in the red room

I love this song from 'You Forgot It In People' and this is a pretty cool version from Juan's Basement over at Pitchfork. Maybe one of the coolest basslines ever. And it must be like, noon, and the drummer is already drinking beer. My kinda guy. The album version is way more tense and sonic sounding but also subsequently more smashed and flattened. I like how the song breathes here - you can get inside of it instead of hearing it from the stands.

People say believe half of what you see

I'm guessing this is the solo vocal from the full-up version. So, yes, he's lip-synching, but it's still absolutely heart-melting in it's depth of feeling, and a mind-blowing display of vocal mastery.
