Daily Download: "Oil in the Fields," Paul Duncan

Published December 16, 2005 8:01AM (EST)

This is a hushed and mournful song from Paul Duncan's quietly insistent, bewitching second album, "Be Careful What You Call Home." This song, like the album as a whole, meanders dreamily without ever quite feeling unfocused or lazy, in part because there are so many finely wrought details and precious moments to keep you diverted as you drift through the music. "Oil in the Fields" is the album's best track, but also available for download is opener "In a Way."
