The Messrs. Craft


The Messrs. Craft

Published on July 6, 2009

The first and last bit are from a song called “Sunder” from the album permafrost by Jersey Turnpike (it’s a lovely album)After that you’ve got “Roadrunner,” by Papa M and “Triangles and Rhombuses” by Boards of Canada (late-nineties style on those two). There’s a Erik Satie snippet in there and “Can’t Return (for the Last Time)” from the Synecdoche, New York soundtrack.

I ran across the Ellen Craft story twice recently, most powerfully in James McPherson’s Battle Cry of Freedom (which turns out to be a good audio book, incidentally).
