Today, in incongruous mashup news

“Never entertain the taste of the red”

A strong contender for most ridiculous music video ever filmed. Killer tune, though.

“It comes right from the streetlights you know”

I love Neko Case’s talent for crafting perfect little self-contained gems like this. Every part of this tune is perfect and forms a flawless facet with every other part. The bass line, the trumpet flourishes, and Neko’s inimitably dextrous vocals and bare lyrical styles. All brilliant.

“Y’all motherfuckers need jesus”

“She’s a mystic in the sense that she’s still mystified by things”

“So pity me, Garuda”

The revelation of Judge Holden

“He appeared upon the rise and paused momentarily before starting down, he and his drooling manciple. The ground before him was drifted and rolling and although it could be fairly reconnoitered from the rise the judge did not scan the country nor did he seem to miss the fugitives from his purview. He descended the ridge and started across the flats, the idiot before him on a leather lead. He carried the two rifles that had belonged to Brown and he wore a pair of canteens crossed upon his chest and he carried a powderhorn and flask and his portmanteau and a canvas rucksack that must have belonged to Brown also. More strangely he carried a parasol made from rotted scraps of hide stretched over a framework of rib bones bound with strips of tug. The handle had been the foreleg of some creature and the judge approaching was clothed in little more than confetti so rent was his costume to accommodate his figure. Bearing before that morbid umbrella with the idiot in its rawhide collar pulling at the lead he seemed some degenerate entrepreneur fleeing from a medicine show and the outrage of the citizens who’d sacked it.” – Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian

“And it feels right, ’cause it feels like all the weight of the world”

The new single from local Seattle band The Weather (formerly Campfire OK), “1983”, off their upcoming third record. Waters Electric is out sometime in early 2015.

Happy New Year!
