"The Dark End of the Street," The Afghan Whigs (James Carr cover)

Everything I wrote today leads back, in one circuitous way or another, to this band.


"My War," Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (live on KEXP, 2011)

Call it blasphemy, but I love this version even more than the original.


The house became full of love. Aureliano expressed it in poetry that had no beginning or end. He would write it on the harsh pieces of parchment that Melquiades gave him, on the bathroom walls, on the skin of his arms, and in all of it Remedios would appear transfigured: Remedios in the soporific air of two in the afternoon, Remedios in the soft breath of the roses, Remedios in the water-clock secrets of the moths, Remedios in the steaming morning bread, Remedios everywhere and Remedios forever.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, from One Hundred Years Of Solitude (via rustbeltjessie)
