Neat Tracks / The Kills “Nail In My Coffin”

By Amanda DK

I have wanted to write about this track – this album – since I first got an advance copy (humblebrag, sorry) just before I caught the band at SXSW this past year.  At the time the only song off Blood Pressures that bloggers were allowed to disseminate was “DNA.”  The full album was released on April 5, 2011.  How the heck did it become September already?

Storyteller Series: Villagers “Becoming A Jackal”

Some songs tell stories just as vivid and intricate as any film or TV show. The Storyteller Series highlights those special pieces of music with lyrics that captivate the audience from beginning to end.

When I first heard Becoming A Jackal, the debut album from Villagers, I certainly appreciated it as thoughtful, intellectual and poetic, but I have to be honest: I wasn’t really moved by it. I used “Home” as part of a selection of songs I put together for The Needle Drop in May, but after that the album sat in my iTunes library dormant.

Then I had the pleasure of hosting Conor O’Brien in my office this past July.
