we swim with sharks.

...and fly with aeroplanes out of here.

Cat Power is my current trying-to-go-to-sleep music. "Lived in Bars," off of The Greatest (2006), is in particular one of my favorites. This somber track features Chan Marshall's deep airy vocals set to a building backing band. I am attracted to the doo-wop aspects and backing vocals, which take the track from a tortured mood to a more upbeat jazzy tone.
