National Eye - "ag1"

Enough has been said about the drawings of children being somehow more honest than the work of any great artist. We don't need anymore stories about how it's healthier, and cheaper mind, to cook for yourself. It's no longer news that people ought to be good parents, at least at first. But it seems National Eye have the rare ability of being able to breathe new life into things I thought were 'tired'. Group humming, little pieces of backwards music, big decisions. I want to go on a trip with National Eye, to some brown mountains, windy roads. [Buy Feb. 14th] [Promotional Podcast]


Don Edwards - "Coyotes"

In a similar way to one of those change shakers that separates coins, you need to separate the obvious 'old cowboy dies' story and rather uninspired guitar picking from the extremely effective Whoo-Yip, Whoo-Yip, Whoo. This is from the film Grizzly Man which, however, should not be distilled in the same manner. The film, with all its own imperfections and unsightly possibilities, should be drunk like milk, not savoured, but something you check the glass after to make sure you got it all. The film and its best song are in counterpoint. Like the smartest kid in class is also usually the dorkiest. [Buy]

Wow. This does not sound like Thompson singing at all. Is it really?

Posted by Hillary at January 26, 2006 10:22 AM

No, it's Don Edwards! Oops. I don't think Dan will mind if I fix the error.

Agreed. Very nice song..."carry something."

oh weird, sorry. 'composed and performed by Richard Thompson' was a dirty lie on the cover then.

Grizzly man is a great movie. Its amazing how obsessed that man was. I feel bad for laughing at it because he is dea, but some parts are hilarious.

Im glad you posted this song, its been stuck in my head for forever. ive been searching for it. finally i can listen to it over and over until its out of my head.

Awesome, I thought the pilot was playing like a song he had recorded, this is amazing.

After seeing grizzly man, which for I and my friends was a life changing experience on part with the epic acid trip of all epic acid trips, we became incresingly obsessed with this song. Don's coyote yelps could be heard rining through the tree's every day after dinner. There was a rap worked out that never got recorded, though We got the beat. Iit's real weird to see this up here now.

Googled "whoo yip whoo yip whoo" and it took me straight here. Thanks for posting it. Since they re-played Grizzly Man tonight on Discovery Channel, you may get many more searchers.
