Anya Marina – “Move You”
Thought this was an appropriate song to get the week moving. Kinda slow to start, but then it kicks it up a notch.
OK Go – “This Too Shall Pass”
Can I just say how effing brilliant this video is in all it’s Rube Goldberg machine glory. Go on, watch it a couple times through. I think my favorite part is when the song cuts away and the music is replaced by clinking glasses. Oh, and the song is pretty good too.
Blind Pilot – “Go On, Say It”
There’s a definite vein of music that I listen to that while not county, has a tinge of twang to their sound. Blind Pilot fall into that vein, and if you like this song, I strongly recommend picking up their album since it’s one that I can listen to from beginning to end, rinse, repeat.
Throwback Thursday? Maybe I’ll make that a thing, although I was just in the mood to listen to a little Jayhawks after checking out the anthology that they recently released which includes this song.
Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons – “Born Again”
I’m going to repeat myself from above – tinge of twang but with a bit of folk, a dash of rock and a handful of gospel. Incidentally, I started and ended my day with this song, with the latter being a live performance at Rudyard’s. Again, this is an album that I would highly recommend, in fact, I’ve bought it twice…seemed appropriate to pick it up on vinyl seeing that Friday was my 33 1/3 birthday.
