This is one of the many suprising entries on this year’s list – suprising to me anyway. I’ve always liked this record, and I’ve been playing it a lot recently. I just never realized how much I liked it, I guess. So, here it is! I really do love the sound of it – her voice, his guitar, the whole lazy, dreamy, thing. And, I love this guitar player’s sound and style. For instance, listen to that second clip (“Joy”), and then listen to this (skip ahead to 2:15 or so):
I = Theef!
In my defense, it did take me 15 years to recognize where I got that guitar bit from. I didn’t copy it consciously.
