THE ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT HOUR
Elvis Costello and Bill Frisell perform "If I Only Had a Brain."
This is what I call The Attitude Adjustment Hour: The interlude between work and gin, er, home, when it's time to recalibrate the workday brain and relax, and nothing helps as much as the right music. It sets the tone and leads you to a cool oasis where you can remember who you are. Think about it. Better yet, listen.
"Teardrop" by Massive Attack, featuring Liz Frazer, formerly of the Cocteau Twins.
Dutch indie band Bettie Serveert perform "Palomine" at the Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf, Netherlands back in 1993. That's Carol van Dyk singing.
