Random Notes

"'Sometimes' was written at the very end of our time in the studio," says frontman Ben Nichols. "We only had a day or two left when I finally finished the lyrics.  In a way they are the most personal on the record. My family always seems to work its way into my songs. Fathers and brothers and ghosts."

Women and Work will be in stores on March 13th, but you can download "Sometimes" for free now.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
