MP3's Of The Week

I've added a new feature to largehearted boy: interesting, yet odd songs that often have a tangible relationship to me. This week there are two:

"St. Swithen's Day" - Ben Gibbard. Originally released by British songsmith Billy Bragg, this song is given a warm solo treatment by Death Cab For Cutie and Postal Service frontman Ben Gibbard in a Seattle 2002 performance.

"Dooley's Junkyard Dawgs" - James Brown. The godfather of soul shouts and grunts his love for Georgia football (4-1 at the moment). This song always brings to mind the sights, sounds and smells of tailgating around Sanford Stadium with 82,000 of your closest friends.

oh yeah - unrelated question - how's the new outkast album - they play the one song on bbc6 and i really like it - saw the video recently. uh - how offensive are the lyrics (being a dad and all, i gotta ask)

Mike: The new Outkast is extremely listenable considering each CD was produced independently of the other. The language isn't that bad (of course, I have little radar for this, my womb is barren). BBC6 has been playing a lot of the new GBV album, I like it, but not enough to play it too often.

Rob: Thanks, I'll try not to disappoint.

Brad: Please do link me... I love your site, by the way.
