1. Scissor Sisters “Paul McCartney” (Matthew Perpetua)
2. Martha Wainwright “Love Is A Stranger” (Emily Gould)
3. Electrelane “The Valleys” (Heather D’Angelo)
4. Silver Jews “How to Rent A Room” (Mark Richardson)

I was going to post the text of what I read last night but it’s handwritten and involves a lot of stage directions like “(now imitate the thing Martha does with her leg)” so I might just not do that.
