On this week’s roundup . . .
. . . no time for jibba-jabba, on to the music.
Vagabon – The Embers / Cleaning House
Great, moody indie rock from New York City that should appeal equally to fans of The Cranberries and Cold Specks.
RIYL: The Cranberries, social disobedience, good music, sharks
David Keenan – James Dean
Quality Irish folk here, courtesy of a wonderfully irreverent e-friend called “egg” over at Faithless Street.
In her words: “This guy you’ve never heard of is great.”
She’s not wrong…
Brandi Carlile – When We Were Young (Adele cover)
There’s an intro in the video below about War Child, an organization helping victims and refugees affected by war. You can learn more about War Child here and learn more about Ms. Carlile’s charity album here.
Come for the great cover; stay for the line “I curled my hair for this shit.”
Slim Freedom – Landslide (Fleetwood Mac cover)
Wow. Just wow.
Hopefully more to come from Ms. Stevenson very soon . . .
Jon Batiste – Blackbird / What a Wonderful World
More wow, care of Mr. Batiste.
Jonah Blacksmith – Daughter of Jonah
Outstanding Scandinavian indie folk here, pairs exceptionally well with your Sunday morning coffee and
newspaper cell phone newsfeed.
Read up and purchase some goodness from these guys here.
Until next week, cheers . . .
