All The Things I Say, Yeah They're Just Lies

Roland Icking - The Same Woman (2006)

Sidi Ali - Saturday (mp3): Songs are effective apologies. Especially apologies for lies that were not actually lies. The poorer the grammar, the more vulnerable the banjo, the more repetitive the promise, the better. Sidi Ali has me, being an absolute sucker for a vocal sustain late in a song. When simply hanging on after the 4th beat drops sounds like pure genius.

hey -- where are the walkmen playing?? come to milw. and I'll take you to the borg ward collective. It is this new art gallery, performance art, music venue in the Fifth Ward. It used to be a funeral home. Now, they are putting the "Fun" in Funeral Home ... kinda like the arcade fire.

in the mp3 calendar, the date is always a link to the venue. in the case of the walkmen show, it's the high noon saloon. tell us more about this borg ward collective.
