...what I'm listening to (over and over), here is a smattering.
Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More. Treacle to my ears.
The Swell Season. Adore their sounds. Adore rewriting their lyrics.
Andrew Bird, Noble Beast. Whistling and violin.
The Decemberists, Picaresque. Good, and good again (ditto rewriting).
Band of Horses, Infinite Arms. Superb.
Sigur Ros, Takk. I'm in love.
Joshua Radin, We Were Here. He's singing at my wedding.
Ray LaMontagne, Trouble. As close to loving country as I'll ever get.
Madredeus, Ainda score. Portuguese brilliance.
A Fine Frenzy, One Cell in the Sea. For dance days.
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. Ditto.
Regina Spektor, Far.
