    No Name #3 - Elliott Smith (live)

    He basically never played this one live, even though it’s such a brilliant song. Thank goodness everyone was talking over it, right?

    It’s a dreary, gross Monday but there’s a new Nickel Creek song on youtube so the sun must be shining somewhere.

    "Young Fathers" - Typhoon (live)

    Now I’m as old as you were when you had me
    Should I be afraid?
    Should I start a family?
    Raise them in the wild
    because up against the city
    My love is such a small thing.

    One of the very best songs of 2013, from the brilliantly noisy 11-piece “indie symphony” that is Typhoon. I’ll post a full “best of 2013” playlist soon, but for now, just enjoy this passionately energetic live version.
