Ever since I saw Matt Wolf's incredible Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell in Sarasota, I've been dying to get my hands one of the tracks that plays early in the film. The newest reissue of old Russell material, Love is Overtaking Me, is being released by Audika Records on October 28th, and it has the song that I've been dying to hear for many, many months. You can stream "Close My Eyes" at the Audika Records MySpace page. I've been listening to it pretty much non-stop for the past twenty-four hours and I don't see myself getting tired of it anytime soon. I have a ton of digging to do with regards to Russell's incomprehensibly eclectic back catalog, which I promise to do if, and when, I ever make it past this song.

    WORLD OF ECHO and ANOTHER THOUGHT are both gold. You can't go wrong with either. His music is so incredibly intimate and private, I almost feel embarrassed listening to it, which, for me, is about the highest compliment you can give any music.
