    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on December 12th, 2008 (All posts by )

    Lisa Marr‘s first band was the unspeakably good all-girl “cuddlecore” band Cub.

    Some devoted fan has put up a MySpace page.

    There are six songs on there.

    “Secret Nothing”, “Someday”, “New York City”, “Everything’s Geometry”, “Pillow Queen” and “Magic 8 Ball”.

    In my current intoxicated state (drunkblogging!) I can only say these songs give me intense happiness.

    Your results may differ.

    These songs are all part of my internal architecture at this point, I have listened to them so many times.

    If I must pick one, I would say, listen to “Everything’s Geometry”. “A plot of land and two shovels, we could dig a grave … .”

    Sad and happy at the same time? The back-alleys of the human heart, how odd they are, how inexplicable the twists and turns, how closely the artist has mirrored and echoed our own half-regretted paths … .

      drunkblogging is only partially recommended

      I tend not to check my sources as carefully

      but it is more “to the point”

    2. Dan from Madison Says:

      Friends don’t let friends blog drunk. Put down the keyboard Lex, I will take it from here.

    3. Lexington Green Says:

      Dudes, I am so embarrassed.

      (Ha. Actually not … .)
