Four for Friday (the 13th)

Sort of pressed for time today, so this is going to have to be quick.

First, none of these songs have anything to do with today being Friday the 13th. I’m simply noting that it is in fact the 13th.

Second, I realize that I didn’t supply the music goods last week. While I don’t think I have legally breached any any contractual obligations with you, I understand that we have something of an informal agreement. I post music, you listen to it, your taste in music improves, and then when we hang out (like that ever happens) you and I can enjoy the same music together. Everyone wins. Love wins.

Third, I’ve used up all my time for any sort of commentary on the songs themselves. The tracks will now be posted comment-less.

Manchester Orchestra – Apprehension

matt pond PA – Lovers Always Win (feat. Ariel Abshire)

Teddy Afro – Hab Dahlak // Thanks Jacob.

Other Lives – For 12

And as penance for missing last week…

Blue Scholars – John DeLorean

Four for (a snowy) Friday

So you probably should have seen this coming.

That’s right, songs about snow.

What sets these songs apart is that you don’t need snow to appreciate any of them.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Snow // Ok, I know that this song isn’t really about snow. Who cares? “Hey Oh. Listen what I say oh.”

Matt Pond PA – Snow Day // Something we’ve had a few of around here lately.

William Fitzsimmons – Covered in Snow // I never miss a chance to fill your ears with more of “The Beard.” Mr. Fitzsimmons deserves an honorary doctorate in #Blife.

Sleeping at Last – Snow // This song comes from their intriguing “Yearbook” project. You are getting the added bonus of the video for two reasons. One, it’s really good. Two, it was edited by my brother-in-law.
