The thing that makes your eyes glitter isn't always gold dust. So says Justin Currie, anyway. Gold Dust is track #8 on this week's Jalpuna Radio playlist. It's a superb track from an album he released last year that I completely missed. I found it on iTunes recently and have been absolutely hooked.
The real gem this week is "Your New Twin Size Bed" by Death Cab. The lyrics are superb - but they're also really sad.
You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed.
With a single pillow underneath your single head.
I guess you decided that that old queen holds more space than you would need.
Now it's in the alley behind your apartment with a sign that says it's free.
And I hope you have more luck with this than me.
...I love it - but oh what a picture that one paints.
