Buy (or download; I’m progressive) the new Fiery Furnaces CD. As sick as I should be of male/female guitar/drum combos by now, this one is just different enough to be interesting. “Don’t Dance Her Down” has been stuck in my head for days.
The Weakerthans write the coolest lyrics. I mean, “I must say that in the right light, you look like Shackleton…”? C’mon!
If anyone tells you that just because you like Cragganmore and Dalwhinnie that you’ll also like Talisker, don’t believe them. Lies. Lying lies. Told by liars.
