“Carried to OH Swarm of Bees”

 

Description from Eeka Mouse: I was driving to work Friday morning in a snowstorm when the most amazing song came on the radio - compelling, intense, riveting. I'm so glad stations post their playlists online because the weather was too bad for me to make a note of the title/artist...

The song is 'Bloodbuzz Ohio' found on the album High Violet, by the National. Don't be put off by the name of the song - give it a listen.

Don't take my word for it - from a NY Times article on the band (4-23-10): "Michael Stipe, the lead singer of R.E.M., told me that when he took Mike Mills, R.E.M.’s bass player, to hear the National perform in London, it took Mills only half of one song to exclaim, “This is the most amazing thing I’ve heard in years.” Stipe explains: “It’s instantaneous. It touches you.” "

    Very cool pick, Eeka…I love the way you placed the components! I, too, love REM, and will have to listen to that song. BTW, my name is actually Deborah, and its meaning is “the bee”!

    Wow, thanks for sharing that, Mary! I’m gonna check them out because you have me curious now and I think I’ll trust REM’s judgement when it comes to music! :)

    Thought I’d pop in for a minute – I like this pick! The bees are so cute. I also like REM, and finding artists that aren’t in the “pop mainstream” is one of my favorite things! (Check out the Black Ghosts or MuteMath some time.)

    Hmm, I detect a pattern here… like to bead, like R.E.M… (double hmm, will we be seeing R.E.M.-based FPs?)

    Thanks Deb, had no idea Deborah meant ‘bee’.

    Well, they say you learn something new every day (even if it’s a useless piece of trivia about the meaning of Deborah)! I’m much more interested in finding out just how many of us are REM fans, and hearing that song! :D
