“Catherine de Barra, you’ve murdered my thinking…”

August 12, 2009

This is one of my all time favorite PJ Harvey songs, I love how angry/sad it is and how she expresses her rage or envy for another person. Whenever I feel some sort of angst, this song always hits the spot.

I’m on again tonight, and it’s the last show of the summer semester. Hopefully, I’ll be on next semester again at a similar time, but for now here’s some of my set. Listen in from 8 to 10 pm at KRUI 89.7 fm or online here.
