Half Asleep or Worse

Catherine Murphy - Comforter (2007)

When I first downloaded this new album by Diamonds (for free) and listened to the opening song "The Waking", I was struck that its power is in the changing. Instead of two separate songs, one of 2:28 and one of 2:12, the power is that this song is only one, of 4:40. The familiar blankets of slow waking here are also blankets of endless hope and joy. I wonder what fabric softener they use.
