I’ve got another week off work with this chest infection. It’s really not too bad though, it just makes me sleepy and gives a few other odd side effects such as a strange tendency to over-analyse scenes from “Before Midnight” and to spend too much time plotting a green revolution. I even joined the Green Party. Hmmm.
Anyway, I’ve told you about all those cool books I’m reading every night, and here’s a little mix of songs to go with it to keep you going over cold January days. Let’s call it “songs to drink cocoa to”, some old and new things to keep you warm! You need to click the links to listen though and watch the videos – mostly live versions.
Fun Home “Wasting Time”
Sun Kil Moon “Admiral Fell Promises”
Corrie Tucker Band “Kill my Blues”
Hiss Golden Messenger “Drum”
Broken Bells “Holding on for Life”
Spiritualized “Life is a Problem”
Norah Jones “After the Fall”
Mudhoney “I don’t remember you”
The Julie Ruin “Oh Come On”
Thurston Moore “Detonation”
Memphis “I Want the Lights Out After Dark”
Rural Alberta Advantage “Edmonton”
Kingmaker “Ten Years Asleep”
The Welcome Wagon “American Legion”
That last song gives me goosebumps every single time….see you soon xo
So, from someone fairly obscure in the EP of the year to probably the biggest, at least most well known, singer of the past 50 years or so. This “interactive video” is fun and different, and although I was tempted by the uber-cool futuristic Broken Bells and I love all those flashy post modern David Bowie videos in the end I thought I’d give my little award to please all the Bob Cats out there. Click on the link and flick through all the channels and see what you can find.
Next week – Single of the year.
