Song Currently Blowing Your Mind....
« on: Jan 13, 2011, 09:28 PM »
Thanks to ALady and other forum folk I decided to check out Beach House.  VERY glad I did.  It's up there with the National and Deerhunter from last year for me.  Every song is epic, but this one is just killing me.........

So glad I came across The Fling bc they were an opener at a recent show. This album has flown near the top of my 2010 ranks after just a few listens.

Blowing my mind, but for reasons unrelated to the song itself.

Iron & Wine - The Trapeze Swinger (live)

Please, remember me
Happily
By the rosebush laughing
With bruises on my chin
A time when
We counted every black car passing
Your house beneath the hill
And up until
Someone caught us in the kitchen
With maps, a mountain range,
A piggy bank
A vision too removed to mention
And

Please, remember me
Fondly
I heard from someone you're still pretty
And then
They went on to say
That the pearly gates
Have such eloquent graffiti
Like 'We'll meet again'
And 'Fuck the man'
And 'Tell my mother not to worry'
And angels with their great
Handshakes
But always done in such a hurry
And

Please, remember me
At Halloween
Making fools of all the neighbors
Our faces painted white
By midnight
We'd forgotten one another
And when the morning came
I was ashamed
Only now it seems so silly
That season left the world
And then returned
And now you're lit up by the city
And

Please, remember me
Mistakenly
In the window of the tallest tower call
Then pass us by
But much too high
To see the empty road at happy hour
Gleem and resonate
Just like the gates
Around the holy kingdom
With words like 'Lost and Found' and 'Don't Look Down'
And 'Someone Save Temptation'
And

Please, remember me
As in the dream
We had as rug-burned babies
Among the fallen trees
And fast asleep
Aside the lions and the ladies
That call you what you like
And even might
Give a gift for your behavior
A fleeting chance to see
A trapeze
Swinger as high as any savior
And

Please, remember me
My misery
And how it lost me all I wanted
Those dogs that love the rain
And chasing trains
The colored birds above there running
In circles round the well
To where it spells
On the wall behind St. Peter's
So bright on cinder gray
In spray paint
'Who the hell can see forever?'
And

Please, remember me
Seldomly
In the car behind the carnival
My hands between your knees
You turn from me
And said 'The trapeze act was wonderful
But never meant to last'
The clown's that passed
Saw me just come up with anger
When it filled with circus dogs
The parking lot
It had an element of danger
And

Please, remember me
Finally
And all my uphill clawing
My dear
But if i make
The pearly gates
I'll do my best to make a drawing
Of G-d and Lucifer
A boy and girl
An angel kissin on a sinner
A monkey and a man
A marching band
All around the frightened trapeze swinger

Na-na
Na-na-na
Na-na
Na-na...

On a real Church binge at the moment.  For anyone that love guitar driven pop/rock with a dash of psych check this clip below out.  I can't get enough of it.  Then go buy a greatest hits and realise they are one of the greatest bands to completely fall through the cracks.  Apart from Under The Milky Way they're pretty much unheard of.  Even in Australia they have pretty much gone unnoticed for the last 20 years...

This is Tantalized from their performance after being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame with a 60 piece orchestra.  Fucking phenomenal...

The Church Tantalized - ARIA Hall of Fame 2010

And if your interested in seeing one of the great acceptance speeches, you tube "The Church" and "ARIA Hall of Fame".  You wont regret it, funny, funny, funny stuff...
At my house, we call them uh-ohs.

SB, I fucking love the Trapeze Swinger as well.

I've been on an Iron & Wine kick leading up to seeing them live last Friday.  Here are a couple off the new record that I just can't get enough of:

Iron & Wine - Walking Far From Home

You guys need to get in on the I&W thread!!  Trapeze Swinger is one of my ultimate favorites by Sam.  It's masterfully written, so reflective, and it puts a lot of things into perspective on the whole life and death scale

Modest Mouse - Blame it on the Tetons

Came on shuffle, listened to it probably 20 times in the last few days.
Sometimes when I get in my zone, you'd think I was stoned, but I never as they say, touched the stuf

Perfectly said, I'll have to find that thread.  I think Kiss Each Other Clean is one of the best albums I've heard....ever!

Ever since that dumb/hilarious video popped up on youtube with the sexy saxaphone man, I can't stop listening to Careless Whisper.
don't rock bottom, just listen just slow down...

If anyone is going to write a song about Cus D'Amato and Mike Tyson, why not the Felice Brothers?! Not my favorite album from them, but this song might just be my favorite of their "rowdy" songs already

The Felice Brothers - Cus's Catskill Gym (Live at SXSW)
