Find Me On:
word. so far around the bend is amazing.
No “City Middle”? it’s the most heartbreaking song in the National catalogue! Incredible melody, epic arrangement, lyrical imagery I’ll never forget, and that crushing line about alcoholism (“I think I’m like Tennessee Williams, I wait for ‘the click,’ I wait but it never kicks in”)…that’s their best moment I think
Agreed! I love that album, and the production on it is the best of any Spoon album save Kill The Moonlight, I think.
Pretty sure Jenny Lewis toured with them but didn’t do the female vocals on the album…according to Wikipedia it’s someone called Jen Wood. I don’t have my copy of the album notes here now but I think that’s right. Give the poor (unknown) woman credit where credit’s due!
