Bill Frisell - Unspeakable (lala)
Spoon - Transference (lala)
Bill Withers - Still Bill (lala)
Flying Lotus - "Computer Face/Pure Being" (via Pitchfork)
Broken Social Scene - "Work Sick" (via Pitchfork)
Still Bill is the 1972 wellspring of the eternally stellar "Use Me" and "Lean on Me," but Bill Withers + harp + strings is pretty hard to beat
except if you replace that harp with a wah-wah guitar way in the back and a tambourine right by your ear. All the other music listed above is good 'n' all, but they seem like a waste of valuable time that could be spent listening to Still Bill instead. Who are all these other songs, and what are they to you anyway, dad-gummit?
The camellias are raging full-force in case you are keeping track.
