DW’s Nicest Album Credit Yet
Here’s a good reason to buy a physical CD. Everybody gather ’round. I’d been listening to and loving the new Ben Fold Five album, “The Sound of the Life of the Mind,” but listening to it online. Back in the spring, Ben and I got together for several days to play music, listen to stuff, and talk. We didn’t write any songs, but a lot of good talk happened, partly about his upcoming BFF album, and partly just telling tales and comparing notes about being musicians. Anyway, the other day I went into Amoeba Music and bought the album, and was delighted to see this credit in the insert. “Philosopher.” I’ll take it.
