Donny & the Lark
Deer Bird Bear Ship 2009 via Friction Records
a note about this track

Band members Kertis Lytle, Jared Wekenman, Sam Hutchinson and Ric Carroll layer warm synths, airy keys, bristling guitar, churning bass and complex rhythms with a true sense of purpose and aural space, where no note—no matter how off-the-cuff— sounds out of place.

The Very Best of Elvis Costello & The Attractions 1977–86 1994 via Rykodisc
a note about this track

Costello has never revealed who this is about. In the liner notes to his Girls Girls Girls compilation album, he wrote, "Much could be undone by saying more." The line, "My Aim Is True" provided the title for the album.
