I finally got around to buying the Dark Was The Night album. I know, I’m slow. I listened to it probably 1800 times at Micah’s, and then came home and had to have it. It’s the best thing since sliced bread, I tell ya. It’s hard to choose favorites, but here are a couple stand-outs, from a very helpful person who put a lot of the songs on youtube.
Grizzly Bear “Deep Blue Sea”. Leans more towards Daniel Rossen’s Department of Eagles sound, which of course I’m down with.
The Dirty Projectors & David Byrne “Knotty Pine”. Man is this song fun.
Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver) & Aaron Dessner “Big Red Machine”. Hauntingly beautiful.
Sufjan Stevens “Your Are The Blood”. I love the new sound. Holy crap. Billy loves the Buck 65 remix even more and constantly asks me to put it on. Also good.
