The Xx - Heart Skipped A Beat

I finally got around to listening to the album xx from the band The Xx. And yes, its worth a spin. Their song "Heart Skipped a Beat," floored me when I heard it. I think the following youtube video is fan-made, but its decent and not too cheeky.

Please don't say we're done
When I'm not finished
I could give you so much
Make you feel, like never before
Welcome, they said welcome to the floor

It's been a while
And you've found someone better
But I've been waiting too long to give this up
The more I see, I understand
But sometimes, I still need you

Sometimes, I still need you

I was struggling to get in
Left waiting outside your door
I was sure
You'd give me more

No need to come to me
When I can make it all the way to you
You made it clear
You weren't near
Near enough to me

Heart skipped a beat
And when I caught it you were out of reach
But I'm sure, I'm sure
You've heard if before

Air Studio Visit

The Guardian has a look at Air's new studio. This week, the French duo released their album called "Love 2." Haven't had a chance to hear yet, but I'll be on the lookout for it.

Avett Brothers - The Perfect Space

I wanna have friends that I can trust,
that love me for the man I’ve become not the man I was.
I wanna have friends that will let me be
all alone when being alone is all that I need.
I wanna fit in to the perfect space,
feel natural and safe in a volatile place.
And I wanna grow old without the pain,
give my body back to the earth and not complain.
Will you understand when I am too old of a man?
And will you forget when we have paid our debt
who did we borrow from?

The first half of the song is perfect. I really love (and dare I say..yes..identify with) the lyrics. But that's only the first half of the song. For whatever reason, the second half ramps up the tempo for 30 seconds. Could have been perfect without part 2, imo.
