From "July Flame." This is the closing track, which features Jim James (My Morning Jacket) on vocals. Sweet. Strong. Pure. Built to last. Good.

Laura Veirs - Make Something Good (mp3)

I like simple songs like this. Basically the message is "I Want To Make Something: Sweet, Strong, Pure, and Built to Last. It's going to take a long time, but it's a team effort and it'll be fine in the end." Kinda vague, but it leaves enough room for interpretation.

The songs has a nice little bounce, with pleasant string arrangement. This shows me that Laura hasn't gotten weary and lazy in her song writing.

Thanks for pointing out this song. It's been about 5 years since I've heard her last.

Thanks, man. I stumbled across your blog a few days ago and I'm curious what songs you'll be posting.

I have yet to listen to the older posts.
