Today's Song - Fall Apart - Northern State featuring Kaki King
Comments - I had read a lot about Northern State a few years back and intended to get their first album but never got around to it. Phrases like "the female Beastie Boys" intrigued me (although I thought that the moniker had already been taken by Luscious Jackson - but I digress). Anyway flash forward 5 years or so to early 2008. I was rooting through a box of my buddy Doug's extra CDs (he's in record promotions) and I come across the Northern State album "Can I keep this pen?" To my delight the whole album is really good. It turns out that it was produced by Ad Rock of the Beastie Boys (Adam Horovitz). The album has a pretty cool feel to it and is pretty eclectic. My only regret is that the version that I snagged from that box is edited for radio. I may go out and find the original at some point. Anyway this song is the last on the album and is kind of slow and very relaxing. I highly recommend you give it a listen.
