Are you kidding me? Out of nowhere, a duet of “Lost Coastlines” by Will Sheff with Carl Newman The New Pornographers. Will has performed a couple acoustic versions of this song recently, first on WOXY and then on NRK P3 (live from Norway), but I really think that having the second vocalist is half of what makes the song. I’m still a bit partial for their Motown-style bass and drums from the album version, but I dig the back and forth, and that Will switched places this time around. The original is below… How amazing is Jonathan Meiburg’s voice when he chimes in with that baritone “sit down?” The Stand-Ins, the appendix to last year’s The Stage Names, is out on September 9th.
I came really close to leading off this mix with Saloon‘s cover of Pavement’s “Shoot The Singer” before I realized that I had rocked that track exactly a year ago. Man, I used to get away with barely a description back then. Well in honor of that (and my hectic workload), I’ll sign off and let this month speak for itself. Enjoy.
