I have no idea why, but... musically, this is what I'm craving today.
When I first heard it, I was disappointed by Yeasayer's latest album, Fragrant World. But, over time, I've become more and more hooked on it. While their previous CD 'Odd Blood' was a brilliant album, Fragrant World is more a collection of some great songs. It takes a bit more time and effort to get into, but it's really worth it. Both of those disks are available at the library. They're at my library, anyway. And they're definitely worth checking out.
Oh, and "Alanis? Really?" Absolutely. Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie was an underrated album. It's such a shame she lost her edge since then. I'd love to hear more along the lines of 'Would Not Come.'
