Narrow Stairs by Death Cab for Cutie

September 10, 2008

Narrow Stairs by Death Cab for Cutie is a nice album to mellow out to.  I’ve been listening to the CD enroute to work and back and find myself wanting to listen to the album over and over again.  Irritating if you’re a passenger in my car, but hey, I’m a sole commuter so nobody has to listen to my obnoxious reptitious playlists.

As with most music I find it hard to articulate what I like about it.  There’s something in the instrumentals, something in the vocals, something in the lyrics, etc.  I guess what I like most about Narrow Stairs is that it’s not something I’m accustomed to listening to yet, yet I find myself humming.  It’d be a good soundtrack in the background of my life right now.  In the midst of change but still in the same place.

In other music news I found that My Bloody Valentine is on tour again!  While in a fit of finding stuff on youtube and playing the whatever happened to…game we came across this information.  We were actually watching some footage of Lush and Miki Berenyi. Yes, I know I’m living in the past when it comes to music.

    Rock band 2 is going to feature Lush’s “Deluxe”! Yay! Here’s a link to their complete song listing

    *sigh* I’m itching to play those songs, but I don’t own a playstation. Hey maybe we can convince our consortium to buy it and have a rock band librarian night! What do you think? Then if we get really good we could compete in the Dave and Busters rock band competition.

    I like tracks 7-9: Grapvine Fires, Your New Twin Sized Bed, Long Division. All in all this album is cohesive and easy to listen to.
