Always the ones that you least expect

OMG they're getting divorced!
This morning I wrote an Exclaim! news piece about Tracey Thorn‘s upcoming album, Love and Its Opposite. In writing the story, I became rather taken with the disc’s lead single, “Oh, the Divorces!” A heartbreaking, percussion-less ballad, it pairs stark piano chords with baroque string fluorishes as Thorn complains about the ubiquity of modern divorce.

As a child of divorce myself, this song hits pretty close to home. I feel like I’m eleven again! Daddy, don’t leave!
