Song of the Week 5/7/09

I spent Sunday afternoon trying to come up with songs for a couple of mixes, and I stumbled onto a 2009 album I had forgotten about already -- Doves' Kingdom of Rust. The UK trio have made two amazing albums (2000's Lost Souls and 2002's The Last Broadcast) and one good one (2005's Some Cities). I've written about my love for this band a few times over the past nine years, so there's no need to repeat myself here. I'll just say that the title track to Kingdom of Rust fit perfectly as a transition between two segments of a mix, so a couple of folks will be getting to sample Doves in their mailbox soon.

BONUS: This video is, well, kinda moving.
