Seeing as Chuck has stopped being on (hopefully only for the time being), I've started catching up on other shows that I've been meaning to watch. This means that I will probably finally get around to seeing The Wire, of which I've only seen about three episodes I think, but it's good so far. I also caught United States of Tara back when if first came on TV, whenever that was, and stopped watching after a few episodes because I had too many things going on. I'm almost completely caught up with that one now and I actually also heard a cool song on the show, which I thought I'd share with everyone.

Interestingly, United States of Tara also had a Bon Iver song in its eighth episode (this after Chuck has been featuring his excellent songs quasi-weekly). They used "The Wolves (Act I and II)" in a really creepy scene from the son, Marshall's Hell House re-enactment that involved an abortion, which was represented by some nasty looking chopped up liver. You're gonna have to see it for yourselves, but I assume you're sufficiently put off right now to not want to see it. It's a good show though so I suggest having a look-see anyway.

So on to the song that I wanted to post about. "That Knot Unties?" is by David Karsten Daniels and it's a really mellow folksy song. Listen and download here. It was used in a really lovely montage sequence at the end of an episode and it was sort of like a pretty ribbon that tied the whole scene together beautifully. Hope you like it.
