But on to the topic of discussion!
So I'm guessing a good amount of you know Ben Folds, but I'm guessing not many are familiar with Ben Sollee. In a sentance, Ben Sollee is to the cello what Ben Folds is to the piano. A sort of vag-rock, with bass, drums, voice, and cello.

One thing that I love about Ben Sollee is that he doesn't push his instrument to the front. The cello is hardly noticable, just a very nice repetivie background figure, like drums or bass in most songs (including this one).
I don't really have a whole lot to say; I don't really consider this song a masterpiece due to its simplistic structure and overall lack of ingenuity, but it certainly makes for some nice listening.
(note: I was going to have Ghostland Observatory's 'Freeheart Lover' be song of the week, but I couldn't find it online. Still, I encourage you to go buy it, it's freakin' sweet).
PS: I'm going to try to put a quotation on every post from now one, just because I absolutely love quotations and there are so many good ones out there that few people know. So consider this also as an invitation: if you see a good quote, lemme know. Maybe post a comment. If I really like it, maybe I'll even show you one from my private stash.
