A friend of mine (guitarist in the Swiss band Mañana) gave me some stuff by Bright Eyes. Several tunes have caught my attention while I work and listen to the music in the background, the most recent one being "Gold Mine Gutted," with its wonderful opening lines:
It was Don Delillo, whiskey neat,
And a blinking midnight clock
For me, right now, it's Bright Eyes, Ardbeg neat, and a computer screen.
