Having nothing to say at present, I'll just post a boring list entry. My incuriosity is pathological, so perhaps a weekly posting of musical discoveries I should've made long ago will prove a useful exercise, in the intermediate run, at least.

Yeah, that's not very likely.


Björk, "An Echo, A Stain - Time to read Sarah Kane. (Sorry.)

Karen Dalton, "It Hurts Me Too" - I can't make great claims for this, but it can't be a good thing that I made it 99.7% of the way to 36 without even having heard of this highly talented and idiosyncratic singer.

Enrique Santos Discépolo, "Cambalache" - John Gray would sell his cat to be able to write something like this. It's due for renewed appreciation and popularity in the Anglophone world, surely.

Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, "Sour & Sweet/Lemon in the Honey" - As with their other recordings, it's heavy on the latter from each pairing, with slightly more than homeopathic quantities of the former. In their best songs--and this is one of them--that's no bad thing, and I defy you to name a song in which the movement of bees is evoked to more charming effect.

Future Islands, "Light House" - Brilliant lyric--and the vocals are nearly as good.
