    Also, this is me ribbing Rufus a tiny bit. I honestly think that there has been good and bad music/film/art in every age. We just look back on the past as though it were special.Report

  2. A wonderful song, but two and a half years old now. What is Elvis Perkins up to, and will we hear new music from him any time soon?

    Elvis Perkins is an appropriate artist to feature at this particular moment: he is the son of Anthony Perkins and Berry Berenson, and his mother was among those who died on American Airlines Flight 11 when it was flown into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. To some extent (not altogether), his first album “Ash Wednesday” is a response to that loss. Even without that connection, it would be a brilliant record. With that connection, just now, it is particularly poignant to listen to. Your readers should seek it out.Report
