Dammit - I am finding a bar and I plan to slow dance to Patsy Cline
Dark Dark Dark - “Patsy Cline”
RIYL: Regina Spektor, Feist, Fiona Apple
Dark Dark Dark’s new album, Who Needs Who, doesn’t officially come out until October, but because the band is just so nice, they sent preorders out early. I knew as soon as I heard “How it Went Down” that this would be one of the best albums of the Fall, which is proving to be more and more true each time I listen to it. Specifically, “Patsy Cline” is making its way up my list of favorite songs of the year. Everything about the track - the vocals, lyrics, and the delivery - is simply beautiful in the most classical sense. Dark Dark Dark have written the essential piano ballad of the season.
And I thought we’d meet up in a week or two, and we’d slow dance to Patsy Cline at the bar
Photographs by Lee Jeffries.
“Black and white photography is powerful and emotional. UK-based photographer Lee Jeffries proves this point with his spectacular shots. While he began his photography career taking pictures of sporting events, he soon found out that it wasn’t his calling. “A chance encounter with a young homeless girl in the streets of London,” his website shares, “changed his artistic approach forever.” From that moment on, the homeless became the subject of Jeffries’ art. The models he enlists are not famous celebrities or sports icons, they’re those he meets on the streets.”
