Something Older: Chris Bathgate - Buffalo Girl

Being musically unsatisfied can be very unsettling. I deleted half my inbox, scourged my itunes, and nothing sounded like what I needed. Until Chris Bathgate's 2007 album, Throatsleep, came up. I forgot how this song makes me hold my breath as though it was my own lost and confused heart he was singing about. And god damn his lyrics for being so poignant.
"'Cause I'm a fumblin' fake and a fuckin' fool
And that's why I can't fall in love with you
And why to and fro
Are all I do" 

And then there is my favorite track from his new album Salt Year, "Poor Eliza".
