Sea Wolf "Black Dirt"

Remember when you fell in love with John Vanderslice or the National? You'll be seduced by Sea Wolf too.

"Black Dirt" begins as a folk song sang to on a stormy night, transforming halfway through into rock number performed from death (I know this sounds sappy, stick with me). The song documents an imagined murder committed over broken promises and lies, but the song makes a promise of its own:
"But my heart no longer beats
My blood makes black dirt under your feet
Black dirt will stain your feet
And when you walk you’ll leave black dirt in the street"
"You're a Wolf", which has become popular amongst bloggers, is, like "Black Dirt", a love story gone wrong. If this is any indication of Leaves in the River (to be released September 25), I'm going to love it.

Irving - I Can't Fall In Love

Sea Wolf is a side project of Irving's Alex Church. I've only recently discovered Irving's 2006 album Death in the Garden, Blood on the Flowers (their 2nd), and have been enjoying it a great deal. Irving's myspace.

    You're a wolf is quite possibly my song of the year. Good pick, and cheers for the reference to Irving... I'll check them out too

    Wow. Thank you. You are adding pleasure to this world. I salute you. I now have one more legitimate reason to not kill myself. I hold those dear.
