Don’t pretend like you haven’t missed it. I know you have. This is the “live show” edition of Four for Friday. Two of these artists I’ve seen recently. One group I plan to see soon. And it would be great if K’naan came to Little Rock sometime, but I’m not holding my breath. Enjoy.
Matisyahu – Tel Aviv’n // Had the chance to see him about a month ago. Lots of fun!
GRiZ – Smash the Funk // I went with a few friends to see this guy open for Big Gigantic a couple weeks ago. Honestly, one of the most interesting musical performances I’ve ever witnessed. Whether you like it or hate it, as one of my friends said, “this is the direction music is heading.” Yup.
Bear Colony – Flask Retort // They’ll be at the Rev Room in about a week.
K’Naan – Is Anybody Out There? (feat. Nelly Furtado) // Not local.
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.
K’Naan – Wavin’ Flag (Celebration Remix)
This post is in honor of my dear friends, Bobby and Amy Harrison! They have just become parents, and I want to wish them all the best.
This song/video is so very appropriately chosen to commemorate the moment.
Bobby loves soccer… and this song is the official anthem for the 2010 World Cup. You’ll be hearing this song a lot round about June.
Amy loves Africa… and the singer is Somali-born K’Naan.
Abe’s birth is truly cause for celebration!
