I'm a little lacking in affect today. Probably from more or less unsuccessfully fighting off a stupid virus. But anyway, the rocky music I've been craving of late just isn't doing it for me today.
So! Damien Rice. Always the right answer. This song in particular, "Blowers Daughter," really shows off his voice. Which I could listen to all day. If he were to read the phone book, I'd sit at his feet and listen attentively.
Anyway, I think he really does melancholy like no one else. Everything on O is really good, but I have a few favorites. This chief among them.
