"Death of a Salesman", del Great Destroyer de Low (a la venta a fines de este mes, pero ya descargable en Soulseek). Es un disco raro, una tercio suena a los Low de siempre, otro tercio a carne de Best FM (en serio, pero se disfruta) y el tercio restante, donde Alan y Mimi descubren la distorsión, es magnífico. Esta es la más sencilla, sólo voz y guitarra (se me escapan algunas partes de la letra). Nomás por poder cantarla sin que se le quiebre la voz, el Sr. Sparhawk ya merece respeto.

So I took my guitar
And I threw down some chords
And some words I could sing without shame

And I soon had a song
I played it around
For some friends
But they all said the same

The said music is for fools
You should go back to school
The future is … in that

So I did what they said
Now my children are fine
‘Cause they pay me to do what I’m asked

I forgot all my songs
The words now were wrong
And I burned my guitar in a rage

But the fire came to rest
In your white velvet brest
So somehow I just know that it’s safe
