the best dreams are the wet dreams

so, i was listening to the new daedelus album, exquisite corpse (crazy amount of reviews here) and was really struck by "welcome home," featuring mike ladd, but couldn't figure out why. then i realized it's like an american version of fennesz's "transit," with david sylvian, off of venice. both very specifically deal with their respective continents lyrically (ladd: "I watch South Park, clutch the sofa, quake and tremble, welcome home" /// sylvian: "all those names of ancestry, too gentle for the stones they bear / somewhere, someone wants to see you / someone's travelling towards us all"). and much more importantly, are just great songs.

check them out and decide if i'm crazy or not (get them now, they're on yousendit and will only be up for a week!)
