I really don't know. The best way that I can explain it is that when he rhymes "awful" with "jaw full," it somehow works...and that's a lot like how you post.

Master and Everyone is such a mood specific record. Put it on again this morning, and man that thing takes me to a very specific place. Maybe it's a place some people wouldn't be comfortable going back to time and again, but I love it.

It's a sad record, but it's warm and comforting, somehow. Really captures that lonely holiday feeling. But the good kind of lonely. The kind of lonely that comes with a fireplace and a tumbler of bourbon and the knowledge that someone you love will be home soon to break the feeling.

Somebody had sold sealed copies of some recent BPB 10" singles at Cactus. So I picked one up yesterday, but I'll probably order the other one from Drag City so some other fan can find the copy at Cactus (plus, it's fun getting packages from DC.)

When I went to pay, the clerk laughed to himself and told me that he's the one that put those two on the shelf. He already owned both singles, but got second copies for free through some Drag City promotion or something. Nice of him not to hoard.

Are any of his records not mood records?

And for the love of God will someone acknowledge his cover of Lanegan's Sunrise?

Aside from Dust and some of the vocals on Songs For The Deaf, I don't know that I've ever really listened to a Lanegan song.

No idea. Master and Everyone, the song on the Garden State soundtrack and the video Reid posted earlier are the only things I've heard by the man.

You should listen to Sunrise by Oldham then (with the Soulsavers); I think it's absolutely majestic...really wish he'd take on that style for an album. I think he's an absolute genius.

Now Here's My Plan is in my top two records of the year.

At least three of those songs are better than the originals.
