Song of the Day 8/28/09

Looks like where we’re going tomorrow there won’t be any internet access. So here’s Friday’s song, a day in advance, as our top 666 songs of alltime countdown continues all the way to #1:

334. Boris Grebenshikov – Real Slow Today

This lush janglefest is its centerpiece, a thoughtful reflection on how revolutions begin, from someone who knows a little something about that firsthand. The link above is a torrent of the whole album.
