listening to autumn

Have you downloaded Over the Rhine’s latest (double) album Meet Me At The Edge Of The World yet?  If not, do so immediately.  It is absolutely, perfectly fall.  These two really are the original cool!  With this album I feel like I’ve been let in on something personal and intimate.  Most folks I know (couples or not) have inside jokes and language that characterizes their relationship.  (Anyone who has had to spend time with the hubs an I knows this fact annoyingly well.)  Talking to the WSJ about the album’s title Detweiler says, “‘…when the fog rolls in [at their Ohio pre-civil war home], we used to say we felt like we were living on a farm on the edge of the world.'” And with this latest set of music, I feel like they’ve let us in on a little secret about their home…and ultimately their lives.  (Listen to a little bit and read the full interview here.)
