Band Of Horses

Band of Horses' Infinite Arms is on heavy rotation right now and "On My Way Back Home" has got me something aweful.

On my way back home, by chance I thought of
All my favorite songs, where I'd gone wrong
The only words that I could think of
I'm pissing my life away in the form of a song
On my way back home

Every step, a victory it was
I was cheating death, just in time I woke
My memories start to wander off
Come to me, the remembrance of
On my way back home

I came in this way and here now I'll stay
If the unknown have to wait one more day
There's often times that it comes out wrong
But luckily I, I got a mind to know
On my way back home

Side note: I'm really taken by their album covers - simple yet quietly exquisite.

Everything All The Time

Cease To Begin

"I'll give you somethin to remember like the Alamo"


"Rhymes Like Dimes" live.

One of the greatest Doom cuts ever recorded.


I thought I had a mental grip on Doom lyrics but Mos Def must have an exceptional memory for verses.

"After that they couldn't find a villain like Scooby"

Bonus Mos Def Lyrical Memorization Skills -

He reanimates Black Thought's "75 Bars" effortlessly - crazy.
