Those old guys who do the Breakfast at Sulimay's series have weighed in on These Are My Twisted Words. What's not to love about cute old people talking about current music? The fact that they confuse the song with the also recently released Harry Patch (In Memory Of) only makes them more endearing.
Thom's slightly less famous brother, Andy, joins him on a track for the compilation Ciao My Shining Star: the Songs of Mark Mulcahy. The album, featuring songs covered by the National, Michael Stipe, Frank Black, Dinosaur Jr and more, was compiled to aid the former Miracle Legion front man following the sudden death of his wife last year. All for the Best, the track covered by the brothers Yorke, is quite beautiful and wonderfully restrained. Do take a listen. Buy the album. You'll get karma points in addition to new music.
