"Another Night In" and "Rented Rooms"

>> Friday, July 23, 2010

Maybe it's a side-effect of listening to The National so much lately, but something put me in the mood to post some classic Tindersticks for y'all.

"Another Night In":

And why not a two-fer for Friday (and because I'm indecisive)? "Rented Rooms":

"Maybe it's a side-effect of listening to The National ..." I assume you're not talking about CBC News, The National. What are you talking about?

No, no: the band The National, whose latest album High Violet I'm playing a lot these days.

Earlier this month I posted the official video for "Bloodbuzz Ohio" and a live version of "Lemonworld", if that helps as reference points. I cannot say enough good things about that album, which has a dark vibe similar to Tindersticks, among other things.

Ahh, you mean The National band whose "official" website is called American Mary for some reason, an early album name I assume.

I really thought you were talking about a radio show or something, but then I'm and old fuddy-duddy who hasn't listen to anything new since the Fab Four broke up. Though this weekend I saw a great show by Michael Franti. His show at the Calgary Folk Festival was the most fun I've had in the last year, maybe longer.

Ack! I hope I didn't sound bitey in the last comment! No, I'm just enthusiastic for the album and want everyone to listen to it.

Apparently The National's website name is a reference to an early song and they never thought they'd be successful enough to change it.

Not familiar with Franti, but the stuff on his website sounds pretty neat. Glad it was a good show!
