ALL THE DO-LONG DAY
Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.
Adam Torres - "Mountain River". The man sets up his easel near the green river, by the wagging willows, under the blue sky, and he gets to painting. It is difficult work. His plan is not to capture the scenery, the sunlight, the lazy breeze: just to paint a square of water, running river water, as it passes by. He spends the first hour smearing colours on his palette, blending them, choosing a hundred hues. Then he stares hard at the water, and begins to paint, and stares hard again, and he can't get over the small thin fear that if he stares too hard at the river he is going to tumble all the way in.

YELLOWTEETH - "Temporary Father". Mint, vodka, responsibility, nostalgia, fatherhood, hockey cards, Sandy Denny, cranberries, back-hoes, challah, roof-slate, moxy, the downtown core: just throw it in the blender. [buy]
