MP3 of the Week/Song of The Day
This post is inspired by an amazing film that the whole family saw on Saturday night called The Illusionist. The film is about magic - the art of illusion - and its simply fantastic. I am not going to say more because you just have to go see it.
And both records have songs about magic on them.
M Ward's is about a girl who disappears. It's a very short song, less than 2 minutes in total that seems like it was recorded live (on a studio record?), but it's a great song and classic M Ward.
Ben Kweller's song is longer and features a really excellent guitar/drum beat throughout the whole song. I love the way Ben sings this song. Again it's the girl that is magic.
