Four for Friday

What do to after you’ve had your mind blown by my man N.T.? That’s easy… take in some great tunes.

Been a good music week, so let’s get to it.

Blue Scholars – Cinemetropolis // Title track from their brand new album.

Bon Iver – Calgary // Vernon and company have been working on a new album as well. Here’s the single they’ve released.

Pinback – Sherman // My nearly hitched friend introduced Pinback to me a few years back. I’ve been a fan ever since.

Canopy Climbers – Break // Another friend turned me on to Canopy Climbers last Sunday and their songs have been the soundtrack for the better part of my week.

See you next Friday! Unless, of course, the world ends tomorrow.

Four (covers) for Friday

Schools are closed today in anticipation of snow.


I think we are forecasted to get an inch of snow. So on this day that it will be impossible to leave your house, here’s some music to pass the time.

First Aid Kit – Universal Soldier (Buffy Sainte-Marie Cover) / First Aid Kit is a couple of Swedish sisters (20 years and 17 years old) doing the folk thing.

Bon Iver – Come Talk to Me (Peter Gabriel Cover) / Got this song from my brother-in-law. Bon Iver and Peter Gabriel? Too much goodness in one place.

Lissie – Bad Romance (Lady Gaga Cover) / I realize that having anything “Gaga” on here is shameful. Just shameful.

J.Period & K’Naan – Relationships Lay (Bob Dylan Tribute) / Not a cover per se, but you know… K’Naan.
