    Hymns to Uncertainty 

    Translated from the French, by myself from a post by DJ Barney @ La Blogotheque.

One Merriweather Post Pavillion that finally finds itself, against all odds, amongst the discs that I’ve most listened to and loved this year. Thus, there’s much to do: instead of just schlucking it wholesale on a “Best of the Year” list.
