a lot to say, new music, etc

So I just returned from Lifest and have a lot to share- some new discoveries some amazing music from some established faves, (OMG, OtR!), so I think it will come piece by piece. But first I just got an email saying that CHARLIE HALL'S new album, "The Bright Sadness" will be coming out August 19th!!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!! I just love his stuff, I am definitely writing that one on the calendar...

Almost Lover

I really like this song, some great images, beautiful sound, and poignant without being TOO sentimental.

Just today I was wondering if the title and main idea are in any way related to Emily Dickinson's phrase of "fleshless lover," which would make it even more interesting. (sourcetext!!!)

Both of those thought led me to ask people (mainly to Morgan since she's the one person I appear to influence via blog) what songs they would put on that CD, you know, that's part heartbreak and part trying-to-get-over-heartbreak.

Off the top of my head comes "Real Good Friends" by Blessid Union and "Last Tears" from the Indigo Girls.
