a note about this track

"Welch's melodies and vocals have a terrible beauty, or at least a compelling handsomeness. The way she braids her voice with Rawlings' — in harmonies so close you couldn't get a razor blade between them — creates something strangely sweet. More, Rawlings' guitar leads, which run simultaneous to her vocals, can have the breadth of psychedelic solos." -NY Daily News
