Wolly Mammoths Mighty Absence

The Microphones - Wolly Mammoths Mighty Absence (from a japanese import of ‘Recorded Live in Japan’ )

This version of this song went a little further than most songs manage to get inside of my head. I have played it over and over a million or so times and for good reason. Its just a great song, simple as that. The recording of it on this random live japanese import version of his Live album all recorded in Japan sat unassumingly at the end of the album as one of the ‘bonus’ tracks for that version of it. I picked it up at a live show a few years back and I mention this because you cant get the song anywhere else. Their has been other versions of this song recorded including one stripped down version on his album ‘Dawn’ but the timing of how he sings the song is just not quite right in my mind on that version. This specific recording somehow lands in that mystical world of perfection and I’m not sure it will ever be captured in that way again. Or maybe its just me. Also, here is the version of the song for you to enjoy and the iTunes link to the newer recording of the song on ‘Dawn’. (The player here is hopefully temporary until I can get it tweaked to fit my desires)

iTunes Link (pleas note that the itunes version does not contain the song I’m talking about here but it is the rest of the album which is great too in many ways. Check out the song Great ghosts, so very good.) • Artist Site
