Listening to…


…”New Slang” by The Shins.  Really good.  It’s a bit Cat Stevens meets The Beach Boys’ish.  Going to look up some of their other stuff but I’ve been informed this song is not typical of them so maybe I’ll be disappointed.  We’ll see.

Also listened to “Am I Wrong” by Brand New.  “Soco Amaretto Lime” is still my favourite Brand New song but this is really nice…so mellow.

  2. This song has now taken over as my favourite Brand New track. It’s sooo mellow and moody…

    Well I talk too much
    To myself
    And I turn my back on my faith
    It’s like glass
    When we break
    I wish (i wish) no one in my place

    And I’ve seen
    You don’t need their seeds
    When the cut goes in deep
    And i’m lost in sleep

    I can’t stay
    In this place
    I can’t stand
    When the room turns round
    On my fate
    I give no guarantees
    There’s no promise
    I can keep

    I can’t stand
    I can’t see my way
    I feel blind
    On my feet
    I can’t stay too long
    Am I wrong?

    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck

    I’m so tired
    Of my mood
    And sleep comes
    With a knife, fork and a spoon
    You’re so pale
    In your face
    You let
    Life get in your way

    And I’ve seen
    You don’t need their seeds
    When the cut goes in deep
    And I’m lost in sleep
    Am I wrong?

    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
    Goodbye, lay the blame on luck

  5. I’d rather hum. You wouldn’t like me if I sang.

  6. Oh yes, and The Shins…I’ve had a listen to some of their stuff and I’m not keen so New Slang is probably a one-off.

    I’m not sure they’re popular over here. I listen to the radio in the mornings and all I hear is Paddy Casey, U2 and Dana……
