In the light of the devastating earthquake in Haiti yesterday I found myself listening to Kimya Dawson’s 12 – 26 about the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. As with most of Kimya’s music, it is a beautifully simple, stripped piece of folk. The lyrics are haunting.

When we’re complaining about 4 inches of snow in Britain, it makes you think about what happens when 3rd world countries are hit my such natural disasters.
