Bp's Song of the Week #91: Editors "Papillon" (live)  



Acoustic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0wHw9EH6Wc

“It kicks like a sleep twitch…”

To shake things up on their 3rd release, the UK rock quartet decided to tone the guitars down, way down, and bring in the keyboards to the studio. As a fan of their previous records this took me bit for me to warm up to. Tom Smith’s baritone voice makes him one of my favorite current vocalists.

There’s no long-winded essay or blabbering this week.

I started this on Monday and it was going to be short anyway, but then on Wednesday my week took a musical left turn (which you’ll have to find out about in next week’s note) and I didn’t get back to this.

I’ll let the music do the talking.
