Strange Acoustics: Sail

I love this epic Cinematic Pop version of Awolnation's Sail.  It features a full symphony, choir, and soloist Spencer Jones. It's an interesting take on the original rock version, and I love that Spencer Jones posh voice is such a contract to Awolnation's Aaron Bruno's rougher, edgier vocals.

In the long dusks of summer we walked the suburban streets through scents of maple and cut grass, waiting for something to happen.Steven Millhauser, Dangerous Laughter

Muse of the Day

Hot weather opens the skull of a city, exposing its white brain, and its heart of nerves, which sizzle like the wires inside a lightbulb. And there exudes a sour extra-human smell that makes the very stone seem flesh-alive, webbed and pulsing.―Truman Capote, Summer Crossing
