of Falling Angels
    Not nearly as captivating as Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, but who wouldn't want to spend a little time in Venice? (***)
