I carried a torch for Ed Harcourt's music in college. I think he should have gotten more recognition Stateside, his songs were so lovely in that singer-songwriter, turn of the new millennium way. The albums I wore out in my Honda Civic's CD player were as follows: "From Every Sphere," "Here Be Monsters," and "Strangers."
I'm writing about Ed today because I saw him listed on this encyclopedic list of Christmas songs from indie/alternative bands, and I had to check it out. Merry Christmas if you celebrate! Hope your week is going well so far, I for one can't wait till Sunday.
