Lookie here! Over the Rhine's song Born was on the last scene of BONES on fox. I've never seen the show. Anyway, OtR is getting more recognition. Good, because they deserve it.

Good album. I suggest you take a listen, all you sufjan stevens/over the rhine/jeff buckley/pedro the lion fans out there. Firstly, the songs are spacey; kind of etherial. Makes for very interesting elaborations. There's a fair amount of stuff that plays around with electronica, which I think I really enjoy. Not the full blown electronica, but the stuff that's based on well-written melodies, really cool hooks and the like. The melodies are simple, and stem from the folk and surf guitar lines. It also helps that these musicians are easy to respect. So I raise my glass to you, Tim and Jeff. I hope you enjoyed this album as much as we all did.

So, there's another show on Archive.org of over the rhine. From Dec. 10th. It's very good recording quality, taken from the soundboard and audience mics. If you listen to anything, listen to "White Horse" and "Trouble." The link to the site is in my links sidebar thingy.
If you were wondering, Linford is a "Son of a Preacher Man." Makes more sense when you realize that, eh?
