LYRICS: The National

“This Is The Last Time”

I’ve been revisiting the latest album from The National for the past few days. If you haven’t listened to Trouble Will Find Me, it’s definitely work checking out…and it’s got a neat vibe for this time of year. Track #7 really beautifully describes the concept of returning to someone (or something) that’s less than healthy for you…something I think everyone can relate to.

“Oh, when I lift you up you feel
like a hundred times yourself.
I wish everybody knew
what’s so great about you. Oh,
but your love is such a swamp.
You don’t think before you jump,
and I said I wouldn’t get sucked in…

This is the last time.”

The National

Here’s another track from the new tUnE-yArDs album Nikki Nack, which comes out on May 6th…as usual, Merrill Garbus treats us to an experimental sound like nothing else:

NEW: Rosanne Cash

“A Feather’s Not A Bird”

I’m so delighted with how much I’m enjoying the latest release from Rosanne Cash. It’s always nice when an artist you previously overlooked starts to really grab your attention. This second single from The River and The Thread has such a nice groove and a catchy hook:
