Posy Songs

At long last, some floral songs. Sorry for the extended absence. Without veering too much into the land of the personal blog ('cause I don't roll like that), I'll say that there's a serious illness in my family, which has kept me away physically and mentally. There won't be a super-sunny outcome, but at least for now, the situation is stable. So I will try to get back into the swing of semi-occasionally writing about music, new words, gnomes, and such, usually whilst adding songs and/or photos that are semi-related on at least some tangential basis to the topic(s) of the post or at least amuse me. If I recall correctly, that's roughly how it usually works around here. Oh, and sometimes a post consists of just songs and/or YouTube clip(s). Ah, yes, it's coming back to me now... whew.

Might review the new Rilo Kiley album soon... I will withhold comment until I've listened to it all the way through, several times. This is me, not commenting at all. And "no comment" is not a comment, so there.

Posy-related songs:

Owsley - Coming Up Roses (on Owsley)

Nico - Roses in the Snow (bonus track on CD version of The Marble Index)

The Mr. T Experience - She's Not A Flower (on Yesterday Rules)

Yo La Tengo - Black Flowers (on I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass)

Michelle Shocked - Blackberry Blossom (on Arkansas Traveler)

The Teardrop Explodes - Poppies in the Field (on Kilimanjaro)

Buried Beds - Camellia (on Empty Rooms. They mean "Camellia" as in the woman's name. It's still also floral! It's one of 3 free MP3s available at the band's website )

Mirah - The Garden (on Advisory Committee)
