If it is true, if you have come to the rescue
Why do the bells sound of danger?
Words of peace, they fall from you freely
Awful free for a stranger

Setting sun, you know you ought to run
There's a wolf here among the sheep
But marching along to the spirit catcher's song
You remain in a dreamless sleep

Desperate eyes
Let the counterfeit suffice
Hoping high
They will be kind to you

Fog and fears and a mouth full of hot tears
Can drown that voice sent to guide you
And wicked tongues with their hooks
And their ice blood
Can wake the demons inside you

Doubt will creep through the windows as you sleep
Setting in like a cold cold front
Your hands go numb and your stomach doubles up
And you think, was I happy once?

Desperate minds
Hold the counterfeit so tight
Hoping high
They will be kind
Hoping high
They will be kind
Hoping high
He will be kind
To you

Run run run run
Run run run run

Really?  Electric guitars, piano, and a drum kit at a Renaissance festival?
 This Renaissance Festival goes to eleven!

That's nothing my grandparents had the same blanket when I was really young. Like some thing around 1954-60.
Did you take it from them?
 
Any Canadian can tell you that's a Hudson's Bay blanket. Very common.

Had to read that line once again to realize it was not about "fantastic breasts and where to find them".

 
 

Sex is popular because it is centrally located.

Great band name, describes our country at the moment, but it will pass.... 
Even better song name.

Thank you for this comment, as a fellow Canuck was about to comment the same thing

That's like comparing Apple and pears

I hear the Sarah Slean in there.  No complaints though - I was unfamiliar with Alison, but this is a great song.  I like it.

"she photographs well". I like that one. Think I'll steal it, as it seems safe in these sensitive times. (you wouldn't want to risk saying someone is attractive)
 
Tip from the UK: "I like your trousers" instead of "Nice arse." :)

Interesting listen to boot.
Interestingly, A Fine Frenzy is not the name of the band.  It's the name of the singer.

That's a beach towel but, as the kids say these days, whatevs.

Reminds me of my 7th-grade Latin teacher, Miss Keith. All the boys did very well in Latin that year...   {#Hearteyes}

Thank you for the pic.  Attractive.  I have to listen to more of her work.  Can't rate quite yet.

You're right about the goat thing... Not in a good way...

Saw a livestock trailer on the interstate with a sticker on it that said "Caution! Showgoats." Made me nervous. I have no idea what they are capable of.

I hear the goat thing in the vocals, but in a good way. :-)

 
Maybe there's an animal adaptation of "Showgirls"...

My parents lived in a former-farm-turned-rural-development. There were a few belted Guernsey cattle for show...and then someone decided to bring in a herd of Tennessee fainting goats. Yes, if this breed of goat gets stressed too much it will drop to the ground like it's been shot. People came from all 'round to see and try that trick for themselves. Eventually, the farmer/developer had to hide the goats because they were so stressed out. Maybe he should have charged admission...

Don't think I'd describe it as depressing, without passion or ugly... Not sure what your cup of tea is, but I like passionate redheads, so get over it and find a new song to complain about.




:augie

Clearly inspired by Fiona Apple as well. Not that I'm complaining.

Good song from a very good album, which I bought after hearing the opener "Pinesong" on RP. I like the many moods the album touches on from melancholia to optimism, without sounding too bi-polar.

Oh god please no. The cruelest of fates. Cut off my ears or her tongue before that. 
I liked it.

Like the song title.  It reminds me of a wise saying from a co-worker: "If you don't want anyone to p!ss on your parade, don't give away the parade route."

Lana del Rey? I'm hearing Shirley Bassey coming in loud and clear. She definitely doesn't do blankets.

I know. Radio Paradise is about music. This is not a hair salon! And to the guy saying he preferred her red and not blonde... Really, It's not like you had a chance either way. She's almost certainly not interested in you, and we're not interested in your preferences. Creepy really.  ;-)

I think I like this better than the stuff from her first album, which I initially liked and then got bored with. Sometimes it takes a while for artists to find their mojo. Not everybody hits it out of the park on the first or second album.

At a certain age, lots of women go blonde.

Indeed, not 100% but close.

Except she's been around several years longer...

..should we notify Interpol?..
On 4th listen... we're going...up. your. stairs! 7 - 8! Her vocal commitment impresses.

i definitly agree ... long time no hear by the way ...
 
 


I think she's starting to sound like Amanda Jensen, at least in a few parts of this song.
Not impressive to me.  Seems formulaic.

Looks like a Hudson's Bay blanket to me. Hey! How'd YOU end up with it? :o)
Her voice is changing as she gets older. Not sure it's a good thing.

Rumor has it that she once played Red Rocks in Colorado, and when asked what she thought of the State, her reply was something like "I can't wait to get out of here". Hopefully that was not a comment on Colorado. Not endearing. 
 
I went to see Johnette Napolitano (Concrete Blonde fame) at the Pageant here in Saint Louis and she started of her set with, "So this is Saint Louis!? ... Sorry." Kinda took the whole experience down a few notches just for the comment, for me.

Bill (or Rebecca), you seem to be willing to give AFF more slack than I. Yes, she's lovely and a fine singer (Frenzious, even), but I find her songs catchy at first, then tedious at long last.

Edit: When did she go from red to blonde?
