Sigur Rós – Góðan daginn

Sigur Ros
“Góðan daginn”

Don’t ask me what they’re singing about – I’ve no idea. I do know the title means good morning or good day. I’ve been spending a lot of time listening to this album and others of Sigur Rós lately. It seems to help counteract the current stresses with work. Something about the falsetto here is soothing. Sigur is like the Radiohead of Iceland. I really love their music.

From the Album: Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust

I want a little sugar…

Nina Simone
“I want a little sugar in my bowl”

A few weeks ago I was in the Dominican Republic second-shooting a wedding with Dallas Wedding Photographer Stacy Reeves. We had an absolute blast!

During the reception, a lot of great music was played. One of the songs I had never heard was this one by Nina Simone – “I want a little sugar in my bowl”. I just thought I should share it with everyone here. Sit back, grab your loved one, and dive into this tune.

I hope you enjoy.

Brendan James – Green

Brendan James

This one’s just a teaser. Sorry folks. If I can find a complete acoustic copy of Brendan performing this song, I would love to post it (brendan, if you’re reading this, send me a message!)

This guy is a modern day James Taylor. Listen to the enunciation in his voice when he sings – remind you? Brendan is a great singer/songwriter. He apparently didn’t start really getting into writing music until his sophomore year in college. College has a way of bringing things like that out of you I suppose.

Anyway, if you like this little bit, go buy his album or download it for $8 at The CD was released just 8 days ago. We’ve got to support more singer/songwriters!

If you must have more immediately, he’s on YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook

Fisher – I Will Love you

“I will Love You”

Today I got a very nice email from a Kayla W. inspiring me to post music again. I’m truly sorry that I have neglected everyone and haven’t been posting with very much frequency lately. I’ll try to do better! I have been listening to a lot of music and feel the urge to post new music coming back.

So today I give you an old one. You’ve probably heard of this song, but if you haven’t you’re in for a real treat.

… And thank you for the kind words Kayla.

Matthew Andrae
“Sweet Celine”

Browsing youtube music videos the other day, I stumbled on this video. When I found it, it had about 100,000 views and is now up to more than 500,000 views. I really would like you to hear his other music. His link is below. If you like this song, buy his new CD. It’s only $10.

This is a song he wrote for his daughter, celine. He’s singing it about himself (matthew james andrae) and sweet Celine.

It’s touching. It’s honest. It’s the kind of music I love to discover.


Chris Cendana
“When The Lights Burn Out”

I discovered Chris today on youtube. You should watch all his videos on youtube.

He also has a myspace page.

His influences include John Mayer, Musiq Soulchild, Jason Mraz, Brian McKnight, and Jack Johnson.


Kate Havnevik – Kaleidoscope

Kate Havnevik

I’ve been very “downtempo” lately. Long hours at work probably have something to do with it.

I received a very nice email from a Alex O. which inspired me to find something tonight.

I’ve been listening to a love of Kate Havnevik, Imogen heap, (and frou frou of course) lately. I’ve also been listening to Gnarles Barkley and some rapper named Flo rida – his stuff is just hilarious, and he makes use of interesting rhythmic phrasing.

Anyway, the opening of this song, “kaleidoscope” reminds me of opening scenes of dramas, or closing credits. It’s somber and beautifully arranged. I hope this helps be break the ice on another year of posting music.

Please enjoy. Thank you all for the encouraging emails.

One year down

I closed out a year on the site, but I have been getting requests to post more music.

Officially, the project is over, but I think I’ll continue to post sporadically, as I discover music that I love.

I’m incredibly busy until March 3rd. After that, look for more music to hit the site.

Cat Power – The Greatest

Cat Power
“The Greatest”

Well, I wouldn’t call her the greatest. That might be reserved for Mohammed Ali, but she is great.
I first learned of Cat power through television commercials. After that, I went musical-spelunking for her works. She’s got some great tunes.

This one has bits of “Moon River” in it. Can you pick it out?

It’s Christmas Time!

Christmas is in full swing. I’ve sunk a lot of money on christmas lights, a tree, and all manner of christmas decor this year. This is what happens when you buy a house. Be warned.

I’m continuing a tradition I started a few years ago – I’m putting up an internet radio station complete with Christmas music. It’s All Christmas all the time! I have a pretty eclectic mix of tunes in rotation and I’ll have the radio station up 24/7 until New Years day. Click here to tune in. You can use Shoutcast (windows) or iTunes (win/mac), or whatever else can read a playlist stream. If you want more details about the stream:
ENJOY. The Power of Christmas Compels you.

p.s. I drew that Christmas tree in 2003 with only a mouse in photoshop. Cartoony aint it?
