“Bring me close”
I ran across this song while watching the Olympics. It was featured in a fruit of the loom commercial, and it’s just pure gold.
I first heard of Mindy when I was listening to Dance/House music. Kaskade sampled her song “eyes”. If you haven’t heard it you should, It’s amazing.

Hurts to Purr
A kind of reset. I’ve tried to resume uploading music to the blog, and have had a few failed restarts. I’m making no promises going forward, but I’m trying.
“It’s a perfect day for a Matinee….”
This is a beautiful tune. I’m a sucker for the warm tones of a lone piano. Nothing is too overdone in this song, and it just hit me right. I hope you enjoy.

“You make it real”
I stumbled onto James Morrison tonight while browsing around Spotify. After listening to the CD version, I dug around on the interwebs and found an acoustic version that I liked better. I usually like acoustic takes better. I was listening to his raspy voice, and the ease with which the music flows from him, and knew he was perfect for the blog here. There’s just so much soul emanating from this guy. He’s everything I wish I could be as a guitar player and singer. He’s so much more than just this song, though. Listen to some of his other stuff too.

“Twice I turned my back on you….”. I’ve turned my back on you guys more than twice, sadly.
Hello again! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. I’m trying to revive the site. I hope you’re excited. I’ve got some really good music planned for posting.
I really do love this song, and I thought it was appropriate for my return. Little Dragon is trip-hop, if you couldn’t tell. This song has been rolling around in my head for quite some time, and I’ve always known it was perfect for the website. Enjoy.

Perfectly beautiful melancholy. This song has touched me, and will haunt you. This band holds a special place in my heart.
If you like the falsetto of the likes of Bon Iver, This is a MUST hear.

Every culture everywhere he has been, people seem to simply get it. They get the pentatonic scale. It doesn’t have to be taught. This is a fun example of what makes neuro scientists tingle all over.
See for yourself:
“Whistle of a distant train”
Perfect music for Sunday (or any day, really), but it seems especially appropriate for a rainy day like today.
Ed Harcourt reminds me of Jeff Buckley in this song for some reason. It probably has something to do with his emotional/uneasy vibrato. It’s also what I love about the song.
There’s real passion in this number.

Adele. Oh how I love your voice.
The beauty found in this song is complimented by voice. Her pitch and dynamic control is amazing. Hear for yourself in this song (below). The piano arrangement reminds me of a couple of songs already posted on this website. Namely “Everyday” by Carly Comando, and “The art teacher” by Rufus Wainwright.
You should buy this CD, if not for this song, for her rendition of “to make you feel my love” that she performs so flawlessly and brilliantly.

“No Envy, No fear”
Having seen this man in concert, I can tell you he has a passion for music. Everything he performed was ethereal.
I heard this song for the first time last week, and have been sitting on it like a man who finds a piece of gold. I didn’t want to share it with anyone for a while.
Now, here it is. Buy this CD. There’s a link below.
