secretly (or, maybe now, not so secretly), i love alt-country-folk music - corny, i know, but i do. the jayhawks, spirit of the west, the decemberists, scattered trees, and of course, the old 97's. their songs embody the feeling of driving across the southern US at twilight in an old truck, windows open, music loud. and that rhett miller isn't too bad to look at either - having toured as a solo artist with tori amos and neil finn just adds to his appeal.
the acoustic version of "designs on you" is even better than the studio version. lyrically, it is one of my favorites. why can't i write poetry like this? guess we all can't be born musically or poetically inclined.
