Lover, You Should’ve Come Over

About a year ago, I was seeing a guy who my musical re-education upon himself. As a result, I could throw out any number of indie rockers of various prestige, popularity and pretension, but the point is somehow, this fellow skipped over Jeff Buckley.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when a friend and I were stumbling around the East Village and found a girl as lost as we were. Eventually we directed her to her final destination – Sin-E – before meeting up with our host/tour guide at Delancey Bar. He happened to be about a degree away from both Elliott Smith (who I love) and Jeff Buckley (who I as yet didn’t know) and told me about the latter’s disc, “Live at Sin-E.”

Jump to this week, when I finally got it together to listen to the disc. And although I’m trying to direct this post away from being a shameless plug, its incredibly difficult. I feel as though it would be silly to refer to “Live at Sin-E” as a virtual topography of his neighborhood but by gum, it is: the songs are as long as a leisurely stroll down some of the super long blocks, the lyrics themselves are familiar but original and at the end, you just feel at home. So yes, check it out.

    Funny, my boyfriend’s band has another show at SIN-E next week and whenever they are there (or at Arlene’s Grocery for that matter) we can’t help but think of Jeff Buckley and that album.

    Have you heard “Ours”? The singer has a very Jeff Buckley inspired sound that you might enjoy.
