Since 1978's Music for Airports, Brian Eno has been releasing instrumental records that imagine electronic music as an opium den, leaving rock to his production clients (U2, Coldplay). Small Craft is something different: a rhythmically aggressive Brian Eno album. "Horse" features fearsome electric guitar, and the thrashing end of "2 Forms of Anger" reminds you that Eno helped invent glam, punk and No Wave. Awesome to hear him get rowdy again. Now, is a tour too much to hope for?

    “Bird on a Wire”

    Leonard Cohen | 1969

    While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
