More free music from M. Ward's lovely upcoming record "Transistor Radio": "Big Boat" is a pounding piano rocker, Jerry Lee Lewis-style. Download it here. I've gotten enough appreciative email about "Fuel for Fire" that I'm sure plenty of you will want it.

An addendum to what I wrote last week about "Fuel for Fire": Reader Knox Bronson points out something I'd missed, that the song is clearly very closely based on Kris Kristoffersons's classic "Help Me Make It Through the Night," recorded by everyone from Patsy Cline to Elvis Presley to, most illustriously, Engelbert Humperdink. I'm partial to Willie Nelson's version.
