Music to Read By: California by Aislers Set

This song is lovely, though I'm not sure what it means.  I saw them open for Yo Lo Tengo in 2003 at the 9:30 Club, bought this album, "Terrible Things Happen," and have been enchanted by it ever since.  (Their performance of "Emotional Levy" was incredible.)  It's an otherworldly song, with vocals and instruments going places you're not sure of.  It's the unpredictable structure I try to replicate in many of my poems.
