One Year Ago Today...
GENEROUS PALMSTROKE


I've mentioned this several times in the past, so briefly - Last fall I was lucky enough to win a pair of tickets to one of Bjork's "secret shows" at Riverside Chapel here in NYC with about 100 other people. Of course every song was fantastic, but this one we hadn't heard yet, and it was amazingly dramatic in that small venue, with Zeena Parkins's powerful accompaniment to Bjork's incredible singing. I'll try to remember to put up an mp3 of the studio recording that was the b-side on Hidden Place here in the States, and I believe Generous Palmstroke was actually included on the British version of Vespertine. I find much comfort in her lovesongs, seemingly simple, amazingly complex.


so needy of comfort
but too raw to be embraced
undo this privacy
and put me in my place

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm

generous palmstroke
the hugest of hugs
undo this privacy
embrace

embrace me

embrace me

embrace me
