Nina adds something very essential to each song, and she dose it without taking away from the original composition. And guess what, the sound she creates is just as relevant today as it was when she recoded them.

And one day you might find yourself wanting poetry, for the company it keeps, or as a friend, as a guide, or a whisperer that tells you stories in a soft telepathic voice that gives you answers to questions which you haven't yet asked. You might need poetry in the form or a word or a sentence that could save your life, maybe you're like me, leaning into a sound from another time, it could be a Greek chorus, or a sound from the future that enters you as a conversation singing about the wisdom of fools and the nakedness of youth, or maybe because of some hidden agenda that underlines your restless dreams, you desire poetry which turns the magnetic polls of emotion inside of you like an unseen hand so that there is a opening, thank you, just large enough to see into,... maybe. And yes, it is this uncommon poetry with a steady gaze, whose soft hints of understanding and questions of embrace curves and smoothes that which suspends our tangled lives.

"Underachievers Please Try Harder " is a must have. I tend to use the first track "Suspended From Class" when introducing my friends to their music. Camera Obscura the focus of "Underachievers Please Try Harder" is primarily the uncomfortable parts of love and the bitter pills of relationships. The songs give voice to the awkward unspoken feelings between partners, yet the vocals and compositions are up-tempo and very sweet sounding, the sort of stuff that makes you dance like Snoopy in your bedroom. The production is excellent, trumpet, mandolin such punctuating, extending and lifting up heavy themes which in the hands of another band would come of depressing and emotionally deviating. But my favorite element of the lighthearted sound of "Underachievers Please Try Harder " is the cleaver rhyming through out, such as "I should be suspended from class I don’t know my elbow from my arse".

Green Rocky Road is as close as we’ll ever get to hearing the record Karen Dalton would have made in 1963. Discovered on the same reel-to-reel tapes that yielded the live performances comprising the Cotton Eyed Joe release, were nine home recordings of Dalton left alone, with no one watching, no audience to please. Accompanied solely by her own sturdy banjo picking and 12 string strumming, her deep blue, smoky-throated singing evokes the voices and faces of past lives lived – the broken-backed pioneer, the coalminer black with shadow, the stained fingers of the slave, the prostitute…the dead and forgotten. Karen was perhaps the last true folk singer and that’s the bases of the potent appeal of her enigmatic art and of her commercial failure during her too-brief lifetime.

A star-studded tribute concert to one of the world's must under-appreciated singer-songwriters. Not every song from the movie makes into onto this collection, but with songs done by Rufus and Martha Wainwright (joined by their mother and aunt, Kate & Anna McGarrigle), Nick Cave, Beth Orton, U2, Jarvis Cocker and others, it's a terrific album filled with jems.

"I'm your Man" had just been released and it was an instant hit through the entire Nordic country. Me I didn't get it at all, and tried to understand what the dry appeal of Leonard Cohen music meant to all the shop keepers, artist and oil workers of the North Sea. Well I can't say that I ever found an answer for the Cohn fever that took over Norway that year. It was many years later wile watching the movie "Natural Born Killers" that I began to get infected with the Leonard Cohen sound. "Natural Born Killers" featured a wry apocalyptic dance tune called "The Future" I went out and got a copy of the album of the same name, and that's when my strange relationship and admiration of Mr. Cohen's work began. Noteworthy Track: The Future Waiting For The Miracle

Through collections of interviews, essays, and photo stories HoBO interviews celebrities, and other media figures Bla, bla, blah. Me, I like the name of the magazine, I look forward to each issue to see how much hobo/nomad concepts are injected into their editorial. Oh and HoBo is green. The magazine began printing on 100% recycled, 100% post-consumer waste, chlorine free, and ancient forest friendly paper in their Fall/Winter Issue #7 released in 2006 with two covers; Robin Wright Penn and Christopher Walken. HoBO's cover is printed on 100% recycled, 50% post-consumer waste, chlorine free, and ancient forest friendly paper. It is the first magazine to exercise the option to publish their magazine on recycled paper in North America, and it is also speculated that it is the only magazine to initiate this action in the world. Hobo prints their magazines using New Leaf paper; a national paper merchant dedicated to environmentally responsible paper. They use recycled paper made with post-consumer waste and bleached with out the use of chlorine or chlorine compounds, resulting in measurable environmental benefits.
