i always loved the line about Michelle and "the towers in her mind" - "some women lie down with killers - my baby's not that kind"

Last I heard DCB moved to Cali and is writing screenplays. That’s been going on for a year or so.

I've never heard a good Silver Jews cover, and today is no exception, xp

Pavement did a great cover of “Secret Knowledge of Backroads,” if that counts!

just learned this week that the "laughed when I left, but in the end you only hurt yourself" line from How to Rent a Room was from a Sam Cooke song.

From Drag City News(adjust your shades accordingly):

American Water by Silver Jews was first released two decades ago. Observing the time between then and now, the album has been half-speed mastered at Abbey Road to provide depth and nuance for all future vinyl listeners - and current ones! Additionally, a cassette version of this timeless album makes its debut, to provide an alternative aural timestamp for intrepid audio voyagers who weren't there the first time around. You can pre-order both versions NOW for the 9/28 release date. American Water - here's to the next 20 years!

So we've got Purple Mountains now.

Walked to a record store today and bought a copy despite not owning a record player or having any friends that do. But I heard it on Downhill Swing. So, the song's about getting old, losing friends, and struggling with depression. References to long cross-country drives alone which seem to match up with some of the photos DCB's posted to his twitter recently. Not a theme I can personally get too excited about, but I trust the guy knows what he's doing and I suspect he's putting those feelings out there as a way offer a connection with anyone who might be dealing with the same stuff.

The music itself didn't do a whole lot for me, but I'm drifting away from indie rock these days anyway.
