Any rhymes for "Walla?"
I'm just giving a listen to Field Manual, the new solo CD from Death Cab for Cutie's Chris Walla. Hearing songs about something other than the singer's own personal life is always a turn-on for me, and Walla has got several tracks here that are obviously political without being heavy-handed. DCFC fans will be at home with the sound - melodic, but almost apologetically so, as if no one wanted to bother you. Read about how Homeland Security got involved in the CD's release in this Harp magazine Q&A.
