Today’s feature song is from Elbow, a band that’s always hung around on the periphery of my favorites list. They are the type of band I realize released a new album about 1-2 months after it initially hit shelves. At the same time, the CD purchases never leave me disappointed.
This song was my first exposure to the band and it’s done a remarkable job of holding up over a number of years. Introduced by a friend I worked with during the Cities 97 days, I can remember checking the band out live at the Fine Line in downtown Minneapolis and coming away very impressed. Good stuff indeed.
“Newborn” – Elbow – Asleep in the Back – 2001 (officially released in the UK; US didn’t occur until 2002)
